April

Category: Females under $2000

Pregnant female: exciting range of colour options for her cria!

IAR: 1017647 | Colour: Medium brown | DOB: 09/04/2016 | Cria Due: September 2019

April is a dainty, perfectly conformed little female with great potential as a breeding alpaca. She is expecting a cria in spring 2019. Of course, as per our commitment at The Alpaca Place, April’s parentage has been verified by DNA and she is halter trained to boot. A great little starter alpaca, April’s father , Huari Lincoln, was a black and she therefore carries that colour genetically although she herself is a very pretty medium brown.

April’s fleece is very dense and at around 30 micron is of commercial quality. By using April to start your breeding herd, you can bring about fleece improvement to the next generation simply by breeding April with a fine fleeced male in future.

April has been mated to our very handsome young grey male stud NZ Eikon Chico. Both April and Chico have excellent conformation and are likely to produce a very attractive cria for you. To put you in the draw for just about everything, she could produce a black, a silver grey, a rose grey, a brown or a fawn cria from this mating.

Tessa

Category: Females $2000-$5000

Pregnant Female, DNA Parent Verified

IAR: 1011293 | Colour: Rose Grey: appears Dark Brown with attractive highlights | DOB: 18/02/2012 | Cria Due: 4/2020

Tessa has confirmed ability as a breeding female. Sired by our black, Huari Lincoln, Tessa has proven that although she appears to be (and is registered as) a dark brown, she is in fact, a rose grey. She has the potential to breed grey (both silver and rose), black, brown and even fawn cria.
Tessa has been DNA parentage verified, so you know the wealth of quality alpacas in her pedigree adds to her value! Just look at her illustrious heritage: her pedigree includes well-respected alpacas such as ILR Alpine Fibers Brutus (Imp USA), who was sired by all-time great American stud Peruvian Hemingway, Pinjarra Microsoft (sired by Purrumbete Highlander, and a grandson of Purrumbete El Dorado, both outstanding Australian sires),  and ILR Pperuvian Pluro, a well known USA import to Australia.

Tessa is currently being mated to our imported black male, Black Jack BT Lord Shachor ET, so you have a 50% chance of a grey cria (either rose or silver). Cria will be due in Autumn 2020.

Strathellon Paloma

Category: Females $2000-$5000

Pregnant female

IAR: 1009965 | Colour: Solid White | DOB: 06/05/2019 | Cria Due: Autumn 2020

With a pedigree stacked with high quality ancestors, Paloma is a quality breeding female with a long breeding life ahead of her. Her pedigree includes such alpacas of renown as Jolimont Conquistador, Jolimont Warrior, ILR Ppperuvian Auzengate,  and Somerset Peruvian Challenge. All of these high quality alpacas have inserted value to Paloma’s conformation and fibre characteristics. And when paired with our Arcady Zegna she produced a stunning male cria in February 2019.

Paloma has a male cria at foot  sired by Arcady Zegna. Born in early February he is likely to grow to be a very attractive young male alpaca, who is not included in this sale. He will not be weaned until spring 2019.

At 4 years old Paloma has a 23 micron fleece with a 90.4% comfort factor.

She has been remated to our top quality dark fawn male, Arcady Zegna. Zegna has a lustrous, dense, crimpy fleece, and at 12 years old he was still only 25 micron with an SD of only 3.9 – almost unheard of for an alpaca of his age. The son of two champions, Zegna himself was successful in the Australian show ring before being exported to New Zealand after just one year of stud duty in Australia.

Silver Shekel

Category: Females $2000-$5000

Stunning grey female

IAR: 1017649 | Colour: Silver Grey | Cria Due: Autumn 2020

NZ Eikon Silver Shekel is a highly intelligent, full-of-beans, inquisitive alpaca.  We  expect that, given her genealogy, that she will produce quality offspring. She was sired by Gunnamatta Marconi, an Australian sire that was well known in Australia in his youth because of his success in the show ring. Both he and his progeny had significant success in the NSW show scene, a major win for Marconi was being placed 2nd in the 2008 Australian National Show in the Mature Male Class – beating out all the blacks, all the greys, all the browns, and all the fawns. An uncommon victory for a grey. Shekel’s mother Coonawarra Azalia hailed from the illustrious Coonawarra alpaca stud in Australia. Shekel has her parentage verified by DNA testing

Fibfe information: Last shearing on 8-Nov-2018 produced 1.56 kgs (3rd fleece).
Sample statistics: Mean=23.70, CV=23.9%, SD=5.70, SF=23.67, CF=88.8%.
A beautiful, even coloured silver grey alpaca, Shekel has a lovely soft-handling fleece with a current comfort factor of 88%. 

Shekel is halter trained.

Shekel is currently being mated to our black stud Black Jack BT Lord Shachor (we call him BJ). Lord Shachor, known as Black Jack, or BJ, was imported from Australia in early 2015. His second fleece statistics are impressive at 17.6µ, SD 4.0, CV 22.7 and comfort factor 99.6. A true blue-black, his fleece display excellent crimp, and his over-all quality is supported by his Australian Show wins.

Pedigree Matters: Black Jacks 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. BJ has been DNA Parent Verified.

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.
BJ himself has an impressive Australian Show record, as befits his dense, crimpy, fine fleece and we hope these attributes will be passed on to Shekel’s cria. We will be unable to confirm Shekel’s pregnancy until mid May. Look up BJ’s details on our website.

Pregnant female: cria expected to be Elite level

IAR: 1011291 | Colour: Medium Fawn | DOB: 08/12/2011 | Cria Due: 24/9/2019

Empire Rose is a well built female coated in gold! She has been Parentage verified using DNA, so you know her outstanding pedigree is genuine! Classic studs included in her pedigree include Purrumbeti Inti, Purrumbete El Dorado and Jolimont Sculptor – and Empire Rose is definitely the quality product of her pedigree. Whether you have an established quality herd, or are just starting out, Empire Rose should definitely be added to your herd!

Empire Rose annually shears more than 3.5kg fleece with a lovely dense blanket. Her 1st shear stats were: Mean 20µ, sv 4.17, comfort factor 98.3%. As is normal, her fleece has strengthened as she has aged, her last stats at 4 years old were mean 27µ, sv 4.7, comfort factor 80.2%, so her fleece has stayed consistent.

Empire Rose has been mated to Highway Star Gold Flash (Light Fawn). Gold Flash is also DNA Parent Verified, his sire being the world famous Jolimont Attitude, and grandsire, the well-known Australian stud, Jolimont Sculptor. This cria will have an enviable depth of pedigree featuring some of the top alpacas in the world!

Empire Rose has had 2 previous cria sired by Gold Flash – Empire Dawn and Strike, who had first fleece stats of 16.6 and 17 micron respectively, putting them well into the Elite class,  and we are confident her current pregnancy will yield another elite alpaca.
