The General

The GeneralThe General(black-huacaya) A rare alpaca! The General is a true black (500 TB). More importantly, he consistently produces babies that are true blacks (75% of his babies are true blacks). The General entered the U.S. in 1998 during the most rigid period of screening standards. He is conformationally flawless, compact, and athletic. Though he is a huacaya, his fiber is as lustrous as an ideal suri. He has 23 micron fleece and is a potent breeder.

Shauncey of Bolivia B8456

Shauncey of Bolivia B8456(huacaya) This 4 year old male is a perfect phenotype and an outcross to all bloodlines in California. He is a 100% Bolivian huacaya. Shauncey is structurally flawless, possesses perfect dentition, has above average testicular development, and is proud with tremendous presence. Shauncey is a compact animal standing 34 inches at the withers. He has short triangular muzzle and beautiful head. His fiber is very dense and his micron count at 4 years old is 19.4, with a low standard deviation (3.5), and only 1.1% over 30 microns. He has tremendous coverage and is a good breeder with a manageable disposition. His offspring are predominantly reds, browns, and fawns.


BD Guinness

BD GuinnessBD Guinness(DC Dark Coffee - suri) Guinness (Reg #834382) is a gentle suri male, with very good conformation and a lustrous deep brown/black coat. Guinness was imported from Bolivia in 1998 as a small cria. His mother, Pucathrihue (Reg # 834382) is a structurally perfect chocolate colored (LC Coffee/Brown) suri, who has produced only suri offspring. Guinness is small (120 lbs), but potent. In his first two breedings both females were impregnated in the first or second try. Guinness's coat and lock structure are impressive. His coat is very lustrous. Guinness has wonderful disposition, which we hope will be passed onto his offspring.

BD McCloud A9708

BD McCloud A9708(silver-gray -huacaya) McCloud is a superb silver male with four generations of silver grandparents on his mother's side. He is the third cria from Nosie, Bonny Doon's amazing silver female with a micron count of 18.8 at six years of age. It is difficult to find silver animals with exquisite fleeces. As a tui his average micron diameter is 19.8 with a s.d. of 3.9 and a C.V. of 19.7. He's competitive with the best South American animals which is doubly impressive when considering McCloud was raised on high protein hays that should've coarsened his fleece. Better yet his father is McGregor whose yield was 10 lbs at his first shearing. McCloud also inherited both his mother's and father's faultless structural quality.

BD McDuff

BD McDuff(rose gray-huacaya) Five year old male with exceptional handle and fineness. McDuff has perfect structure and an incredibly fine and even coat.

His mother, BD Posie's Nosegay W974 (silver gray), had a histogram of l9.8 at six years of age. McDuff's histogram, when he was a tui (before first shearing), was 19.5 with a standard deviation of 3.8. McDuff's lineage is entirely gray or rose gray on his mother's side (four generations). His grandfather is The Silversmith HST G452, perhaps the best known silver stud in the US during the late l980s and early 90s. His father is BD McGregor G566, who is one of Bonny Doon's most productive and best studs. Both of McDuff's brother's, McDoodle (fawn;20 microns; 4.6 sd) and McCloud (silver grey;19 microns: 3.9 sd) are  exceptional animals and stud quality. McDuff, his bloodline, and his siblings make him very convincing.

NZ Caithness Dundee 157

NZ Caithness Dundee 157(huacaya) This is among the best alpacas ever to come from New Zealand. Dundee is a large, strong animal with a perfect conformation and bite.

His fiber has a standard deviation of 4.1 with a very favorable coefficient of variation of only 16.9. His last histogram (2.5 years) had his microns at 24. His volume and evenness compensates favorably against the rare 18-20 micron animal that usually is hard pressed to produce half as much fleece in the same time period. Dundee is proud and a potent breeder with many outstanding offspring. He's an outcross to everything in North America, except his offspring. Dundee is owned by Eric Hoffman, John and Barbara Chase, and Wayne and Eileen Ausland. If you want volume and conformation you can't lose with Dundee.
