Fiber Stats:

Empressa has been bred to our new herdsire, 3/4 Accoyo WRSR Peruvian Payday, and is confirmed pregnant by ultrasound for a June, 2010 cria. We’re looking forward to seeing his density combined with her color.  If her previous two cria are any indication, it should be a knockout.

Empressa is a vicuña patterned, medium fawn, 1/2 Accoyo beauty sire by the now deceased Ppperuvian Sedoso, an influential herdsire on the West Coast.  She also carries some of the best Bolivian bloodlines, including that of Acero Marka’s Harry Brown. She has good conformation, with a strong suri head. Empressa has proven herself to be an attentive mother with her first two cria, and she still has the energy and joie de vivre of a cria herself. She and her cria are always investigating the barnyard. If they can find something that rattles when they mouth it, they are happy alpacas.

We purchased Empressed at auction in 2007, and she was in poor shape from being transported across the country.  She delivered her first cria early that fall, but we were impressed that she held the pregnancy at all.  We made the decision to hold her open until the spring before rebreeding her; thus, there is no gap in her breeding history. She has taken on the first breeding both times we have owned her, and had a textbook delivery this spring, a beautiful Sirius Black daughter.

Her 2009 cria, Lindy, is a gorgeous light fawn spit fire who was up and running in minutes. Her fiber twists to the skin and she has a very typey look. Her luster is outstanding. She lacks a little density, but that should be easy to add to her future cria with careful breeding decisions. It hasn’t stopped her from placing first in her first two shows, either.  UPDATE – Lindy placed second of five fawn yearling females at MAPACA!

Both of Empressa’s cria to date have had excellent bites and conformation. They are also some of the most personable animals on the farm.
