2019 AOA Nationals

We took 4 alpacas to the 2019 AOA National Show and each one of them earned a blue ribbon at the show. In addition, we had one earn a championship banner and had another one earn a reserve champion banner. We are so very happy with these results!

Damion's Sis was 1st in a class of 4 in the walking fleece class of brown yearlings.

Goldstar's Zoltar was 1st in the full fleece 3"-11" light yearling male halter class.

Berry Sweet Skylar Rose was 1st in her full fleece light yearling halter class and then went on to be the reserve champion light Suri female.

WLK Remington Steele earned a blue ribbon in the invited champion grey male class as well as the championship.

Take a look at what we have to offer and please contact us with any questions you may have about our Suris. Currently, due to circumstances we couldn't control, we are having to board our alpacas with Joe Miller of Nebraska Alpaca Company in Geneva, Nebraska. We'd be glad to set up a visit to see the quality alpacas we have boarded there at this time.

We are striving for production quality fleeces on show quality Suri alpacas by using information collected in many ways and from different sources. First, we have studied genetics and the quality of offspring produced by certain males and females. We want pedigrees to include alpacas that have historically produced quality offspring. By studying pedigrees, we look to purchase quality Suris as our foundation herd and when studying the conformation found in each alpaca in our herd, a person will find it to be exemplary.

Second, we have shown our alpacas at shows throughout the country to hear what judge's have to say. We listen seriously to those comments and work to maintain strengths and improve upon the weaknesses found in our Suris.

Third, we have collected sound scientific data on our foundation herd from different sources and are continuing to do that. We are working on getting all of our production females fiber tested and in the database with the AOA for Expected Progeny Differences (EPDs). Look at the individual listings for our females and click on the link to check out those EPDs. You'll see a lot of them are extremely good, and some we'd say are exceptional.

We have tried to get all of our herdsires in the AOA's EPD database, too. The majority of those EPD rankings are good. One also needs to consider such things as physical size, lock structure, luster, and other things that aren't measured in EPDs when choosing the herdsire to be put with each female. Skin biopsies done to collect data on fleeces will also eventually be completed on our mature herdsires. The results for the skin biopsies show fleeces that are at the least very good and most are exceptional. Again, we look at all of this data and try to maintain strengths and improve upon weaknesses in our breeding decisions.

We are willing to do financing. We may also be willing to offer a discount for a cash purchase or a credit card purchase. If the purchase of an alpaca is financed, no interest will be charged if paid off in 1 year. Stud fees must be paid for in advance. Transport of a purchased alpaca to the buyer's farm is the buyer's responsibility unless some other agreed upon arrangement is made.
