This girl is a lovely image of her sister, mom and dad. She has the same lustrous and soft fiber, great density and staple length, and shiny white glow to her fleece. Her crimp is as good or better than her sisters, pictured below. You love the feel of it in your hand.

True to Tira's offspring, she grew at an amazing pace, surpassing older crias -- as did Kimi-Sue, her older sister. She was born at ~22 lbs and 90 lbs at 9 months old. Her frame remains strong and straight. Her bite is good and her alignment correct. Her conformation shows no faults and her health has been robust. We would expect no less than these qualities from her dam and sire.

She has a sweet personality, a "must-have" in a good show and foundation girl! She 'hand leads' and is easily caught for any treatment, training, or the requisite fiber touching. She is calm and friendly like her dam and sire. We love this trait in our alpacas.

We matched her fantastic fiber characteristics with the color, density, and crimp of ribbon winning dark brown herdsire, QP's "Who's Your Daddy" for a cria with color & fiber quality and a loaded pedigree of bloodlines: Hemingway, Caligula, Monzon, Yupanqui, and Felix. Just was we hoped, she produced a true black little girl (AutumnSun's Sylvan Pixie) that is cute as a button.

Now that we knew she can throw color, we chose to pair her with beige Bandimere at Mile High Alpacas, but got color again! This fawn boy, born the day after the Fourth, is in one word: spectacular! We were not disappointed. We sit on our hands around him, to keep from touching his super dense, nubby fiber all the time! With a headstyle like his even as a cria, we could not help but call him Supermassive. This male represented us well, gathering his sharing of blue and purple ribbons and banners.

Then we bred Song to the fantastic Crescent Moon's Elizario (white) for our spectacular Melody, a girl of lots of density! Melody has been herself bred to 29x champion Motivator for a 2016 cria.

It was hard for us to give up her sister, Kimberely-Sue, and we think of her often. Mary cannot bear to part with all of Kimi-Sue's and Song's fleeces, or it would have sold very quickly already. So, it was a 'no-brainer' to match Song with Rumaki, and her fawn girl born in 2014 is the wonderful offspring! Aika is already well grown with lovely, soft glowing LF fiber with very long staple -- just like her half sister before her.

And, to round out this impressive list, Song has give us an amazing white girl this year, sired by Snowmass Belvedere. Wow is all we can say. Danica is a beauty!

Another white girl was in the cards for this 2017 birthing season! Eirwen is super dense with great crimp!
