A big thank you to our friends, Melissa and Ben Augustyn at Augustyn Acres for sharing this cute picture of their cria sired by our herdsire SCA Peruvian Shawnee. “Zowie!” Look at the legs on this little guy, they look like tree trunks.
Shawnee is an AOBA and a Futurity Champion. We haven’t used him as much because he is from the same Misty Maiden line as our main herdsire, SCA Peruvian Magnum. Magnum is older and we have tended to want to breed almost the entire herd to Magnum in the past couple of years. But after seeing what Shawnee has produced, we have got to give the boy more work.
Shawnee has been improving females by several generations. What he has done with average females has been no less than astounding. He has great conformation, bone, density, with exceptional fleece characteristics. Shawnee does extreme upgrades and he can put that “showring” look on an alpaca cria that is priceless to breeders these days.
Shawnee also has rich color genetics and sometimes throws patterns, which can lead to exciting results. Contact us for more information about special Fall breeding rates to Shawnee or any of our other herdsires at Fairhope Alpacas.
