Roderigo means "notable leader," and that's what we are hoping for in this guy's future.  Multiple award winning  herdsire Riddick from Spruce Ridge Farm and our girl Ginger Spice have produced a great cria.  Rich mahogany in color, he is unlike any other alpaca in our pasture. With his heavy "eyebrows," Roderigo gives a serious appearance, but he is just the opposite.  Frisky and friendly, he loves to charge through groups of alpacas looking for other crias to romp with.  Roderigo is developing nicely, and we are excited about his potential.
