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.
