Olivia was one of the first alpacas that we carefully selected for our foundation herd and what a great choice she was! She has produced four girls for us, and every one has been exceptional. Olivia’s daughters have all been darker than she is, ranging from light brown to black. In fact, each one closely reflects the color of the herdsire. Olivia has had two outstanding girls from champion sire Hilltop’s Dreamer’s Advocate, so she was rebred to him last fall. Diego De Buel, Olivia's first male offspring, was born in October, 2008. Please look for information about Diego on our Crias page.  Olivia is a Royal Fawn granddaughter, so she brings legendary genetics to any pairing.

Olivia is an attentive and protective mother, with plenty of milk. Her crias always have good birth weights, high IgGs, correct conformation and very fine fiber. In fact, Olivia’s micron count at one year of age was 17.6, confirming the fineness of her fleece. Olivia’s bite has always been correct; no teeth trimming for this girl!

Four of Olivia’s daughters are now in our breeding program, so we have decided to offer Olivia for sale at this time. It is difficult to let her go, but we know that her lineage will continue on our farm. Olivia would be an important asset for any farm looking for excellence in their breeding plan.

October, 2009 Update:  Olivia has a confirmed pregnancy to our outstanding herdsire, Mighty Fine Finnegan, with a due date in the Summer of 2010. 

Update:  Olivia's dark fawn son, Beekman, was born on July 9, 2010.  He has such potential to follow in his father's blue ribbon winning footsteps that we chose to re-breed Olivia to  Finnegan, for a summer 2011 cria.

2011 Update:  Power Surge was born to Olivia on July 25, 2011.  He is every bit as fine as his look-alike brother, with the gentle personality of his sire.  

Once our( silver grey herdsire) Ikon's crias started arriving, we knew he would be a good match for Olivia, who usually throws crias the color of their sire.  We are expecting an August, 2012 delivery from Olivia.

Olivia is offered with a live birth guarantee and a free re-breeding to a Patchwork Meadow Alpacas herdsire.
