Immortal Beloved and Caesar join our herd

Caesar and Immy

Caesar and Immy

Early on I had my eye on several grey suris and had decided when we started breeding that I wanted to focus on producing grey alpacas. I've never been one to shy away from a challenge like breeding for grey. So we had been keeping an eye out for grey suris and suris with grey genetics hoping the right opportunity would come our way.

In early Jan we met Don & Tracy Pellegrino of Faith and Fleece Alpacas. When I talked with Tracy on the phone and realized the Rose Grey boy they were selling was sired by Amerpaca's Jacques. It sounded too good to be true, so the following weekend we hooked up the horse trailer and headed down to Upland to meet Don, Tracy and their herd. Don and Tracy were two of the nicest people we have met and were very willing to share their experiences.

Immortal Beloved (Immy) and her cria Caesar were just adorable. Caesar was exactly what we were looking for in a future herd sire. While we were there we were also introduced to some lovely grey/silver crias that were for sale with their moms. (Oh boy, I'm in trouble now!)

Immy and Caesar came home with us and our little herd when from 2 to 4. Papa and Sofia were a bit shocked with a "You brought what home?" look on their faces. Everyone settled it within minimal drama.
