Billie Jean (FF Billie Jean)

Billie Jean was up nursing when she was discovered and then she was quickly named in honor of the late Michael Jackson, as she was born on the day of his passing... and she does love to “dance” in the paddock!

Billie Jean has some notables in her heritage (including Snowmass Legacy Gold and The Silversmith), and we expect great things from this beauty. Her fiber is luxuriously soft, and with two extremely dense parents, she should have an abundance of it.

Billie Jean’s dam and granddam have both produced plenty of milk, and exhibited strong maternal instincts and it's no surprise that Billie Jean is the same. She will be a sound addition to any herd.

Billie Jean is a very loving and caring alpaca, with her personality and with her mother skills. When she gave birth to her first cria in 2012, Estrada's Blaze, she did an amazing job! She had no difficulties and it was a smooth and quick birth. As soon as we dried Blaze off she was instantly humming to him and nibbling gently at his face. Blaze has amazing tight crimp that goes to the tip and great density.

FF Autumn Mist

 

ARI#: 30417250

Heritage: Peruvian, Bolivian and Chilean

Color: White

Autumn Mist is a nice pure white female who has been an excellent mother to all of her crias. She's one who will alert the herd if there is danger nearby and she absolutely loves to lay out in the sand to sun bathe!

Autumn Mist was born to Spring Hope with no fanfare or assistance. She has developed into a beautiful young female, with nice conformation, dense fiber with a soft hand, and a gentle, calm personality.

Misty looks exactly like her sire - very nice since she was his first cria! We are thrilled that Legacy Gold's Lucky 13 has passed his "Legacy" on to this beautiful female. Lucky's sire, Snowmass Legacy Gold, has won major awards at every level and at every stage of his development, including back-to-back Breed and Color Championships at the 1999 & 2000 Futurities in Oklahoma City, and numerous get-of-sire firsts. In February 2006 Legacy Gold was the highest priced male at The Making of Champions Private Selection Sale ($500,000).

With her sire's notable heritage, and her dam's strong maternal capabilities, we had high expectations for Misty's crias - AND SHE HAS LIVED UP TO OUR EXPECTATIONS. At 351 days she delivered her first cria with no assistance. This beautiful 17.5 pound fawn female, Billie Jean, looks just like her maternal grand-dam. Misty is a wonderful mother, with lots of milk and strong maternal instincts. She carefully watches her cria, and encourages them to nurse and stay close. Misty would be a great addition to your breeding herd.
