is a half-Peruvian,
curious, friendly crimp machine, with beautiful bright fiber, strong,
straight conformation and a lovely head. Her dam, Evelyn, is the
true maroon daughter of two maroon parents, with beautiful crimp, great staple length
and excellent mothering abilities. Gentle, easy-going and affectionate,
Evelyn produces ample milk of high quality - Kyra's IgG was 2900! Kyra's
sire is the medium fawn Durango, a magnificent son of the renowned
Kenamori Gold. He exhibits perfect, strong conformation, an exquisite and
very masculine head, extremely dense and crimpy fiber down to his toes,
and the most extraordinary presence. Durango placed first in halter at the
1999 AOBA Nationals, first in the Bred and owned Class at the 1999 Big E,
and first in halter at MaPaca 2000. He consistently produces over 11lbs of
quality fiber annually and one of his daughters was chosen as Best Bred
and Owned at MaPaca 2003. In 2005 Kyra was bred with our grey Champion
male, Ben MacDhui.
Awards: Judge Jill McCleod from Canada awarded Kyra a blue ribbon in the shorn class at the Big E in September 2004. Kyra placed third in a bay black halter class of 11 at the Empire Alpaca Extravaganza in October 2004.

Kyra is the black daughter of a multiple blue
ribbon winning medium fawn sire and a solid maroon dam with two maroon
parents, one of whom was imported from Australia. In the Fall of 2006, she
produced a dense, crimpy, rose grey daughter from her breeding with our
silver grey herdsire, Ben MacDhui.
Dhui is a medium silver grey herdsire with exceptional density and lock structure to his award winning fleece, excellent conformation, an exquisite typey head, and a truly delightful temperament. He also has a strong grey/black pedigree reaching back four generations, so this should be an interesting breeding as Kyra has grey ears and Dhui has a history of producing grey and black.
