LBHH Lakisha 
If you have ever seen CPeruvian LB Remington, as we did at MaPaca in 2001, you would understand our excitement about having his true black 3/4 Peruvian daughter, Lakisha, in our foundation herd! Remington is one of those males that stops you dead in your tracks and makes you spin around on your heel for a second look. He has phenomenal macho presence, conformation, serious coverage, density and crimp, and a wonderful mellow temperament. Lakisha's dam is a true black granddaughter of Peruvian Chocolateer and The Silversmith, with very good conformation and coverage, plus great handle and staple length. Lakisha has wonderful solid, square, typey conformation, with excellent density and handle to her fiber and a perfect bite. In November 2007 she produced her first cria, Boadicca, a stunning true black female, and Lakisha has proven herself to be a wonderful mother and milker. Lakisha was bred with our award-winning Peruvian Presidio son, Tundra, in Fall 2007.

Awards: In her first showring appearance at 9 months of age, Lakisha placed 4th in a halter class of 12 juvenile black females at the 2006 Virginia Classic. Lakisha's juvenile blanket had a 4lb annualised shearing weight, and was awarded a second place by Jill McCloud in the 2006 PAOBA fleece show. Cathy Songer awarded her fiber second place in the SpinOff at the 2006 VAOBA Alpaca Expo, with a score of 90/100, commenting that she had "excellent color integrity (no bleaching)", and Lakisha placed fourth in a full fleece halter class of eleven at this Level III show. Her fiber also placed first in a class of 7 at the 2006 Mid-America SpinOff, second in a class of 8 in the 2007 MOPACA SpinOff competition, with a score of 90/100, and her 22 month shearing won a second place in the 2007 PAOBA show.

Remington has outstanding conformation, is loaded with extremely dense crimpy fiber, and has a stunning overall presence. Remington's cria are now on the ground, and they are outstanding.
