Tess has been a wonderful dam for us since we bought her as part of our foundation herd in 2002. She usually gets pregnant on the first try, has trouble-free pregnancies and very easy births. Her cria are big and healthy, able to stand and nurse within an hour and gain weight steadily. On top of that, they all have great personalities and eye-catching good looks. If Tess sounds like the kind of production dam everyone dreams of owning, you may be wondering why we are selling her. In fact, we ve been asking that question ourselves! But the truth is, after producing some of our best alpacas, Tess bloodlines saturate our herd and we are now at the point where her daughters are starting their own breeding careers. Sadly, it is time for her to pass her wonderful genetics on to another lucky farm. Tess comes from strong grey and black lineages, including Wiki Wiki and SA Trinidad. In fact, four of her last six cria have been black and that's when bred to black, grey and white studs. She has also produced grey and brown. But no matter what their color, all Tess cria have great dispositions with loads of personality. Tess just gave birth to a crimpy, smoky brown male cria out of the incredible Igon and that gorgeous cria, Bolero, is included in her selling price. Igon s cria have started their show careers and are making a grand entrance, including Tess granddaughter, SRR s Star Rider, the 2007 HOV Color Champion!
