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 ...

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 ...

Ask a question
Jaxxon is coming up on 2 years. He's a very handsome lad a bit on the smaller side. Nevertheless, he's shearing quite a lot of VERY FINE & LONG (over 5") fleece. His parents have superb EPDs and his fleece looks and feels fantastic! We now have the stats to highlight why that fleece handles so well. We were 99% sure his EPD results would be superior, and WOO-HOO, look at them! His ranking percentile is out of 30,965 male alpacas.

His 2023 histogram and EPD are in (see sidebar) and we are ecstatic! Here's what they predict for his cria:
TOP 7% for AFD, —1.747: likely to decrease fiber diameter in offspring
SDAFD, —0.169: likely to decrease standard deviation in offspring (ranked 43%)
TOP 9.5% SF, —1.671 likely to decrease spin fineness in offspring
TOP 21% %F>30, —4.935: likely to decrease fibers over 30 micron in offspring
MC, 1.098: likely to increase mean curvature in offspring (ranked 43%)
Ranked 86% for %M, +1.123, likely to increase medullation in offspring (Yocom-McColl says "the full impact of medullation in fleece remains a question at this point in time.")
TOP 6% for MSL, +2.845: likely to increase staple length in offspring
TOP 9.5% for FW, +0.64: likely to increase fleece weight in offspring

What does that fine crimpy fleece (17.5 micron and 49.5 curve) with a long staple (5.15") and a heavy fleece weight add up to? DENSITY!

Consider this guy as an up and coming herdsire. Nice boxy, straight and square conformation.

Jaxx is halter-trained, loads in a trailer, and is a sweet-natured, nicely mannered fellow.
