What do you get when you pair a Diomedes/Running Late line with Cochiti?...something amazing! Hezekiah's fleece is incredibly dense for a 16.3 micron, and he has that gorgeous 57 curve statistic. What isn't measured on a histogram is brightness, and his is off the charts. It didn't hurt any that his dam had a 12 micron fleece at her first shearing...her total stats took our breath away...12.4, 2.2, 17.6, 0.2!! Does she ever have a great handle?! He has a proud, kingly stance with upright ...

Stirling Ridge VALORIE

Huacaya Open (Female) Beige

AOA# 35355960 DOB: 7/27/20168 yrs
Valorie was bred to Flying Dutchman Alpacas Deacon Grey Silver BLADE (MSG) for a September 2023 cria. And on 9/14/2023 she presented us with a handsome dark brown male cria with black points (Blade's Blacksmythe). He's spunky and we think with his parentage and color he will make one fine future herdsire! Valorie has our best alpaca, Vanora, as her mama and the beautiful bay black Grazing Hills Ephraim as her sire. She was bred to gorgeous Grazing Hills Hezekiah and had her first cria June 20 ...

Joeleigh is absolutely, hands down my FAVORITE girl on the farm. She's very sweet natured, quite easy to handle, curious, has beautiful conformation and a gorgeous head, and amazing fleece! She is now a mature girl and at 3 years old is bred to Sir Galahad (a Bay Black with long staple length) for a 2024 cria. We can't wait to see what this little beauty will produce!

Joeleigh (JOE-lee) was born on June 20, 2020. As we expected from her dam, Valorie, and her sire, Hezekiah, she has gorgeous fleece! It's a crimpy light fawn, very fine, very long, and very heavy! How often do you see THAT combo???

I drool over her 2023 EPD stats! Here's what they mean for her prospective cria:
TOP 7% in the nation! Fiber Diameter (AFD) will likely decrease by -1.639, really good!
Standard Deviation of AFD could decrease by -0.043, (58%)
Top 12% in the nation! Spin Fineness (SF) will likely decrease by -1.419, excellent!
% of Fibers > 30 micron could decrease by -3.551, amazing! (30%)
Mean Curve (MC) of fiber could increase by .516, a small help. (48%)
% Medullation (M) could increase by 0.591, (the full impact of medullation in fleece remains a question at this point in time says Yocom-McColl.) (77%)
Top 2.9% in the nation! Mean Staple Length (MSL) will likely increase by 3.687, incredible!
Top 2.3% in the nation! Fleece Weight (FW) will likely increase by 0.845, super nice!

QUESTION: What does a fine fleece, with a long staple length, and a heavy fleece weight mean to you? ANSWER: Density!

This little gal is growing well and nicely conformed. Just like her little mama, she's of medium size, has a long staple, very fine fleece, and an exceptionally heavy fleece weight. They look so much alike, I sometimes have trouble telling them apart. Both Joeleigh and her mom, Valorie, have some of the heaviest fleece weights in the nation (see EPD stats).
Joeleigh has a very sweet disposition, just like her mama, and has been added to our foundation females.
