Jewel is a planned fusion of 3 Generations of Birchleaf Champions. With their ancestry's going back to HCLA Bolivian Iceman, Jolimont Peruvian Alpamayo, PPeruvian Guellermo, Victor's Vaccoyo,and PPeruvian Aldo. Jewel's presence, fibre, conformation and show ring stance are a reflection of the genes she carries. We've been patiently waiting for this elite female. We sent out a fibre sample in Dec/09 and are very pleased with the results (shown) Jewels fleece character is very consistant carrying the structure down her side and into her neck and upper legs. She's a large female with solid bone.
-BIRTH ANNOUCEMENT- Jewel gave birth to our first MMR Ascott male cria, in 2012. A robust, elite fleeced Champion in the making, looks just like Daddy. He's growing nicely and is very correct in confomation.
2013 Jewels has delivered a very nice white, Shamar female.
We are very happy to have made a deal with Eagle Creek Alpacas for this elite young Macho. We were looking to get another Sire with HCL Bolivian Iceman genetics and got a bonus with, Acero Marka's El Alto, ARA Mario, Acero Marka's Oliver and Acero Marka's Bobby all in one. His Dam: EC Natasha Ice won Multiple Championjships including Supreme's. His Sire: ARA Mario is known for throwing fine, high density offspring. Shamar's micron at first shearing was 16.1 and is extremely bright with well defined crimp style and alignment fibres. We are thrilled to be introducing him into our ever evolving herd.
We will retire Shamar from the showring after Farm and Ranch 2013. he has proven his ability to retain his elite fleece on a robust frame.
