4/10/17 Our first of the season and what a guy. ARI # 35222385. A whopping 23.5 lbs birth weight and gaining a pound a day. Sawdust Alpacas is very pleased with this boy, very well put together. Great phenotype and bone structure. His crimp style carries on from his sire, Sunset Hill's Golden Thunder (ARi #31017435) and his dam, Skyline's Almond Joy, (ARI # 32821666). His consistent color is passed on from her Lennox line, being Medium Brown,
Thunder is our PR alpaca. He loves to meet people, and sometimes will give kisses. Great personality and disposition. He has soft handled, dense fiber. With a 22 micron count, Thunder's fiber can be used for so many products.
Thunder has his first cria on the ground! 9/29/20 - Sawdust's Jarrah . This girl definitely has her dad's coloring and size. She was 17.9 lbs at birth.
5/29/21 Thunder's 2nd cria - a brown male with a white face, named Koko.
2022 Thunder's cria are Sawdust's Babanus, male born 9/29/22 and Sawdust's Murwiti born 10/6/22 and on another farm, Jasper born 10/04/22 to Estate's Brazilian Agate.
