Lydia Rose is 1/2 sister to LikaRose, Rosie's first cria. As was true of Lika, Lydie has exceptionally fine fiber with high frequency crimp, in addition to excellent density. Lydie's 2007 Micron Test from Yocom-McColl produced a MC of 17.8. Add OLiver's 16.6 to that and this cria should be unbelievable. Lydie has perfect conformation, pronounced presence and is also extremely typey. Lydie has all it takes to be a Great Production Female. Lydie had her first cria, Leah Rose on May 3rd, 2008. The cria is a beautiful LF. Lydie had an unassisted birth and is proving to be a natural mother, just like her wonderful mother Rosie, and her awesome grandmother Sugar Rose who is now a great grandmother for the 1st time. Sugar Rose is an import who started this elite female dynasty and the maternal instincts that are characteristic of the females who have her genetics. Lydie gave birth to her 2nd strong, healthy cria, another female, our 1st OLIVER CRIA, on May 21st. Again Lydie
~ OLIVER'S FIRST CRIA ARRIVED ON MAY 21ST!! ~ OLIVER'S LINDSEY ROSE OF SMKF is a very strong, healthy cria deserving of all the accolades previously used to describe her elite sire OLIVER! We knew we woudn't be disappointed. Our next milestone will be showing OLIVER'S LINDSEY ROSE in the Spring of 2010 - a long process, but well worth it! Oliver has been a VERY SPECIAL ALPACA since the day that he was born. The 2007 North America Alpaca Show confirmed this for us. Oliver took the Blue Ribbon in his White Male Juvi Class of 15 alpacas & then became the White Color Champion, with his sire Avalon's Peruvian Polaris, also in the Blue Ribbon Line-up for the Champion Class, looking on. It was one of many great moments for Sleeping Monk Farm. Oliver was never coupled for comparison with any other white alpaca at the show even in the Championship Class & now I know why: Jude Anderson stated that Oliver is "Spectacular." Kristin Burhman said "There was never any doubt" in referen
OLIVER'S LINDSEY ROSE IS AN EXCEPTIONAL ALPACA. All of the females out of our ROSE LINE are exceptional alpacas, maintaining lingering fineness while producing excellent offspring. OLIVER'S LINDSEY ROSE is no exception, but in addition to the HIGH QUALITY OF THE ROSE LINE, LINDSEY ALSO CARRIES THE ELITE GENETICS OF OLIVER! OLIVER'S LINDSEY ROSE has not come up short of our high expectations for her. She is amazing! She certainly shows what OLIVER is capable of producing. LINDSEY IS A SHOW QUALITY FEMALE. HER CRIMP CHARACTERISTICS, COVERAGE, BODY TYPE, DENSITY & CONFORMATION ARE ALL EXCELLENT & VERY TYPICAL OF ALL THE CRIA THAT WE ARE SEEING SIRED BY OUR AMAZING OLIVER. LINDSEY is a very personable alpaca who would be good on your farm if you have a young family. She is very easy to manage and she also loves to be patted. Visitors to our farm love her! LINDSEY is now ready to be bred. We would recommend either breeding her to ZACHARIAH, our Jeremiah son, or KANDOR, our True Black Champion out of the restricted genetics of CM Kryptonite.
LINDSEY is impressing us and our farm visitors more and more every day. Not only does she bring the elite genetics of OLIVER to the table, she also has a wonderful personality!
