** Summer is part of our alpaca herd reduction sale as we start up our sheep programs. She is being sold open without warranties but is a proven dam and no known issues breeding, birthing or nursing when she was active. AOA certificate transfer as a breeder allowed at buyer cost. Transportation related costs are the buyer's costs. **

Summer has a easy personality and excellent mothering skills. Her heritage is filled with color, black and grey, as witnessed in the grey highlights at the edges of her lovely fleece. Her conformation is boxy and straight, well-balanced and strong, giving her an easy movement and confident stature.

With Summer's daughter and full sister in our foundation herd, the sons of her sister in our herdsire row and their offspring in our show string... it can be seen that we like these genetics. Now, you can benefit from this solid base of these robust bloodlines. She is a lovely daughter from our (still missed) Lola and the multiple champion Kanaka, which means her lineage boasts Felix, Rayo de Sol, Avatar among others.

Though Summer did not really get a chance at the show ring like her champion MRG full sister, she has a soft, fine fiber with high frequency crimp along her long staple and with good uniformity across her blanket. Her medium fawn, lustrous fiber is lovely to touch and spin!

Her first cria is an eye-catching true black girl, the daughter of the impressive Chase Tavern Juggernaut. She was born in the midst of our record breaking rainy season in Colorado that year (that led to the 500-yr floods in northern Colorado). We found this cria sitting in a puddle in the down-pouring rain under the run-off from the barn overhanging pouring over her head! Struggling against the confines of the towels while being dried off and warmed up, she quickly got her feet under her and really took off. The little cria was all energy and spunk, jumping and running everywhere! We couldn't help but think of her as a little imp. So, we named her Water Sprite! Sprite is so curious and friendly that she trots up to us each time we enter the paddock to see us.

Circumstances and timing prevented us from breeding Summer. So, we were happy to finally breed Summer again, this time to our Futurity & GWAS reserve champion stud, Major General -- a Patagonia's Ernesto son that is packing on the fiber! We secretly hoped for a rose grey cria, tapping into both her and his latent grey genes, but we were excited to produce a lovely dark maroon / bay black girl that combines these two alpacas' fiber and frame. Carmine is soooo soft and silky, that she has been described as the Velveteen Rabbit. Carmine is now bred for her own cria.

Summer was bred to the one and only Matrix for a special cria this year that we unfortunately lost before birth.
