It is a shame that our alpaca color chart does not permit us to register a maroon animal for the color they represent. Any astute breeder for the elusive gray market can tell you, there is something awfully nice about maroon. Well, with that in mind, here is my fashion plate, Diana. And does she have a colorful pedigree, reaching back three generations. A true maroon with white face and "roaning" on her belly, Diana has produced two silver gray females in a row. This year, Diana had an El Toro cria we named Dusty. Dusty is covered with an abundance of extremely fine medium fawn fleece that is showing very nice crimp and brightness at the skin. She looks a lot like her dam facially, except she is dark eyed. Despite the fact that Diana had a uterine infection when Dusty was born, she managed to impart enough colostrum to Dusty to produce an above 3000 IgG, so this is one amazingly wonderful mom. For those genetically inclined, Diana has been called a "poorly expressed gray" and, given her ability to produce gray, we tend to agree.

We like to tailor financing to meet the needs of our clients, so we do not have set terms. Everyone has a different set of parameters, just as they do different goals, so a 'one size fits all' approach just makes no sense when talking financing terms.
