Stud males

BLACKBERRY JACKKNIFE


Jackknife is a very strong and striking black male, well known on the show circuit over the last 2 years

His conformation is correct and he walks with great balance, stature and presence.
As he is maturing into an adult his fleece is really starting to show its true colours. Extremely blue black in colour and carrying all the positive traits expected in a top quality herd sire, carrying fineness, density and uniformity of both colour and micron right across the saddle, down his legs and into his neck. His fleece also exhibits a fabulous growth rate and fleece weight, with beautiful character and structure throughout.
Blackberry Jackknife has a high level of quality running through both sides of his pedigree, with Jack of Spades for a sire and his dam, the highly rated Inca Elise, producing many champions over the last 5 years.
Blackberry Jackknife started working at 20 months and has been used exclusively over some of our finest females last year and is sure to be a big hit in the future.

POPHAM THUNDER

 Popham Thunder needs little introduction as he has been a permanent feature in the UK show circuit in 2010, 2011 and 2012.
Thunder is very well bred and comes from two family lines that have uniform and predictable bloodlines
that continue to perform to the highest degree. Conformationally Thunder is correct, upright and has great presence
and strength. He displays a very true to type head and he is extremely well covered in fibre.
The fleece on this male is where he really excels. He is a very high fleece growth rate, fineness and density.
Each highly aligned fibre is uniform in micron and colour and this uniformity spreads right down under the belly and
up into the head.

Popham Thunder is co-owned by  Blackberry Alpacas ,Inca Alpaca and Redens Alpacas,

MARQUESS NICHOLAS OF BLACKBERRY

Labelled as one of the most impressive and important black males to be sired by the mighty Windsong Vaalley Firedragon 

 

Nicholas  is a stand out male. He is beautifully conformed with a stunning head type and his uniformity of micron, demonstrated with his low SD, gives his rich black fleece a soft buttery feel. 

He is  exceptionally dense and probably the densess black alpaca I have felt in 9 years of breeding that is even more 

impressive when you consider how fine he is.

 

Unbeaten on the very competitive  Australian  show circuit, being awarded multiple supremes and culminating in the

2018 AAA National Black Champion



Select pregnant EP Cambridge  and Canchones females will be available for import to the UK and throughout Europe via Blackberry Alpacas


We are looking to import  Nicholas into the UK spring 2020

HAYLILLA INTUITION OF BLACKBERRY

With a impeccable show record  including Supreme and Grand Chapions Intuition is also the currently the AAA2018  National  Show Fawn Champion

This is not a elite fawn male to take lightly it has beaten some of the best alpacas Australia has produced and only just narrowly missing out on  Grand  Chapion at the  AAA National  Show

The pictures I took of this male and his fleece do not do him justice the shear density and fineness along with amazing uniformity of micron not just within the staples but right into the chest ,neck and lower legs

What I find so impressive is not just the quality of this male but that both his sire and dam are from a prestigious line of blue black sincluding Leaenna Armani

I believe Intuition has the potential to make big leaps forward in the quality of black,s browns as well as fawns out of darker colours
