On Saturday Jim found this little beauty on his way to the barn. She is the third true black SCA Peruvian Magnum daughter we have had born here on the farm. When Magnum adds his phenomenal fleece to this color – look out!
Bella (the alpaca momma) produces wonderful black or grey cria for us every year. She’s a super mom plus her fleece has the finest handle next to Magnum on the farm, even though she’s over ten years old!
The majority of our herd at Fairhope Alpacas is white and fawn so seeing the black baby in the field is a happy addition. The more I build the fiber side of our business the more I realize we need some more black alpacas. People love black alpaca!
If you like this little girl, you might also want to see her true black half sister, Black Pearl in the Fall 2011 cria class.
