Janice

DNA Sired verified


IAR: 114103
Colour: White
DOB: 21 November 2006

A large-framed, gentle, halter-trained female, Janice is sired by  Forestglen Lion Heart. Janice is an outstanding start to your new alpaca herd, or to upgrade an existing herd – she has an excellent pedigree which includes the iconic alpaca Purrumbete Inti on both sides of her pedigree. A rare opportunity to obtain a female with this breeding – don’t delay, she won’t be available for long!

Last shearing on 19-Nov-2011 produced 2.89 kgs Sample statistics: Mean=29.00, CV=16.5%, SD=4.80, SF=27.23. Shearing on 17-Nov-2010 produced 3.52 kgs . Janice has a lustrous, crimpy fleece inherited as you would expect from a female with her background.

Janice has been mated to Highway Star Gold Flash, our light fawn male, however, this pregnancy is still to be confirmed. Janice has proven herself to be a super-mum, she “adopted” a cria who wasn’t getting enough milk fowm her mother this year. Not only is it most unusual for an alpaca to feed a cria not her own, she came into milk even though she had not had a cria for several years. Her mothering skills are outstanding!

Savannah

DNA Parent Verified, Pregnant female


IAR: 1014398
Colour: Solid White
Cria Due: Autumn 2018

Savannah is a young white female in the early stages of pregnancy (due March 2018). She is a lovely quiet alpaca with a small frame and with some impressive alpacas in her pedigree: Alpine Fiber’s Brutus (imported from USA and now an old boy but once regarded as one of New Zealand’s top stud males), Silverstream Faberge (a former NZ National champion who has been exported to Belgium), and Coricancha Brujo (a son of renowned Australian sire Purrumbete Highlander) and formerly the flagship of the Alpaca Association NZ as an ideal alpaca.

Last shearing on 14-Nov-2016 produced 1.19 kgs (2nd fleece).
Sample statistics: Mean=20.90, CV=22.9%, SD=4.80, SF=20.69, CF=96.1%.
Savannah’s second shear shows she is holding her fineness with a micron of 20.90 and a comfort factor of 96%

Savannah has been mated to our young Australian black boy (BJ) so could produce either a white or a coloured cria. Black Jack’s potential is underscored by having a peek at the alpacas in his pedigree: his sire Bonnie Park Black Thunder is descended from NWA Ltd Ruffo, a well known Peruvian-bred, US stud imported into Australia some years ago. Other alpacas of note in his pedigree include Coonawarra Julius, a black male who needs no introduction to serious breeders of black alpacas and Alpaca Specialist Lady Sambucca ET

Black Jack is sired by Bonnie Park Black Thunder, an impressive blue-black male with an equally impressive Australian Show record, including consecutive placings in the 2004 and 2005 AAA National Shows.

Studs

Egmont Hunter



Colour: Solid White

A solid white sired by the fabulous Silverstream Faberge, Supreme Champion at the 2010 Alpaca Association National Show. Faberge has now been exported to Europe, so males sired by him are keenly sought after!

Hunter has a pedigree recognised as superior by New Zealand alpaca breeders, including such alpacas as PERUVIAN HEMINGWAY G171 (USA), ILR ALPINE FIBER’S BRUTUS (Imp. U.S.A), ILR PERUVIAN DON JULIO G159 (Imp. U.S.A), PUCARA JULIANA (Aus), NWA LTD RUFFO G4574 (Imp. U.S.A) plus others.

Hunter is a smaller statured male, but manages to pump out the fleece anyway – he averages over 4 1/2 kilo every shear!  Add to this his crimpy fleece, and low micron for age, and you have a very desirable package. His cria have impressed us with dense, soft fleeces – Hunter has the potential to sire many valuable cria.
