Studs for Hire
When we envisioned the future of our ranch in the fall of 2004, we set our focus on offering full services. That included quality bred alpacas, outstanding all-around herdsires for hire and 6 – 10 new cria born every year. We wanted to specialize in grey and also offer herdsires of all the other major color groups. In less than five years we accomplished that with the first cria born on our ranch from our own herdsires: Kazan, Geronimo and Dusty.
We quickly discovered that not all of our own “homebred” boys were going to make the grade on the quality we were looking for in our breeding program. (See the list of the fabulous fiber boys that we have available.) So we looked to other ranches to provide the quality genetics, confirmation and disposition of the herdsires we desired. Since we wanted to bring in a variety of colors we have added more exceptional studs to our breeding line up: Flash, Boscoe and Spinx. We also have 3 Jr. Herdsires to choose from: Durango, Silverado & Kommander.
Though we support Halter shows, we are not in a position, nor desire to travel the long distances to enter our “boys” in a variety of shows out of state. We do enter them in the local shows in CA & AZ. Instead we prepare their fleece and send it to Fleece shows and most recently “Spin-Offs” which are judged on how well the alpacas fleece spins into yarn. When you inquire about a certain “Stud”, ask to see the “Blue-ribbon” yarn and the written comments about his fleece.
