The last AA Today was sent out in February (2007) and at that time
we were excited about our crias being born in a few months and we
started to register for future shows. All that is behind us and once
again we had a remarkable show season and this year’s crias
surpassed our expectation. We are thrilled with our breeding
selection for next year’s crias.
Fencing: We added another acre of fencing to enlarge our pastures. This seems to be a never- ending task. Looks like more sheds and automatic waters are in the near future. This will allow us to rotate our fields to help maintain our pasture quality.
Trailer: AA purchased a larger aluminum trailer with two compartments and tack storage room for alpaca shows. This solves our problem when we take males and females to shows.
Loom: We have purchased a loom to make additional products from our Alpaca fleece – Please come check out our products made from our very own Alpacas!
We have T-shirts with cute cartoon alpacas silk-screened on
them. These are a big hit and can only be purchased at our farm. The
T-shirt comes with an alpaca cartoon on the back and an Alpaca logo
on the front pocket area. We
have several sizes and colors available - get one while they last!
Continued Educational Training: We have attended several seminars this year to keep us updated and informed as our Alpaca farm grows.
Mint Cassini participated in the Breeders Herdsire Show case at PAOBA where bids for a breeding go to the high bidder. We were delighted to enter Mint among 34 other quality herdsires. This years Herdsire Showcase raised over $40,000 for PAOBA.
Buckskin’s crias have been born and there is no disappointment with their excellent combination of fiber fineness on a structurally-sound frame. The color range is impressive from a light fawn to a dark brown.
Quan has begun breeding and we are looking forward to seeing the improvement in the Dam’s bred. Quan is a 3/4 accoyo male with very fine, dense, crimpy fleece. He has maintained a 16-micron fleece at 2 ½ years of age!
gave birth to a male cria named ZU Peruvian Lager, sired by
three-time Color Champion, R.A. Mr. Pennsylvania.
Lager has very dense fleece with crimp running to the skin.
We look forward to showing him this coming fall and spring!
This year, she has been bred to our own RA Buckskin.
Kristina Maria gave birth to a female cria we named ZU Peruvian Anisette, sired by Evander (owned by Silvercloud Farm) who has a reputation for passing on his winning genetics. It looks like he did it again with this little lady. This year, she has been bred to our own Peruvian Pinachi’s Quan.
