Valorie has our best alpaca, Vanora, as her mama and the beautiful bay black Grazing Hills Ephraim as her sire. She has recently been bred to gorgeous Grazing Hills Hezekiah and is spitting off! We've been wanting a Hezekiah breeding for several years, to get those Running Late genetics on the farm--we're so excited to see what this produces!

Between her dam and sire, look at the genetics behind this girl! Pperuvian Leon, Peruvian Hemingway, PPPeruvian Augusto, 4Peruvian Starr Khan, PPPeruvian Cahuide, Sunny Mesa's Tuscan Gold, Hemingway-Accoyo Nautilus, and Accoyo America Diomedes!! Goodness!

This little girl is a calm, sweet little beauty and has crimpy, apricot fleece and LOTS of it. Her mom, Vanora, has sheared 9 LBS. of 19 micron fleece for us in the past and Ephraim sheared a 4 LB. blanket at 10 months, so we expected that Valorie would have a very fine, but heavy-weight fleece. And she hasn't proved us wrong! She is our smallest girl, but shears the heaviest fleece on the farm, in fact, she has ONE OF THE HEAVIEST FLEECES IN THE NATION! 16 microns at 3 years! And did you notice that her 2nd year fleece is better than her 1st? Amazing!

2018 EPD results:
TOP 13% AFD , value - 1.159, her cria will likely have a finer fleece
SDAFD value - 0.289, her cria will likely have a more uniform fiber diameter
TOP 15% SF, value - 1.08, her cria will likely have a lower spin fineness
%F>30 value - 2.767, her cria will likely have a lower % of fibers greater than 30 micron
MC, value - 0.733, her cria will likely have a lesser frequency crimp than average
SDMC, value - 0.11, assesses the uniformity of curvature
%M, value - 1.023, her cria will likely have a more % fiber medullation
TOP 23% MSL, value 1.085, her cria will likely have a longer staple length
TOP 1% FW, value 1.139, her cria will likely have a more heavy fleece weight (this little girl weighs in at just over 100 lbs. and she ranked 90 out of 44,969 animals in the nation!)
BW, value 0.297, her cria will likely be a bit heavier for birth weight

We realize everyone's situation is different and we are willing to draw up terms agreeable to both parties. Don't hesitate to ask for a plan that works for you.
