Patriot's Promise is our son's first alpaca! :) As a newborn she had gotten herself wedged behind a wall, and Connor was persistent and finding out what that noise was! When he quickly discovered that it was a cria, we were able to get her out in time so that she suffered no health or medical issues! She just went right to nursing and has taken off since. Connor's first alpaca was then a girl (instead of the expected pick of the boys). So, he is set on building his own herd!

Patriot's Promise was named as such for several reasons. The Patriot in her name not only ties her to her proud sire's name, but also conveys our pride in our country and its soldiers. The Promise represents our commitment to our farm values and the alpaca community, as well as to our son and his goals. Of course, her name also gives clue to her purpose as one of the foundations of Connor's herd, her promise to build his very own show string and fiber herd!

Promise has great confirmation and looks. With her friendly and inquisitive nature, she always draws the onlookers among visitors. She carries herself with pride, alert and erect, on a balanced frame that is solid and proportional. Her fiber is a rich, deep chocolatey-black, offset by black legs and a black face that is set with deep black eyes. Her fiber staple is long, with a bright shine and a soft handle. Her crimp style is medium amplitude with medium frequency.

Promise lived up to her name -- she gave Connor another beautiful girl on 07/09/14! This cria by Sunset Hill's Golden Thunder at Snow Diamond Alpacas is very nice; Connor named her "Navy Rumble" -- a distinctly memorable name. Navy has very nice fineness and uniformity and ratio of micron. She is going to produce a nice offspring for Connor. At four years old, Navy still has 18 micron fleece!

Next, Promise produced a medium fawn cria boy sired by the indomitable Rembrandt -- who has mastered lasting fineness and crimp. We hoped for color and got it in our medium fawn AutumnSun's American Lancer. Lancer had spots of color that detracted from his show career (the famous Accoyo spot genetics from his sire) but had wonderful character and definition -- this boy is very nice and did well in the ring despite that!

Promise has produced a typey dark fawn male, from our very own stylish Orionn, who has lots of coverage and crimpy style. An even dark fawn, Betelgeuse was well received for his uniformity, softness, staple and handle. He too as an amazingly lingering fineness! His challenge was that he was competing at the same classes as Val d'Sere and Mucho Macho, so often he was 3rd.

Now, Promise has produced what may be one of the best black females born on our farm, sired by our 13x champion Maelstrom! She is not available at Promise's side, and Promise would need to stay until she is weaned.

Promise is available with a breeding to Maelstrom for a repeat!
