Is Tessa a brown or a rose grey?

Tessa – is she brown or rose grey?

If you have read our page, Grey and Roan Alpacas, you will know we asked a question about Tessa – is she brown or rose grey? Genetically, she could be either, as she has a rose grey mother, however to look at, she is simply a brown alpaca with white markings. The correct answer is: we will never know, unless she gives birth to a grey cria, who has a solid coloured sire.

 

 

The question has now been answered: last Thursday, Tessa gave birth to Zorro, a lovely little grey male, sired by our black stud, Yaringa Masterclass. As a result, Tessas breeding value has increased immensly: no longer just a brown alpaca, but a rose grey, who may have more grey cria in the future – here’s hoping!
