Don't let Lapoudre's age or appearance fool you! This dam produces award winning cria, she is worth every bit of her price. Followill Lapoudre is a wonderful dam with 12 healthy cria to her worth as a dam, and all but one were females, all were solid colors. The latest 2013 & 2014 also are female. LaPoudre's cria are significantly improved with a good sire pairing. Poudre gives birth with ease, provides ample milk, and is a great mother. Poudres 2011 and 2010 crias was 3rd & 4th place ribbon winners in fawn & white juvenile female halter class in Gold Country Alpaca Show. At Gold Country 2014 her daughter took 1st in bred & owned. The most beneficial trait she provides in every cria is staple length. If you know EPDs, Poudre's EPD for staple length is plus 4.278, meaning she will put an extra 3 to 4 inches of fiber on her crias. Our offspring by her have born out this genetic prediction outcome with every offspring.

Avellana, which means "nut brown" is our new addition out of a foundation dam and a true black sire. She is out of Lassen View's Bortero, who is an old stud whose EPDs are one of the best in the nation for true blacks. Avellana mom Alexa has true black in her background and Alexa is by far one of our most gifted EPD foundation dams. So this little girl will become very important to a colored breeding program as we move into a line of color whose EPDs we can offer that few ranches can offer, dark colors with EPDs in the 1% Club. She was born big, well conformed and healthy.
It is rare to fine a true black with the kind of EPDs that are the same for those of white animals, but Bortero has those kinds of EPDs. Avellana's dam is out of the famous El Bello. Both he and Bogart are two of the most prolific herdsires out of Hemingway. Avellana has true black up and down on her lineage. She is bound at some point to give a true black cria.
We will continue to base our breeding decision with Avellana on EPDs and will in another year or so find that dark herdsire to match her genetic prowess. She is genetically superior for sure, but she is gorgeous as well. She is quite large, yet extremely feminine. She has her mother's feminine phenotype and beautiful face. Getting a girl out of this pairing is just what we were hoping to base our dark breeding program.
