Congratulations to Bryant Greene of Sewell, NJ on the purchase of two of our breeding males - Honey Boy Edward and Jumpin' Jack Flash! They will make a terrific addition to his farm where he intends to raise alpacas for yarn production among many other activities. Honey Boy and Jack will produce offspring with great characteristics for quality alpaca yarn production. Honey Boy was in the top 15% of EPDs for Mean Staple Length (fiber length) and Standard Deviation of Average Fiber Diameter (consistency). Jack was in the top 1% for Average Fiber Diameter (fineness), SDAFD (again, consistency), and Spin Fineness. We hope the sires will provide Bryant with many wonderful fiber producing alpacas and wish him the best of luck in all of his farm endeavors!
The second of our 2 expected spring cria's arrived on May 29. Abracadabra (named from the Steve Miller Band song) weighed in at 17.6 lbs and was standing and nursing in about an hour. Deacon Blues, our cria born about 2 weeks earlier, was very happy for a playmate and was anxious for "Abby" to get big enough to run around the pasture with him. Fortunately, thanks to mama Rhiannon, Abby was strong enough to play in just a few days. Now the two of them are inseparable and tend to annoy the adults as they romp around the pasture!
