Alexa is recently purchased to add to our foundation herd of females with exceptional EPDs and the potential to produce color. Alexa is in the top 1% of ARI EPD Club and database insuring she will improve fiber finess in her offspring. The most important reason for our adding Alexa to our foundation herd is her SL and Fiber weight EPDs are outstanding. She has a 0.24 FW EPD producing offspring with improved fiber weight. She has the ideal EPD picture, top rankings in AFD to produce finess in offspring, but will also increase fiber weight, staple length. We have breed her this spring to Bogart, a pairing that should produce an exceptional EPD endowed offspring.
This genetically gifted dam is out of a true black so we will be breeding this girl to a gifted black EPD stud and add some color to our EPD breeding program. She is presently bred to Bogart so a white or light fawn cria will have incredible EPDs. This young dam is in the top 1% club for ARI in three fiber traits.

Athena is presently being bred to the 2016 Futurity Highest selling alpaca Majestic Meadow's A Wanted MAN. This herdsire is out of Majestic's herdsire of the year, Jumanji. We are very excited for Athena.
This is our first female cria out of MSA Hemingway's Bogart. Athena is out of Alexa, who we purchased for her world class EPD for fineness and Staple Length. The pairing with Bogart has proved to give Athena EPDs that are some of the best in the world. Athena lineage is the "whose who" in genetics. Her mother Alexa, is out of the late El Bello. Bogart and El Bello may be considered two of the most prolific and gifted breeding male studmasters. Athena should also prove to be an award winner in the show ring, but more importantly she could be the foundation female another breeder could use to integrate a line of alpacas with world class fiber. Athena was born running, she is very athletic, of good bone mass, and even at birth her conformation was ideal. Athena has greatness in her future as a foundation female. She would be an asset to improve any herd.
We at Colusa Riverside feel honored to be able to continue the stud service of this renowned Herdsire Bogart. We are grateful to be able to directly integrate 1st generation Hemingway genetics into our own herd. He is in the nation's 1% ranking for a number of fiber traits. Athena would also make an outstanding embryo transfer candidate. Her mother Alexa, has been a wonderful dam, with easy births and healthy crias.
Athena will remain a foundation female for Colusa Riverside unless the buyer comes with an offer we could not refuse. Athena is that valuable as a production dam. Take a look at her EPDs, they are exemplary in 3 traits and overall outstanding in every trait. She has no one trait that diminishes her genetic worthiness as a breeding dam. Athena has the ideal combination of fineness and increased fiber weight.
