NEW CRIAS FOR 2005

HERDSIRE UPDATE

 

“It’s a girl” - Talullah delivered her first cria, Tiramisu on 1/29/05.  “Tira” is a beautiful taupe color a little white spot on top of her head and tip of her tail.  Tira’s Sire is “My Peruvian Justice” who was purchased by Double-O-Good  for $48,000 -  the son of the world famous Accoyo Peruvian Augusto who set the world record selling price a few years ago at the Breeders Choice Auction for $226,000.  This cria is worth a farm visit just to see her!

    On May 9th, Amber gave us yet another female cria, Bellini, a whopping 24.8 lbs.  This is the daughter of Mr. PA who won an astonishing third “Color Championship” on May 22nd at the ’05 PAOBA show at the age of 5.   “Belle” is definitely a cut above most other crias!

Belle

On May 25th, Kristy gave birth to a 15 lb female with a light brown fleece - Mochatini.  “Mocha’s fleece is incredibly soft and talk about straight front legs. The best we have ever seen!  We had thought about using a different herdsire for Kristy’s next breeding, but after seeing the beautiful results, we will be using Triple Crown again.  

Mocha

Buckskin

We had purchased Buck last Fall  because of his outstanding quality.  Since then, Buck’s fleece continues to grow and is just unbelievably dense.  He continues to grow and our hopes of seeing him as a proven herdsire keeps us excited.  Buck was entered in the PAOBA Breeder Showcase and took 2nd in a full class.  Judge Jude Anderson commented that Buckskin had the nicest and finest fleece in his class. She placed him 2nd due to his younger age.  

SPS Peruvian Cognac

Christine & Royce Stoner from Pureline Farm in Gettysburg, PA used our herdsire, Cognac, to breed Willow, one of their alpacas.  The cria is due next month.  We are excited to see the cria and hope it has the same personality and demeanor as Cognac. Cognac has very dense crimp with nice staple length. He has won awards for his fantastic fleece.   

Jersey Lightning

Jersey Lighting received a fourth place in his class at MaPACA.  We are very proud of him.  

 

Windsome Barnaby

Deep End Alpacas from New York used our Windsome Barnaby herdsire in Jan. 04.  The results are two terrific female crias for Debbie and Cory. 

 

 

 

Shearing Day

We sheared our alpacas and had two other farms bring theirs on May 1st.   We sheared 20 Alpacas and 2 Llamas.

  More Fencing

We fenced in another 1.5 acres off the existing rear pasture, about 700 feet plus two new gates.  We made changes so the alpacas have access to the automatic waters and need to build an additional shed.  This will help with seeding/spraying the different fields and rotation of the herd.  

Open Barn: October 1, 2005

Our next Open Barn is scheduled for October 1st and will be hosted by the FFA (Future Farmers of America) from Bermudian Springs High School. On May 10, a class of high school students stopped by our farm on a field trip and several students were interested in helping out with the alpacas at the event.  At this time, they are planning to have a pig roast and I have made arrangements for the York County Corvette Club to bring their cars for display. We expect to the Open Barn to be a huge success.  We will send out a special bulletin announcing the Open Barn with more detailed information as the date draws nearer.
