Grazing Hills Bradford

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) Medium Fawn

AOA# 32173253 DOB: 6/26/201012 yrs
We are EXTREMELY happy to have acquired BRADFORD from Grazing Hills Alpacas! Bradford is the half brother of our dearly departed Dirk. Both are sons of Accoyo-America DIOMEDES who is now deceased. Diomedes has imprinted his handsome head and his amazing fleece characteristics to these sons of his and for that reason we jumped at the chance to have another Diomedes boy on the farm! Bradford x Vanora = Kaeleigh: our first Bradford baby born on the farm June 2020. She's a beaut! Kaeleigh tu ...

Diomedes' VANORA of Stirling Ridge

Huacaya Open (Female) White

AOA# 31414920 DOB: 9/19/200814 yrs
Vanora was bred to Grazing Hills Bradford and birthed a gorgeous girl on 6/17/2020 named Kaeleigh. They both have amazing fleece with the super inherited quality of lingering fineness and we fully expect this cria to follow in their impressive steps. This is such a beautiful cria, we rebred Vanora to Bradford for a 2021 cria born 8/11/2021. It's a boy! A dandy beautiful boy! Vanora's 2020 histogram is now posted—super nice!

Grazing Hills Stud Muffin!


Huacaya Herdsire (Male) True Black

DOB: 6/22/201111 yrs
Voted most-likely to be our up and coming stud muffin. He is eye catching among the herd. Antonio of Golden Pine is a highly improved, calm, manageable true black herdsire who retains his dense, fine fiber. 2021 Histogram: AFD: 22.7 SD: 4.1 CV: 18.1 %>30: 4.5% 2020 Histogram: AFD: 19.9 SD: 5.0 CV: 25.4 %>30: 3.0 2017 AFD is 20.9.

Ask a question
Her Scottish name, Kaeleigh, is pronounced Kaylee. This beautiful young lady is now 2 and bred this spring to true black Antonio. She's gorgeous and you need to look at her EPD in the side bar! Fantastic fleece qualities! Not only is she in the top 15% of fineness (AFD & SF), but in the top 10% of staple length and the top 7.5% of fleece weight! Fineness + heavy fleece weight = density in my book!

What do Kaeleigh's EPD stats mean? They indicate what she will likely contribute to fleece characteristics:
Avg Fiber Diameter (AFD) will likely decrease by -1.335, really good! TOP 11% in the nation!
Standard Deviation of AFD will decrease by -0.232, good! TOP 20% in the nation!
Spin Fineness (SF) will decrease by -1.384, excellent! Top 11% in the nation!
% of Fibers > 30 micron will decrease by -4.123, amazing! Top 22% in the nation!
Mean Curve (MC) of fiber will increase by 1.273, super!
% Medullation (M) will increase by 1.814, (the full impact of medullation in fleece remains a question at this point in time.)
Mean Staple Length (MSL) will increase by 2.068, stunning! Top 10% in the nation!
Fleece Weight (FW) will increase by 0.6130, nice! Top 8% in the nation!

Kaeleigh is from our foundation dam, Vanora, one of the best animals on our farm with phenomenal EPDs. Her sire is Grazing Hills Bradford, who also has great EPDs, especially for fineness. We expected that Kaeleigh would have nice fiber and she is showing us it's very true!

She is pure white, she has a beautiful head and is shaping up well in the conformation department with straight topline and straight legs. Her fleece is exceptionally soft, L-O-N-G, and crimpy with heavy coverage. We are expecting her to develop into quite the little princess and we plan to use her as a foundation dam. She's a big girl like her mama. We have very high expectations in what she will produce for the farm.
