3 Pregnant females

We  have had an amazingly successful year, with matings as well as with births and in shows: as a result we are in a position to offer a great package of 3 pregnant females for sale.  These all have a proven track record in shows – either winners themselves or as the mothers of show winners.  All pregnancies have been confirmed by ultrasound (pregtone) at more than 60 days, with births expected in June and July 2019.

  • Lady Bea, pregnant to supreme champion, brown stud, Whistling Mr Pistache
  • Cereta, pregnant to multiple champion producing black stud, Pinkney Jetstream
  • Caramel, mid fawn female, pregnant to our young light fawn stud: a superbly dense, Travatore son, Whistling Gisborn

Package price £4,800 (no VAT) – a saving of £1,200!  We are a small herd so no VAT is payable on any of our prices.

We can offer other females as part of a package of suri female alpacas and can also arrange “Best of Both Worlds” packages for you if you would like a mix of suri and huacaya alpacas.  Please see our sales support page for information about how we support new alpaca owners/breeders.

Pregnancy warranty: These females are offered for sale pregnant. Pregnancy will be re-confirmed by “Pregtone” ultrasound prior to sale. In the unlikely event that the pregnancy does not continue to full term and result in a live cria, you can bring your female back to us for a free remate using any of our studs. We will transfer this free re-mate to another suitable breeding female of your choice if you request this.

We also offer a 50% discount on our published stud fees in future years when you bring a breeding female you bought from us for re-mating.

SWAG Fleece Show

Yesterday I had a lovely trip to the SWAG fleece and craft show in Somerset.  The craft entries were very impressive and there were lots of lovely craft stalls manned by talented alpaca owners.

IMG_4748

I had entered 4 fleeces and as you can see from the picture, they did us proud, with all 4 scoring over 70 points. The afternoon finished with the Judge, Tim Hey, presenting me with the cup for Supreme Champion Suri.

Park Side Dardanelles won Supreme Champion as well as Best White and 1st for her age class.

Park Side Bedevere won Judges Choice as well as Best Brown and 1st for his age class.

Park Side Boudicca won Best Fawn and 1st for her age class.

Poor ParkSide Dart had to settle for a second behind her paddock mate Dardanelles!

For Sale Pregnant fawn female

Caramel is a BAS registered, pregnant, fawn suri female.  She has a lovely nature and is an experienced mum who, as well as having density, has held the fineness of her fleece.

Caramel’s sire is the renowned suri herd-sire Accoyo Bulleyman and she passes on great lustre as well as density to her cria.

Caramel is a dedicated mum who births easily.  She is a herd matriarch with a gentle temperament – a perfect choice for keeping the peace in a group of hormonal females.  She never bullies any other alpacas and is so laid back that she never has anyone try to ‘hand-bag’ her.  She is the mother of one of our reserve championship winning females who has produced a superb brown female cria who will be in our show team next year.

Caramel’s Fleece Stats (9th fleece) 24.9 microns SD 5.4

Caramel is for sale pregnant, having been mated to our super dense, Travatore son, Whistling Gisborn.  The pregnancy has been confirmed by ultrasound (pregtone) with cria expected to be born in early June 2019.  We expect that this mating will produce a spectacularly dense cria.

Caramel’s Date of Birth: 20.06.2006

She would be a great choice for someone new to alpaca breeding who is interested in showing.  Price reflects that she is an older female, but she should easily be capable of producing two to three more crias.  Please see our sales support page for information about how we support new alpaca owners/breeders.

Caramel is BAS registered and up to date with all husbandry: including vaccinated, vitamin D, faecal tested and trimmed toe-nails.

Price: £1,100 (No VAT).  We are a small herd so no VAT is payable on any of our prices.

Caramel will need to go to a home where she will have at least two other female alpacas for companionship (suris or huacaya). We have packages of female alpacas on offer and can also arrange “Best of Both Worlds” packages for you if you would like a mix of suri and huacaya alpacas.

Pregnancy warranty: Caramel is offered for sale pregnant. Pregnancy will be re-confirmed by “Pregtone” ultrasound prior to sale. In the unlikely event that the pregnancy does not continue to full term and result in a live cria, you can bring your female back to us for a free remate using any of our studs. We will transfer this free re-mate to another suitable breeding female of your choice if you request this.

We also offer a 50% discount on our published stud fees in future years when you bring a breeding female you bought from us for re-mating.

Supreme champion stud and reserve supreme fleece producing companion

As we are a small herd we need to change our genetics regularly. We are selling our supreme champion herd sire Hilly Ridge Balius Blue as we now have so many of his daughters in the herd.

BaliusSupreme Champion Hilly Ridge Balius Blue is a spectacular young male with an  advanced dense fleece. Working for the first time in 2015 at just two years old, Balius has produced crias every year from 2016 and they consistently inherit his looks and density.  Balius seems to be particularly good at making a step change improvement in both fineness and density when used over coarse dark females.  When used over dark females, most of his offspring have been dark solid colours.

 

We know that sometimes it can be difficult to find compatible paddock companions for Machos. So we are offering a package of Balius with one of his sons (castrated) as a companion.  This would be a great package for someone who wants quality suri fibre.  Cnut has inherited his wonderful fleece from Balius which has fineness, lustre, uniformity and an excellent yield – his fleece won Reserve Supreme Champion at the Three Counties 2018.  As a castrated male he should retain the fine qualities of his fleece.

Package includes:

Package price £2,100
