On Annie's sire's side her pedigree includes: Show Me the Money, Royal Fawn and 5Peruvian Valeroso. Her dam's side includes: 4Peruvian Ricura (comes from the Sollocota Region and had a 19.3 AFD at 3 yrs of age). Annie's great grandfather is 4Peruvian Legacy.
Annie has a rich dark fawn fleece with a long staple length, nice handle, good bundle structure, and brightness, but her fleece is not exceptionally fine. Her microns go lower when she is pregnant. She lets the sire's fleece characteristics come through to the cria. Her 2014 and 2015 raw fleeces were recently bought by a hand spinner who is planning to make shaws out of her fiber due to the lovely caramelly color and soft handle.
Annie is of average weight and size and has excellent conformation. She has a long body with straight legs and balanced neck and head proportions. Her ears and tail are straight. She has a body score of 5 out of 5.
Annie is a very good mother with plenty of milk. She has no problems giving birth. If you have a good sire to breed to her, you will get a wonderful cria. Her 2009 cria was a spitting image of her sire. Annie is not currently bred. We are planning to breed her this year to StoneWall, or any herdsire on our farm, of the buyer's choice. Annie is an excellent mother, but due to space on our ranch, we have not bred her since her 2009 cria. She is very attentive, nurturing and bonds with her cria very quickly. Her only cria is Dorothy of OZ/DOB: 5/3/2009 a solid light fawn female, won 4th place in fleece, at the AOBA National Show in 2011.
Annie is halter trained and handles very well, but is on the shy side personality wise. She is a bit standoffish with both fellow alpacas and humans. She likes to stand back and see what is going on and overall is a bit of a worrier. She tends to cush if she feels pushed into doing something and sometimes gets scared. We handle her with a loose lead and don't rush her. Annie needs someone who will take their time with her and be patient.
Annie is truly a lovely animal, but has never been shown.
With her great genetics, fleece, and mothering skills, Annie would be a wonderful addition to any small farm.
