White, 139094, Full Peruvian


Did you see her fiber test results?

Alpacas like Espirit are good examples of why using techniques like Artifical Insemination and Embryo Transfer are such valuable tools. Now deceased, these tools could have helped preserve the precious genetic material of this outstanding female.

"A.I. and E.T. are pretty basic tools. They are NOTHING like Genetic Modification (sometimes inaccurately called 'genetic engineering'). These tools simply allow us to be 'middle men' in the natural reproductive process. They can reduce the costs and risks of transportation, exposure between herds, and can allow more flexibility in a breeding program. If semen and embryo freezing techniques are employed, the use of great sires and dams can be saved for future use.

  Maple Brook Bravado  
    White, 833417, Full Peruvian  

An impressive pure Alianza Peruvian, Bravado is our foundation herdsire - in the true sense of the word, the male we have built our breeding program on.

This guy is fineness personified, with flawless conformation. His micron count at his ninth shearing was 21.8! Just look at the beautiful bundling in his fleece.

Bravado is the result of combining the finest and most proven Peruvian alpaca genetics in North America: Bueno and Hemingway. Bueno is owned by Mike & Robin Tierney of MapleBrook Farm. His stud fee was $10,000, until he stopped breeding about a year ago. Bueno has sired over 100 winning offspring, and we believe Bravado is one of his best.

Bravado's dam, NWA,Ltd Marcie contributes another line of proven superior genetics: the world famous Hemingway. Marcie's dam is Macarena, making her a full sister to well known sires Predictor, Hektor and Handsome.

Bravado's crias have fantastic fleeces! Don't take my word for it, come see for yourself.
