Lots of excitement here at Carrageen Suri Alpacas!
We had a very successful shearing on May 19th. Lots of people showed up to help and things went very smoothly. I'd like to thank Tom Monroe for being there when we needed him. Also I would like to thank my music students Dilyse, Maureen and Elizabeth from South Portland, Maine. They did a great job bagging!
On May 21 our Sweet Suri Ciara gave birth to a beautiful light fawn girl! Her name is Caralee. Her sire is SBS Accoyo Starcatcher. Wow.....is she beautiful. Fabulous luster and density. She looks to have very nice lock structure. And what energy! We have very high hopes for her.
Then on May 22 our Rose gave birth to a stunning medium fawn boy, Luken. His sire is Snowmass Silken Gold. This little guy is really something. His luster is amazing with very good density and coverage. Lock and twist is excellent. He and Caralee are quite the site to see running in the pasture!
Then......on June 9, our Jasmine gave birth to another Snowmass Silken Gold boy. We named him Alvino. When he stands in the in the sun, his white fleece just gleams! What a site he is. Great density and lock structure plus his luster makes this fellow one of our best.
We here at Carrageen Alpacas continue to work hard to improve our genetics and to breed alpacas that we are proud of. We love the challenges that comes with making our farm successful and being involved in such a wonderful industry.
