We are now at the point in our retirement process that we are faced with reducing our best females.
Symphony is everything you need in a female if you are looking to produce top herdsire offspring. She has produced sub 18 micron afd fleece production with low SD. Her EPDs are balanced and among the best of the best.
As the product of both our Royal Gold and Apocalypse lines, she is being sold open as we only have males that are pretty closely related. It’s not that one of our males couldn’t be used if you are interested in a linebreeding/outcrssing protocol.
Symphony comes with full reproduction guaranty.
Celeste is a wonderful example of excellent conformation, highly developed fleece and supporting EPD’s.
Her dam and sire are among the best in our herd as are her offspring.

There is good news and bad news when it comes to Emily.
The good news is that it will take very little effort to select a worthy service sire that will help improve her offspring in that the males will be easy to identify.
The bad news is their aren’t many males that will meet her high standards.
A draw back when you are dealing with breeding among the best of the best is that one would almost hope for male offspring as her female offspring will be even harder to match up to a service sire. (Sounds like the equivalent problem as having too pretty, too well bred or too much money.)
Carma is a solid foundation female with very balanced EPD trait Valuesand we expect her production to be predictably spectacular. Her fleece is extremely fine with a high degree of character and uniformity. She has a solid ancestry that combines the best of the Accoyo and Allianza. Her dam, Capella, is a champion white and has been one of our top producers that we is still in our breeding program. Carma will bring good things to your herd.
She is a solid producer among the top females in the US.
Improving or maintaining fiber fineness in our herds is always a factor in our decision process of making breeding and purchasing selections. The down side to that is without equal attention being paid to fleece weight production, you may be handicapping your future herd fiber production. With only a 2 micron improvement if fiber diameter fleece weight production will drop approximately 25% without an increase in density and/or staple length.
Curley Sue, an offspring of a couple of our best producers, she has been ranked among the top 25 females for the combined index value of improving both AFD Fineness and Fleece Weight. That puts her close to the top 5% of the top 1% of almost 45,000 alpacas used in the 2016 EPD report. Curley Sue is a super fine, dense and show winning female that will outperform 99.5% of all females with a genetic profile.
Everybody’s bottom line is affected by the value of the males produced. Curley Sue is a female that will produce useful herdsires and be a valued member to your breeding program. A show quality female with superb genetics … true seedstock.
Her full brother Callisto is on our herdsire row and is one of the top males in the EPD program to improve fineness with the greatest increase in fleece weight as well.
