FEMALE PACKAGES (some include males)
Pkg A - 2 Proven Dams, 1 Maiden with  Dam/Granddam Bonus! - $2,500
Hyppolyta Open ARI#31358484 Black  "Lyta," the dam, was named after an Amazon queen when she was born 4/08 and is a black beauty, bold, straight with perfect carriage and is the result of a breeding of Kara of Redwood Ridge  to Prince Charming ARI #842410. He is beige with very dense fleece. 10/14/12 She birthed a female cria, Mariposa (Not yet registered).   Light Golden Rose Rely haps...whatever, she is as cue as can be. The female Lyta birthed  is out of Claim Jumper, an AMC herdsire. (Location: AMC, NV)
Calypso De Soragon Open ARI #1209570 White and Black Pinto Huacaya with Blue Eyes DOB: 5/5/05 Sire: Canzelle's Chaka Dam: Luna of Redwood Ridge A very sweet female, but when she is pregnant she becomes rather shy. Her blanket is all black with a nice feel as she inherited the fineness of her dam. (Location: AMC, NV)
Kara of Redwood Ridge OPEN ARI #833988Offered here as a companion animal and part of the package with her daughter, "Lyta," Lyta and Kara are practically inseparable, as evidenced in this photo, and she is included as a fiber/companion female with no fertility guarantee.(Location: AMC, NV)
Pkg. B - 1 Maiden Fawn Females & 1 Proven Dam - $1750
Inara Open ARI #31779791 Light Fawn Huacaya Female DOB 7/8/09 Sire: El Magnifico Dam: Beatrice This young female has always been beautiful and full of fleece, beginning on day one. Her color is magnificent and she has great bone and is very robust. As Paul would say "just a big, happy kid." (Location: AMC, NV) (Ask for individual price)
Beatrice de Soragon Open ARI #1401349 Light Brown Huacaya Female DOB: 9/10/04  Beatrice is a bold, large female like her dam, Kara, and her sire MFI Peruvian Valiant and both of her offspring have been good sized. She is a bit of a ham when it comes to a camera! She and El Magnifico are on a roll, and we would suggest another repeat of this breeding. (Location: AMC , NV)

VF  Queen of Sheba Open  True Black Huacaya  Female  
DOB  9/17/10  Dam: 6P Jasmine  Sire: A&A;s Bermuda Blue    If you are looking for black, then Sheba and her male might be just the ticket.    Sheba gave birth to Sherpa (out of Shaq Attack, a true black) on 10/2/14, making him the youngest on the ranch.  Sheba  was absolutely a wonderful first time Mom and we think she has very good future potential.
Sherpa is a scamp, as "the baby" in any group tends to be!   He is often the firs alpaca I see in the morning and he is one to bring a smile to your face.

Gingersnap  Maiden Fawn Hucaaya Female

Blue Agave  Maiden   White  Huacaya Female

Born on Cinco de Mayo, this little cocktail has great bloodlines and is quite a personality pistol...she is very friendly.   Dense fleece, great head and conformation.  She is quite possessive of your attention and the camera  Hard to ge a photo of her at any distance.
