Keg El Peruvian Don Julio
ARI #: 1082272
Peruvian Powder: ARI# 800332
Cadenza: ARI# 808978
|A son of Powder and Grand-son of Don Julio,
Powder Keg (aka Curly) is Dark Fawn. He is 1/2 Rural Mucasani Alianza
, 3/4 Peruvian and 1/4 Chilian. This selective breeding of Alianza,
Peruvian and Chilean is an exciting blending of the best of all three.
Curly is exhibiting the fineness of the Rural Mucasani Alianza Line,
the density and crimp of the Peruvian and the low micron of the Chileans.
Curly started his show career with a 4th place at the 2004 AOBA National
Show! A pretty good start for a youngster! He has continued his show
career with the North American International Livestock Exhibition
in Louisville, KY and took a ribbon in a tough class, and will continue
his show career at the Kentucky Classic in Louisville, KY in 2005.
We are watching this little guy very closely for progress toward
Moses El Peruvian Powder,
ARI #: 1082265 (Power 800332 x Rosie 808977)
|Mo made his debut into the show circuit at the
2004 AOBA National Conference and took 6th place. He was in a white
class against the biggest farms in the United States, well, we think
you’ll agree this is pretty darn good for our farm and us small
Mo has a nice hind end and ample testicles for his age. It is easy
to forget to look at the back end of alpacas sometimes, but in males,
if they are too narrow the male will sometimes have a more difficult
time breeding females. So, we look at the hind ends of all males!
Mo has a nice one!
Testicle size is also important. As Dr. Pugh always puts it, “the
bigger the factory the more workers!” Mo is ample for his
age and we anticipate that he is going to have a larger than normal
He is conformationally correct and has abundant coverage. His fiber
is dense and uniform in its crimp and character. He is carrying
the fineness and handle of his daddy albeit is also carrying some
of the stronger fibers of his mom.
1/2 Rural Mucasani Alianza, 3/4 Peruvian, 1/4 Chilean. This is
a very strong combination of cross breeding!
There is no line-breeding or in-breeding at Crossroads Alpaca Farm,
LLC! We breed for the continued health and genetically diverse alpaca!

|Frenchie has exhibited presence since the day
he was born and is terrorizing the females with no remorse and no
regrets (even when he ends up green!). He is also THE most personable
alpaca we have ever encountered!!!!
Here’s what happened when
Frenchie was seven weeks old and he was watching Streak breed a
female in the next pen. Princess was ready and she didn’t
care if Frenchie was still too little. Frenchie didn’t care
if he was too little! He got on that’s all that mattered to
the little guy!
says Princess, I’m ready Frenchie, now turn around Honey”.
“Hey Streak, says Frenchie, “Umm, give me some pointers
here, is this how you started?” “I don’t seem
to fit as good as you do, are you too long or am I too short?”
every cria that is born on our farm, and after we got over the initial
WOW that’s the BEST CRIA EVER BORN IN THE WORLD syndrome and
started to take a practical business and critical breeding look
at the crias born on our farm, there are some that truly do exhibit
that “herdsire wanna be quality”. We’re watching
Frenchie real close.
Frenchie took 2nd place at his debut in the showring at the 2004
North American International Livestock Exhibition!
