Faith was the first cria born to our foundation female Ellie, and we have never lost the first excitement of seeing her. She is a beauty with her sultry large eyes, long eyelashes, great topknot and vicuna-type coloring. All that in addition to great conformation, good bite, and fiber that is fine and full of character! Faith shares her dam’s wonderful laid-back disposition. She has been a wonderful mother to her first cria, Kip. Kip has fine, crimpy and lustrous white fiber. Faith gave birth easily, had lots of milk, and was incredibly attentive to her offspring. In fact, Faith is known as the “midwife” on our farm, since she is always the first alpaca to greet each newborn, with gentle caring of course!

Faith is loaded with color genetics, including grey on both sides of her family tree. Adriano, her blue ribbon sire, is a Danko son. Danko, a well-known champion grey herdsire, has a long line of blue ribbon and champion offspring. Faith’s dam, Ellie, is a Peruvian Macusani granddaughter. Faith’s half-brother Patriot is our blue ribbon, reserve champion herdsire. Ellie has consistently produced award-winning offspring, and Faith has led the way.

Faith has been bred to our outstanding light brown herdsire Braveheart, for a late summer 2009 cria.

July 2009 Update:

Faith has given birth to a very fine and curly light fawn cria.  It's a girl!  We named her Mariella, and we are pleased to announce that she is a real beauty.  Quite a testimony to our herdsire Braveheart's ability to pass on his blue-ribbon attributes to his offspring.

Faith is now bred to black point grey herdsire Crescent Moon's Ante Up, from Graceland Farms Alpacas.

August, 2010 update:  Faith has given birth to a strapping, true black son.  We named him Sentry, for his watchful, proud stance.  

Faith has been bred to our silver gray herdsire, Ikon, for a Summer 2011 birth.  The combined genetics of these fine alpacas hold great promise for a notable offspring.... gray, perhaps?

July 23, 2011:  Blazing Heat has arrived!  He is true black, with outstanding presence and conformation.  He is picked out by visitors for his regal stance and beautiful face.  Not surprising, since Faith is so attractive!

Faith has been bred to Mighty Fine Finnegan, who has been producing some really fine offspring.  Her cria is due midsummer, 2012.
