Grazing Hills BRADFORD

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) Medium Fawn

AOA# 32173253 DOB: 6/26/201013 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 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 ...

Diomedes' VANORA of Stirling Ridge

Huacaya Open (Female) White

AOA# 31414920 DOB: 9/19/200815 yrs
Vanora was bred last year to J Creek Passion Encore, a medium brown stud with an amazing EPD! She delivered a very lively little gal we've named Bonny Lass on 6/20/2023, with no assistance. Bonny is pure snowy white! And with Vanora's EPD combined with Encore's EPD, we figured this would be a baby with phenomenal fleece—and we are right on the money . . . Bonny's EPD is in the top 5% to 25% in 7 out of 9 fleece characteristics! Vanora has been bred in the past to Grazing Hills Bradford and bi ...

Here's an up and coming herdsire! He's a BIG boy. I mean HUGE. Beautifully conformed, beautiful fleece and lots of it! He's really shaping up nicely. This boy has presence. He hasn't been proven yet, but that day is not far off. I think he's ready to try! We will start him out at $400 breeding fee. What can I say? He's gorgeous!

Locksley is sired by Bradford, our medium fawn stud with a stellar EPD. Locksley's dam is Vanora, one of our very best girls, also with a superb EPD, even at 15 years.. Both Bradford and Vanora have Accoyo America Diomedes genetics, and Locksley definitely has the good looks and the fleece that goes with those genetics.

We now have his first 2023 histogram and EPD in hand (see sidebar) and we are very pleased! He is ranked among 30,965 males. Here's what the numbers project for his cria:
TOP 18% for AFD, —1.289: likely to decrease fiber diameter in offspring
SDAFD, —0.26: likely to decrease standard deviation in offspring (ranked 30%)
TOP 18% SF, —1.306 likely to decrease spin fineness in offspring
TOP 24% %F>30, —4.604: likely to decrease fibers over 30 micron in offspring
MC, 2.077: likely to increase mean curvature in offspring (ranked 28%)
Ranked 91% for %M, +1.727, 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 17% for MSL, +1.355: likely to increase staple length in offspring
TOP 12% for FW, +0.593: likely to increase fleece weight in offspring

Combine that fine crimpy fleece (20.8 micron and 48.7 curve) with a long staple (4.6") and a heavy fleece weight and what do you get? Density!

We will do a breeding soundness exam before he gets sent to your farm to make sure he can do his magic. Or send your girls here to him and let's get him started!
