Elyse greeting a new Cria-cria of Fantazia

One of our favoiurite Peruvian girls that was originally been exported, Avonlea, had a female called Fantazia, Avonlea now is 16years+, and so although pregnant, we are lucky to have a female that we have not sold, to keep this fantastic line going. Avonlea has always produced stunning fleeces, and so when Fantazia was born, we knew our chances of getting another female from Avonlea was slim, so we made sure that Fantazia was not sold. Fantazia produced this gorgeous female last Monday morning, Fantasia. Her ears looks as though she is the flying nun, but they will firm up, in a couple of days, and so will her frontt legs, she is not 24 hours old at this stage. Elyse goes for a walk, and also spots one of our favourite alpaca at the moment, "Illustrious", Seductions male cria, who is destine to be a future herdsire at Mariah Hill. Anyone who has visited our farm, knows Seduction, she has beautiful soft handling very fine fleece. Elyse has just come bak from a gruelling trip from South Australia, and so she feels back at home with the alpacas, and checking out the babies.
