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 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 is so ...

IONA, has just been sold to Meadowlark Heritage Farm! Congratulations on a "fine" choice!

She is the beautiful white daughter of white Khloë and medium fawn Bradford. She is named after the Scottish isle of Iona because she has a small medium fawn spot on the left side of her nose!

Her genetics carry Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star, Snowmass Snow Legend, Peruvian Snowmaster, Microsoft, Caligula, Hemingway, and Hemingway-Accoyo Nautilus lines, making her 11/16 Peruvian, 3/16 Bolivian, and 1/8 Chilean (if I did my math correctly!)

We now have her histogram on this first year shearing and it is VERY LONG, phenomenally long! 141mm to be exact which is 5 1/2 inches!!
Looking at Khloë's and Bradford's EPDs, this combination which produced Iona is likely to give her a finer fleece (AFD -1.229), a better spin fineness (-1.205), a very low percent of fibers over 30 micron (-4.3), more curve (+2.316), a longer staple length (+0.794), and a bit heavier fleece weight than average (+0.265). I'm glad to explain these numbers in more detail if you give me a call!

She is a larger alpaca like her mother and I expect her to be able to birth easily and unassisted. If she's like her mom in the milk department, she will have plenty and her offspring will need no supplementing. That makes life easy.
