Doc is a lovely Pacific Pride son. Our first cria, he may just also become our first herd sire. He has excellent density on a compact frame with good luster and a well defined lock structure. Importantly, he has a very tight SD on his histogram, and a wonderful handle as a result. He has a full beard and truly typey suri head, and a perfect bite. Doc carries impressive bloodlines on both sides of his pedigree, and he lived up to his potential in the show ring as a juvenile.

Youngest in his class at NAAS, Doc won praise for his density, fineness and luster, as well as his conformation and balance. His excellent uniformity of lock structure was also noted. Doc then returned from MAPACA, the largest alpaca show in the world, with a solid 4th in a class of 8 medium browns. The judge definitely liked his fiber!

Doc started off 2009 with a blue ribbon at NAAS. The judge liked his regrowth, overall uniformity of lock and very typey suri look. He then placed 5th of 6 at MAPACA, where his fiber was again praised.

We hope that Doc will be ready to breed in the spring of 2010. His introductory breeding fee will be $750 for the first ten females. He is unrelated to many of New England’s colored alpacas – check his pedigree carefully. If you like what you see, lock in a bargain.

Chimi Changa

February 24th, 2010 • By: jilladmin Blue Ribbon Winners, Fawn, Males

Chimi Changa
ARI 1023053, DOB 8/24/05, medium brown

Sire: Bernabe el Boliviano M0074, ARI 815886, dark brown
Dam: Caribbean Honey, ARI 811401, dark fawn
Heritage: 1/2 Peruvian, 1/2 Bolivian

Stud Fee: $500
Price: $2,000

Show Record:
1st place, Juvenile Light Brown Males, 2006 MAPACA Jubilee (class of 4)
5th place, Juvenile Light Brown Males, 2006 Nationals (class of 8 )
1st place, Shorn Fawn Yearling Males, 2006 NE Coastal Classic (class of 1)
3rd place, Shorn Dark Yearling Males, 2006 Green Mountain Spectacular
2nd place, Full Fleece Brown Yearling Males, 2007 NAAS (class of 3)
3rd place, Full Fleece Dark 2+ Males, 2008 NAAS (class of 3)

Fiber Stats:
2006: Mean: 26.4, SD 8.5, CV 32.2, shear weight 6.6 pounds
2009: Mean: 29.75, SD: 6.54, CV: 22

Chimi Changa is a strong young male out of Bernabe El Boliviano (who has black in his ancestry) and a Peruvian Aureo daughter. He has proud, correct conformation with heavy bone and a typey face. His dark fawn/light brown fiber is dense, with good regrowth. With each shearing, he is showing more and more of a gray hue to his fiber, so it will be interesting to see what he can produce. Chimi is aggressively interested in breeding.

At this time, Chimi is only available to travel for outside breedings within roughly a 200 mile radius of the farm, or for drive-by visits here to the farm. Since he is new to breeding and we are too, we are making his fee a very reasonable one that essentially covers our time and gas money. Once he has proven himself and we see the caliber of cria we are sure he can create, we are certain that his fees will be increased.

Since we have so few females to use Chimi over, we are also offering him for sale at a very reasonable price. Look at his show record and then come take a look at him if you are interested in a solid young herdsire.

Chimi is available for drive-by breedings within 200 miles of Bag End, or you may bring your dam here for service.

WRSR Peruvian Payday

February 8th, 2010 • By: jilladmin Accoyo Bloodlines, Full Peruvian, Males, White

WRSR Peruvian Payday
ARI 30029380, DOB 10/24/05, white

Sire: Peruvian Baccarat, ARI 185904, beige
Dam: DDF Mulan, ARI 810037, beige
Heritage: Full Peruvian, 3/4 Accoyo

Stud Fee: $1,000 for the first ten outside breedings
Price: not for sale at this time

Show Record: Payday was never shown

Fiber Stats: We did not own Payday at the time of 2009 shearing

WRSR Peruvian Payday is full brother to Wild Rose Suri Ranch’s excellent herd sires Accoyo Razor and Navajo Gold. Payday was purchased as a young juvenile by a breeder who had an enviable problem – too many high quality studs and not enough opportunities to prove them.  So Payday has not yet had a chance to see if he can match the production records of his brothers.  Although Payday was never shown, we think he holds his own with males his age, and we believe that he will create show worthy (and winning) cria for us.  His first cria are due in June of 2010.

Payday’s sire is Accoyo Baccarat, a rare beige full Accoyo herdsire with outstanding fleece characteristics, including fineness, luster and locks. Payday’s dam is half Accoyo DDF Mulan, out of Bruxo, who passes luster and that coveted greasy feel to her offspring.

Payday has now been bred to four females, all confirmed pregnant via ultrasound. The first three girls took on their first breedings, and so Payday was three for three on his first three attempts at breeding. The second girl took two tries, still pretty impressive for a rookie stud.  From the beginning, Payday aggressively pursued open females while ignoring those that were pregnant; he also takes “No!” for an answer when spit testing and we think he will mature into an excellent stud that is easy to handle. He certainly is learning what “Let’s go to work” means!

Payday is available for drive-by breedings within 200 miles of Bag End, or you may bring your dam here for service.


Shavano’s Annasinyë

February 8th, 2010 • By: jilladmin Black, Blue Ribbon Winners, Champions, Females

Black alpaca cria

Shavano’s Annasinyë
ARI 31916110, DOB 8/14/09, true black

Sire: Shavano, ARI 30358652, true black
Dam: Sierra Bonita’s Peruvian Storm Girl, ARI 847825, true black

Price: call for price

Show Record:
1st place, true black juvenile full fleece, 2010 MAPACA Jubilee (class of eight)
Reserve Champion, black females, 2010 MAPACA Jubilee
3rd place, black juvenile full fleece, 2010 Buckeye Alpaca Show (class of 11)
5th place, black juvenile full fleece, 2010 AOBA National Show

Fiber Statistics: Anna will be sheared for the first time in the spring of 2010

UPDATE – Anna placed first in a tough class of eight true black juveniles at the 2010 MAPACA Jubilee!  The judges praised her solid conformation, excellent density and fineness and overall architecture.  That was exciting enough – but then Anna went on to win the Reserve Champion banner in the black color class.  Anna was in the ring at the Buckeye the next weekend and competed against ten different true black juveniles. David Barboza took an agonizingly long 45 minutes to place the class – and when all was said and done, Anna placed third. She was acknowledged to have both the finest and the densest fleece in the class, but he preferred the architecture of the two placing above her. Now it’s on to Nationals to see what Amanda thinks!

Anna is a true black, full Peruvian female out of a MacGyver daughter and Shavano, the last male to beat Balboa in the ring. She is 3/8 Accoyo. Anna has incredibly fine fiber (her dam had 16 micron fiber at a year old, and is only 24 micron after five cria), and a gorgeous handle. Under that brown tipping, she is shiny and black at the skin with lots of luster. She has good coverage and independent locks – a beautiful combination of dam and sire. She is growing well, is alert, curious and quite the cutie.
