More exciting cria
September 26th, 2011 by Julie

My favorite colour for suris is mahogany brown – a deep dark brown with red, and sometimes purple, overtones. Gorgeous – I’d have a paddock full of them if I could work out how to make them!!

This is a lovely female born today to Baarrooka Queen Wihelmina and Moon River’s Peruvian Durango.  She looks like her grand-daddy Macgyver.

Appaloosa at Last!
September 24th, 2011 by Julie

Our beautiful grey appaloosa female, Lequoia Rose has finally given us an appaloosa cria.  Lequoia Rose was purchased from the US with a black female cria at foot by brown suri champion Saber and was remated to Saber, producing a brown female last year.  We ETed her with black male Ultimate Black with the result being a dark brown male and medium fawn female.  All progeny have been solid colours, with nary a spot to be seen.  After Ultimate Black and Gray Knight turned their noses up at her, Lequoia Rose was mated to white full Accoyo male Rockefeller and this week came up with the prize – a grey appaloosa female. Yippee!


First Kingsford cria!
August 6th, 2011 by Julie

My first cria from one of black imports, Kingsford, has arrived and he is lovely!  One of 3 ET cria from Kingsford and Baarrooka Topnotch, these are the only pregnancies we had before he went off to Western Australia for a year.

If this is an indication of what he produces, I can’t wait till we get him back!!

Autumn Crias
June 12th, 2011 by Julie

Well, we have finished up our autumn birthing season and, frankly, thank goodness!  There are about 70 of them. Luckily I instigated a system of ear tagging (with a very small, light tag) each cria as it hit the ground as they look VERY alike. In particular, I have a large bunch of dark fawn cria – mostly from Durango, but some from the black makes, that I would be hard pressed to tell apart if I didn’t have them tagged.

I am SO pleased with the entire drop.  I really would like to thank Patrick Dishaw from East River Alpacas in the US for the opportunity to purchase such a phenomenal stud male as Durango.  His cria are such a step up for coloured suris.  I just can’t wait for them to grow up, though who will cover all his daughters has me thinking hard.  I think Wild Card will my first choice, although this may be an opportunity to give some of the patient boys on stud row a chance to show me what they’ve got.  It’s all very exciting, I can tell you.

Here are some photos of the older cria – more photos coming soon.
