NEW CRIAS FOR 2005
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!
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.
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
& 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.
Lighting received a fourth place in his class at MaPACA.
We are very proud of him.
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.
We sheared our alpacas and had two other farms bring
theirs on May 1st. We
sheared 20 Alpacas and 2 Llamas.
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
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.
COME ONE, COME ALL!
Alpacaholic Acres now has a new store - great prices!
