HERD DISPERSAL UPDATE: Friday has been our best producer and has earned her retirement! She is content to be spoiled rotten and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Friday, who is affectionately called “Old Lady”, has never known a stranger. She is friendly and an easy keeper! Friday is also an exceptional PR alpaca. She adores treats and having her chin scratched. We are looking for a good home for Friday where she can live out the rest of her days in luxury. We wish for someone to love and care for her as much as we do. She is truly a wonderful alpaca!
Our favorite "older" girl in our herd, Sweet Friday, was born on Friday the 13th, but is not bad luck at all! Sweet Friday lives up to her name, and has been consistently producing great-looking, quality crias. She is a well proven, terrific dam with an excellent supply of colostrum and milk--a heritable trait she's passed on to her daughters.
Friday is a daughter of the renowned Pperuvian Felix. From Estancia Accoyo of Peru, Felix was one of the elite group of males imported in 1994 that included Caligula, Victor, Timoteo, Vengador, Leon, Terror, Camilio, and Pluro.
Sweet Friday produced outstanding cria for us each year. She gave birth in 2007, to a beautiful, solid bay black female named "Caterina." Caterina was sired by Aussie Colorado Dillinger, a Pperuvian Caligula grandson. Caterina has fantastic fleece and outstanding conformation, and has won ribbons in the show ring in competitive classes.
Sweet Friday gave birth in 2008 to a 1/2 Accoyo, rose grey girl out of Mr. Lincoln, a Pperuvian Timoteo son. This cute, friendly little girl named "Rosie" (Rosalind Franklin) has the same cuddly personality as mom, and has become a farm favorite.
Friday gave birth in 2009 to her third female in a row, a beautiful light fawn female with light vicuna-pattern shading! Named "Christianne," she is a full sister to Friday's 2008 cria Rosie.
In spring 2011 Friday gave us a boy for the first time, a 1/2 Accoyo brown cria named Percy out of our Gregor Mendel. He was one of the most mischievous cria we've ever had on the farm; he has been sold as a pet.
In 2012 Friday gave birth to a cute grey boy with both personality and promise named 'Gus.' Gus, listed under his own page on this site. She followed this up in 2014 giving birth to another grey boy name 'Pierre' out of our outstanding stud MFI Toledo.
Friday is a smart, experienced dam with great mothering skills. She is now retired because of her age and her difficulty in holding her weight while nursing.
