Fieldmaster is arguably the finest male alpaca produced on our farm.  His ancestry includes the notable genetics of PPPeruvian Augusto, PPeruvian Timoteo, PPeruvian Pluro, PPPeruvian Pisco Sour, CPeruvian Winchester, Hilltop's Dreamer's Advocate, and MFI Peruvian Donovan.

Originally registered as medium brown, Fieldmaster initially showed as a juvenile in the black color group. He has matured to a rich, very dark brown, which was his color class as a yearling.  Fieldmaster has a wonderful, easygoing temperament, correct conformation, good bite and of course the great presence and that fine, soft fleece that has made him stand out  in the show ring. He has shown under at least 7 different judges, and all have appreciated the strength of his combined attributes.

To date, Fieldmaster has garnered a Champion Banner, three Reserve Champion Banners, and 8 Blue Ribbons, in very competitive shows.  (See Awards, listed below, for a complete listing.)
August, 2012 Update:
We are excited to announce that Fieldmaster has begun his breeding career at Patchwork Meadow, and has settled his first females, with pregnancies confirmed by ultrasound.

A limited number of  breedings to Fieldmaster are being offered at the introductory fee of $1,000 for a drive-by breeding, or $1,250 for a female left at the farm for breeding.  These prices are good for breedings reserved by September 15, 2012.
