As you can see, Aurora brings a blend of genetics like no other. From the rare and elite Canadian genetics on top, to MFI Brock and his lineup including the US classics Augusto, Leon, and Guido below. Aurora is a masterpiece of genetic planning. She was born to Augusta at Lavender Fields in Colorado, before coming to Texas. We saw a few photos of her right after the birth, and knew we had to take the trip. We met them both when Aurora was only three weeks old, and were astonished at what we saw (photo below).
Our very first white alpaca, and a beautiful female at that! She had a very distinctive head, which was a gift from both parents, wonderfully soft and dense fiber with serious character, and very strong conformation, even as a cria. She looked like what we wanted our breeding program to produce every time. We were very happy with this acquisition and birth, and our cheeks were sore from all the smiling during that trip.
Since arriving in Texas, we are certain Aurora thinks she lives in an oven, now. Aurora has given us wonderful crias, and is a very good match for our Snowmass Matrix Freedom. Aurora is currently open.
I can't imagine our herd without her, but if pressed, I suppose I could put a price on her.
