Lola Falana was the kind of foundation girl that puts her all into producing award-winning cria. She was the daughter of an award winning grey sire, the mother of award winning crias, and a consistent and easy breeder. She would carry her pregnancies with consistently unassisted births. Her crias are healthy, calm, and independent. So much so, that we have decided to retire her from breeding until her eventual passing on our farm. One of our first alpacas, we appreciate all she did for us. We ...

Details
Rose is a beautiful uniform medium rose grey with lighter heathered legs and a white face and tuxedo marking. She has full leg and face coverage with captivating 'movie star' dark eyes combined with adorable fuzzy ears.

Her crimp is consistent from head to tail, high frequency with medium amplitude and high luster. The handle and luster of her fiber shows the uniformity of micron and lack of medulation. More than one judge noted her consistency in micron and crimp style between white, brown, and black fibers. In compliment to her fantastic density, her regrowth is still nice despite being a breeding dam. With her dense fleece she really packs on the fiber. This is not surprising with a Lola and Kanaka pairing. This girl is out of one of our original foundation females, Lola, dam of several ribbon winning cria, and sired by multiple champion Kanaka - son of grey champion Avatar.

Rose showed five times as a weanling and young yearling, with the first time at just over 6 months, and each judge praised her density, crimp, fineness and uniformity -- difficult to active in a grey having all three colors (white, brown, and black) in her fiber. She secured Reserve Champion three times among impressive competition and judged by several different notable judges. Her impressive show record demonstrates her consistent, quality fiber and conformation and stands as testimony of her value.

To compliment and amplify her fiber qualities, we chose the exemplary Snowmass Enlightenment for her first service sire. With her straight conformation, independent but easy personality, dam's easy birthing history, Rosie promises is a wonderful foundation dam. She produced an elegant, regal male that looks just like her! Longbow secured his own wins and is now producing his own fantastic crias.

Bred to the note-worthy Patagonia's Lennox, Rosie produced a spectacular MB male, Smokejumper, who won several blue ribbons and banners in his maturity with lingering fineness that won halter and fleece champion banners, fleece Spirit of the Industry banners and even Judge's Choice!

From the incomparable Annual's Bea-2 Bomber, Rose produced a stunning LRG boy that we named Dauntless. He has taken home a slew of blue and purple ribbons and has produced lovely black, dark brown, and grey crias for us.

Her 2019 cria with Secret was a CMSG brother to our 13x black champion herdsire, Maelstrom. Daedulus looked awesome but this special boy's show career was a 'victim' of our 2019 focus on our boys' 4H sheep program and the 2020's COVID-19 restrictions. We were happy to find him the right home instead.

In 2020, Rose finally graced us with a girl! This classic MRG girl looked just liked her and we were jumping in joy. Tragically, she had aspirated a little and seemed fine until the next day when she suffered respiratory distress and died suddenly. Forlorn, we have bred Rose back to Maelstrom in hopes lightening will strike twice in one place!
