Jeff Skinner and Shauna Brummet

Alpaca Farm Days was a great success!
What is Fiberrific Fleece? It's that bright, fine, soft and sumptuous fleece that you get when you have bred your finest animals using the scientific tools that are available: EPDs, histograms and skin biopsies. When you couple those tools with the knowledge you have gained over years of breeding, you will achieve some truly terrific fiber, which we like to call Fiberrific! Successful show results, excellent statistics and stunning crias help to confirm the degree of success you have achieved using Science and Experience.
The Dinnertime Parade of Females!
We had some great help and a lot of fun during tNational Alpaca Farm Days on September 27-28. We gave tours and had great conversation with quite a few visitors and had a farm store available. We even made the front page of the Wooster Daily Record. See the story and more photos here!
Shearing Day 2018 was a busy day, but with all hands on deck and expert shearers, we got the herd done in record time, including breaks and lunch! Visit our YouTube channel.
We have some exquisite herdsires! Breed to 6X Ch HobbyHorse Peruvian Midnight Cowboy - exquisite son of the late/great 7X Ch SA Peruvian Black Epic (one of our foundation herdsires.) Cowboy is coal black, dense, and typey. He is making outstanding crias for us. We bought back 12-year-old Cowboy from his owners - that Black Epic line still cannot be beat for true, blue-black!
Or, grab the opportunity to breed to ultra-dense Snowmass Shogun Legend - a grandson of both Accoyo America Shogun and Snowmass Elite Legend. Shogun sheared the heaviest skirted fleece at Snowmass in 2019. We brought him in for his density and long-staple length. Outstanding type, too!.
