ASPENALPACAS EARL GREY

AspenAlpacas Earl Grey is an exceptional grey herdsire. Alpaca Country Estates is excited to add him to our breeding program. He stands out with his statuesque silhouette, proud presence, and gorgeous phenotype. He comes by this naturally from breeding two multi-champions. Earl Grey has his sire's outstanding coverage, large bone, and macho, wedge shaped full head, and stunning classic dark silver-grey color.

Not only are his dam and sire champions, all of his grandparents are champions as well! His paternal grandsire is Jerimiah’s Qualtrain and five-time champion grey. This makes for an impressive pedigree that boasts of Majestic Peruvian Jerimiah, MFI Peruvian Jericho, HA Shades of Grey, Peruvian Presidio, PPPeruvian Augusto, 4Peruvian Legacy, Augusto, Cochiti, Caligula, and Victor! Unfortunately, the covid pandemic limited Earl Grey’s show career.

Earl Grey has a beautiful handling fleece in a uniform dark silver-grey color. The color is uniform across his body. The micron range is uniform between his white and black fibers. His first histogram displayed a 17.2 micron, 4.4 standard deviation, and 2.2% over thirty micron. He also carries a very long staple length. The crimp is consistent across his blanket and has a high frequency. The fleece shows great brightness with an excellent degree of density.

He has already displayed his ability to pass these traits onto his offspring. A medium grey cria placed 2nd at the 2023 CABA halter show at only six months and five days old! With 12 cria on the ground, 11 are black or grey and the dams vary from grey to white! With this pedigree, show records, fleece traits, and progeny, what's not to like?

Aspen Alpacas Earl Grey is currently standing stud at Alpaca Country Estates. Co-owned with Stan and Mary Miller of Aspen Alpacas.

PATAGONIA'S EL GALAN

 4 x Color Champion!

 

Patagonia’s El Galan has an elegant, soft handle, buttery fleece, and is a strong-boned pure white herdsire that has recently had drop dead crias hit the ground. It is nice to finally select the right breedings for this magnificent male to see his full potential as a sire of champions.

El Galan’s dam, Patagonia’s Fantasma, has a show record of her own, and is on our foundation herd. El Galan has a nice stature, very crimpy fleece that is remaining soft, bright, and silky. This sire is definitely passing on these wonderful characteristics to his progeny with bundling, beautiful structure, uniformity of micron count and color in their fleece, adding dense, dense fleece and staple length. During the 2017 show season, his stunning juvenile crias have received Color Champion, Reserve Champion, and Blue and Red ribbons.
