Imperial is my PR alpaca. He's been in a local holiday parade and used for pictures with Old English Sheepdog puppies. I bought him from Anthony Stachowski after hearing the judge say, as he's receiving a 1st place, that everyone should feel his fiber, it feels just like butter. Imperial passes his dense, dense fiber and color to his offspring. Imperial has crias of color from white to silver grey (his specialty is a deep consistent brown, like himself.)
Natasha has been one of our foundation herd for a few years. She is currently taking a well-deserved "break" from being a mom and although we'd like her to stay because she's such an easy keeper, we really do need to move some of these girls! She has given us 3 beautiful cria, one of whom was an adorable "fancy" girl out of MFI Peruvian Forstner. Tragically, we lost that cria to what appeared to be a head trauma injury at 3 weeks of age. We are so very grateful to have this true black girl in our family. She is the most unobtrusive girl in the herd. She's a little bit shy in general, but not really skittish. Natasha never gives us any trouble about anything, never any disagreements with her herdmates, she kushes for every injection and is very easy for one person to work on alone. We always save her to the end on ivermectin day because working on her is like taking a break! Natashas sire is award-winning SA Imperial, who took 1st and 2nd place at the Autumn Fibre Classic three years in a row. Thanks to Natasha, we are able to count both Snowmass Legacy Gold and Peruvian Snowmaster genetics in our herd as she has produced excellent crias for us from each of these lines. Her second cria, Luz Clarita del Cielo, is one of the prettiest little ones we have ever seen. She has the same buttery soft handle as her older brother, Rey del Toque Dorado and the easy personality of her dam.
