Alpacas stand approximately 36 inches at the withers and adults generally weigh between 150 and 200 pounds. They are gentle, clean, quiet, curious and intelligent animals with strong herding instincts. Baby alpacas are called "crias." Mother alpacas hum to communicate with their babies.

Godiva's Lady Morgan is a real treasure, and just what we were hoping for when we bred Godiva to Bel Canto's Sinbad. Her beautiful face, shiny curly coat and upright posture just beg for a closer look. Usually serene and close by her mother's side, when Morgan cuts loose she is fast and impish. She certainly holds her own with the other crias! Morgan's fiber is coming in nicely, especially for a fall cria.
Morgan has grown into a lovely adult, and she has produced two very nice offspring. Chrome Run, a stunning silver grey male, was born to Morgan and Ikon in June of 2011.
Since she demonstrated the ability to throw grey, Morgan was then bred to multiple-champion herdsire, Staghorn Valley's Summer Elixir. Their cria, Rafaela, was born in June of 2012. "Rafi" is black with silver fibers appearing as she matures, with outstanding fiber character and density. We are very impressed with this cria, and Morgan's ability to throw offspring that reflect the best characteristics of their sires.
Morgan has been bred again to Ikon, in the hope that another silver grey cria will arrive in early summer, 2013.
