7/28/2019 BOMBSHELL had her cria today. A fantastic boy, 16.5 #. Great confirmation and beautiful fiber. An ISIDORO son. A new wood name coming soon. MADRONE!!
We want to thank Chris and Lori Works, Kendall Creek Farms, Bradford PA. for selling us this amazing PG female at the 2018 Snow Diamond Select Auction. Truly a wonderful addition to our herd.
From Kendall Creek Farms:
The main thing to know about this young lady, other than her knockout genetics, is that her fleece is dark brown and yet the quality of most whites. She has incredible fineness and handle, buttery soft density, and a phenotype that we would like to impart on every alpaca. At her first show, the Buckeye in Ohio where there were over 400 entries, Bombshell placed second in her class losing only to the Color Champ and eventual Female Judge's Choice winner. She has gone on to the "Bride's Maid" 3 additional times in 2017.... darn it!! But you know, that means she is consistently right at the top of very difficult classes and in great company. Until........ low and behold - Reserve Champion at the 2017 PAOBA Breeders Showcase!!!! Well Deserved Bombshell!! This girl is really second to None!
Bombshell's sire is our very own LMFI Jeremiah's Indescribable. Indy now has 15 registered offspring between 8 different farms and that is enough to generate a little statistics for you. Of the 15 cria, 11 are show age and 10 have been shown at halter. 100% of them have placed in their class; and 86% of those have placed in the top 3; and 27 of the 35 awards were for first or second place. Four have won Color Champion or Reserve Champion banners, with a total of 7 banners between them. And, the 4 champion alpaca were one black, two brown, and one white.
So, a 100% ribbon rate and a 40% Champion rate. We feel this measures up rather well, and most importantly is an indication of the consistency and uniformity of the production from this male, regardless of color. this is exactly what we are looking for in our breeding program and we are proud to have him as part of the KCF Herdsire Row!!
Bombshell is now confirmed at 56 days pregnant to KCF ISIDORO. Madrone, male, is growing and is a gorgeous guy.
Bombshell has been bred to our Sawdust's Almond Thunder for a 2021 cria. A girl, named Sawdust's Bethabara
