Val impressed the judges and competition in her first show, placing 2nd out of 7 but being named the finest in the class by the judge!
She is an excellent mom, attentive, birthing and breeding easily, and nursing well.
Her first pairing was to Rembrandt at the Flying Dutchman Alpacas in Oregon and she produced a bright white and shiny white boy that we cleverly named 'Man in Armour'! This boy had the looks of a Greek god (or a knight in a painting ;) ), and is very fine, dense, and very bright. As she did in her youth, Armour had a lovely fine, crimpy, dense, long fiber that was a pleasure to spin into next-to-skin yarn. He was sold to another farm as a junior herdsire.
Her pairing to our Supermassive produced a white boy that was rock solid and energetic. Even at birth, he had tiny little microbundles in his developing fleece! As the summer progressed, we watched this male bloom and his fiber was fantastic! He drew your eyes from the across the paddock. We kept him but then moved away from breeding for white and lights so he never got the work he should have.
Then, we couldn't help it, we loved the look of Superluminal so we repeated her breeding to Supermassive for a full sister to Superluminal! Love the look of this beautiful white girl, Vanora, and are seriously considering breeding her to dark coloration when she comes of age. This girl grew fast on her dam's abundant milk!
We started breeding late and Val slipped her breeding but it is late October and we just don't breed this late in the year. This is your opportunity! We have to reduce numbers so we are pricing her way low since she is not bred and is being sold open. With her proven history (we are keeping her 2022 girl) and at this ridiculously low price, she doesn't come with breeding warranty. But with her breeding in our last cycle (we didn't breed last year), we have no reason to suspect that she will have issues.
Val is an easy keeper and a proven dam and excellent pedigree. She doesn't deserve to be sold low but we are looking to reduce our herdsize. At this price, we are hoping that she will go to another great breeding program as she deserves.
