Salutation is priceless. A beautiful large white female with ideal conformation that has had seven crias without difficulty. Number seven, by the famous Mr. Antonio, was born July 25, 2004. We named him Antonio's Alianza Salute. He won two blue ribbons in the show ring last spring. We'll let the results speak for themselves. We also own Sal's daughter, Salutation's Sunflower, and Sunflower had an El Moustachio cria in October of 2004. Sal's crias look like carbon copies of her, which is also ideal for a foundation dam. If you have an hembra like Salutation, then you know what she is worth to a breeding program.
I'm sure Sal's current cria from Bravado, Bravado's Alianza Sailor, born in August, will be a champion as well. Salutation is due for another Bravado cria in August. If this one is as good as the last two her price will go up again. Now is the time to get her and the next Bravado cria she produces at a bargain price.
An impressive Full Alianza Peruvian, Bravado is our foundation herdsire. This young guy is fineness personified in a perfect conformational package. And just look at the beautiful bundling in his fleece. He is the result of combining the finest and most proven Peruvian alpaca genetics in North America. Bravado's sire is Bueno, owned by Mike and Robin Tierney of Maplebrook Farm. You probably know what Bueno's stud fee is.
On the other side of his pedigree, Bravado's dam, NWA Ltd., Marcie contributes another line of proven superior genetics. Her sire was the world famous Hemingway and her dam is Macarena. That makes Marcie a full sister to well known sires Predictor, Hektor and Handsome.
Hemingway is known worldwide and Bueno has produced over 100 winning offspring to date, and we think Bravado is one of his best. We are certain that Bravado will go on to sire as many champions as his father, and one of them could belong to you! His crias have fantastic fleeces! But don
The focus at Sixth Day Farm has always been on developing a genetically predictable herd of alpacas with superior textile traits - alpacas that pay their way with the fiber they produce. As a working farm, showing and marketing have taken a back seat to alpaca care and genetic progress. This means that you will find tremendous value here for the price.
Yes, we should have more recent photos... Come and see her for yourself! Ask to see her 2012 cria sired by The Alianza Prophecy. He is AMAZING!
Saphire is a good-looking alpaca exhibiting all the hallmark's of quality: type, coverage, correct conformation, balanced proportions, and her fleece - fine, DENSE, exceptional staple length, with beautiful high-frequency 'zipper crimp'!!!
Sire - At eleven years of age, Bravado is still one of the most impressive alpacas I have ever seen: handsome, proud, correct, with a beautiful head, abundant coverage, and his fleece! This combination of fineness and density is rarely seen. High-frequency 'zipper crimp'. Consistently siring crias with the fine, bright, soft-as-silk fiber that lives up to all the hype about alpaca fiber.
PPP Salutation is the matriarch of one of our best female family lines. The overall qualiy is exceptional, with 'showy' crimp.
Bravdo's Saphire is a full Alianza female. She is a half sister to CHAMPION Antonio's Alianza Salute, and a full sister to CHAMPION Bravado's Alianza Sailor. If you have seen either of those males, nothing else need be said. And to continue the legacy, she now has a FULL ALIANZA male cria at side, Prophecy's Samir.
Previously, it had been decided that Sixth Day Farm could not afford to sell this girl at ANY price. Now being offered for the first time.
