Bella means beautiful and this lady certainly is. She is absolutley solid on all counts from conformation to personality to fiber. My husband's farm favorite, her first cria was a home run with a beautiful light silver grey female. SHe has been rebred to Raven Messenger and we can't wait to see the fiber from that combination - soft to soft should deliver a heavenly mix!

Well Known macho that has thrown many award winning cria.
Isabella is that rare alpaca--a silver grey full Peruvian. She has a dainty feminine aspect from her topknot to her tail. She's got nice soft handle, good crimp and excellent conformation. To watch her move in the fields is like watching poetry in motion! She's just a delight to watch. Her Sire is the famous Peruvian Dark Knight and through her dams side she brings the wonderful C Peruvian Jaxon. Nice to see some of the Canadian Peruvian in our herd.
In fact, you may recognize this beauty! Isabella made her television debut on The View a few years back. She was incredibly poised and well behaved. I wish we could say we had something to do with that - but I think it's just in her genes. Funny note: One of the hosts of The View thought she looked like Liza Minelli....! (LOL)
Isabella's first cria, named Braveheart, was a beautiful boy from Snowmass Casanova. Her second cria is Rosehaven's Peruvian Silver Crown, born in july of 2008. That lil fella literally fell on his head (just as many cria do!), but when he got up he had a little silver streak across the top of his head. That mark remained while the rest of him slowly turned rose grey. He is truly a modern solid rose grey--except for that silver streak crowning his head!
This lady is a beautiful alpaca and great mom. Her genes would benefit any herd!
