Oh My Have We Got Some Cria This Season!!
We got a very late start to our breeding season last year as we purchased over 100 breeding females from Heart’s Desire Farm in West Virginia, and did not get them delivered to our Colorado Mountain Sky Ranch until late August. But, you know they say that good things come to those who wait, and my oh my what good things have come for our waiting. We now have 12 cria on the ground out of a total of about 23 that we are expecting this season and we have some fleece and confirmation that are just outstanding. We have been blessed with eight (8) girls and four (4) boys to this point, and we only see one that is possibly not worthy of our show string, and even that one is still in the hunt.
We have four (4) girls out of Snowmass Inspiration (co-owned with Pucara International), our unbelievable Snowmass Perfection (A Legacy X PacaBells son) X Snowmass Senorita (a Snowmaster daughter). You do not get much better breeding than this boy, who was a prized member of the Snowmass showstring. We are going to have a Get of Sire Class with these girls next spring that will be quite impressive.
There are also impressive cria out of Snowmass Ice Man, the first west coast get of NWA Ltd. Predictor (Hemingway X Macarena), Predictor’s son HDF Prince John, and HDF Accoyo Sir Isaac. You should really come by and see these youngen’s while the weather is still awesome. The mother’s of all of these are also spectacular in their genetics, confirmation, fleece quality and mothering behavior.
Come and visit our sustainable farm here in Northern Colorado and see how to make money with agriculture on a small acreage using a variety of unique agriculture technologies. We are very proud of our genetic breeding herd of quality alpacas here, and if you want to become a part of the Mountain Sky and Nourish the Planet Team we would love to have you on board.
