Reluctantly offered... This hembra is a perfect foundation female for Sixth Day Farm. 'Foundation' means something solid to build on: a perfect description of Louise.
Louise is retaining the vigor and fiber qualities we all want to see in our older alpacas. Her crimp, fiber diameter and uniformity are substantially above average, and exceptional for her age. These are the qualities that the best ot the Alianza alpacas are famous for.
Sire - Hemingway is the quintessential 'impact' sire; his influence on the improvement of fiber quality in alpacas can be seen around the world.
Dam - The white import, Pperuvian Analia. Her production record of 10 registered crias, with the last borm when she was estimated to be 16 years old shows that she has had the long productive life as a brood-female that we all want in our herds.
Fleece - Louise's fiber exhibits the high-frequency crimp and organization to her fiber that Hemingway is known for. Like Hemingway, she also has admireable density. Check out her fiber 'stats'.
Progeny include: - Franklin's Liberty, Sired by the Felix son, Accoyo Franklin. See him on our herdsire list. - Mr Liam is her son sired by Mister Maverick. - Louisiana, her 2010 cria, is outstanding. - Lure, her 2012 daughter sired by Sultan - Louie da Storm, Tempests knockout boy with great staple length!
Hemingway is gone, so there will be no more direct daughters.
Louise is located at Sixth Day Farm East in Hilton, NY.
