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 ...

Valorie is now bred to Bradford for a May 2022 cria. Can't wait to see what this combo brings! 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 on 6/20/2020! We've been wanting a Hezekiah breeding for several years, to get those Running Late genetics on the farm--this has produced a gorgeous light fawn female, Joeleigh. Valorie is a very good mama, super laid b ...

Joeleigh is getting to be a mature girl and at almost 2 years old is on the docket to be bred this spring 2022. 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, it looks like she is going to have gorgeous fleece. It's a crimpy light fawn.

And just look at those EPD stats! Here's what they mean for Joeleigh's prospective cria:
Avg Fiber Diameter (AFD) will likely decrease by -1.586, really good! TOP 7% in the nation!
Standard Deviation of AFD will decrease by -0.1542, good!
Spin Fineness (SF) will decrease by -1.468, excellent! Top 10% in the nation!
% of Fibers > 30 micron will decrease by -3.587, amazing!
Mean Curve (MC) of fiber will increase by .029, a small help.
% Medullation (M) will increase by 0.7, (the full impact of medullation in fleece remains a question at this point in time.)
Mean Staple Length (MSL) will increase by 4.145, incredible! Top 2% in the nation!
Fleece Weight (FW) will increase by 0.732, super nice! Top 4% in the nation!

This little gal is growing well and nicely conformed. If she's anything like her little mama, she will be on the smaller side, but have a long staple, very fine fleece, and an exceptionally heavy fleece weight. Her mom, Valorie, has one of the heaviest fleece weights in the nation (see EPD stats) but is one of the smallest alpacas on our farm. That spells density in my book! And Joeleigh is following in her mama's traits = DENSITY!

Joeleigh has a very sweet disposition, just like her mama.

Stay tuned! We are expecting this little lady to be added to our foundation females and hope to breed her this year.
