Madeline is a wonderful foundation female for our farm. She is also a great alpaca for public relations, since people are drawn to her for her gentle, laid-back nature! Madeline is an easy birther and an attentive mother with ample milk for her crias. Madeline has had three crias so far, and all have been solid colored. Mighty Fine Finnegan was the first cria that she gave birth to on our farm, and he has his mother’s sweet disposition as well as her super dense fiber and solid conformation. Finnegan, sired by PRA Armando, has already won blue ribbons at his first three shows, and had great fiber stats when his fiber was evaluated this year. This past spring Madeline gave birth to a beautiful dark brown female sired by Cosmic Warlord. Annie’s Song has strong, straight legs and dense, fine fiber. Madeline sure can put outstanding babies on the ground! This time we chose to breed her to Patchwork Meadow’s Braveheart, a Lancaster son, for an early summer 2009 birth. This will be Braveheart’s first offspring, and Madeline was a natural match for the outstanding qualities she possesses.

Madeline is half accoyo through her sire Snowmass Incaaccoyo Star. With Peruvian Snowmaster for her grandfather and MA Maggie for her dam, Madeline has great genetics to bring to her offspring. She has no difficulty perpetuating the family reputation for excellence.

May 31, 2009 Update:  Madeline's cria, Sweet Adelaide, has arrived.  Please look for information about this beautiful Braveheart daughter on our Crias page.

Fall, 2009:  Madeline has been bred to The Patriot of Patchwork Meadow for a Spring, 2010 birth.   We anticipate yet another offspring of excellence for Madeline!

Spring, 2010 Update:  Patriot's Providence, born May 17, 2010, is a light fawn beauty!  Please look for her on our Crias page. 

Summer, 2011:Madeline has been bred to Patagoinia's El Chono, a handsome award-winning herdsire from Quarry Ridge Alpacas, for an August, 2012 birth.
