June 2021 update:
Switch gave birth to Alpaca Road's Ramblin Man by Electrofyre. Rambler was up on his feet and nursing within an hour of being born. He is a smokey brown weighing in at 19 lbs covered with tons of high-luster fiber. Within hours he started playing with the other cria and did not take any of their nonsense.
Switch is one flashy young lady. She is a big-boned girl who has the locks, the luster, and the perfect conformation. Switch inherited the best from her sire, MacGyver's Hotazel, and her dam, Warrior's Natika of SBFS. What a firecracker that pairing produced.
Update: Switch has been bred to Electrofyre for a Spring 2021 cria.
Update: October 18th, 2019 Switch delivered Alpaca Road's Hotrod Lincoln and boy oh boy what a stunner he is. His sire is none other than Chakota's Midas. Lincoln is already displaying amazing luster and super vitality.
As they say, "The proof is in the tasting of the pudding" Well Switch proved her true worth at Carolina Alpaca Celebration, where she earned a Color Championship over some really tough competition. They also say the big farms get all the banners -- well Switch proved that adage wrong. Her Color Championship means a lot to us as a small farm where we own both her sire and her dam. The judge said Switch owned the ring from the moment she pranced into the ring.
We attended the NEAOBA and Empire Showtacular where Switch took home a well deserved first place in both shows. The judges were impressed with her growth and soundness for her age. One judge said that she could see the luster on Switch when she walked in the ring and there was no need to search for it.
We took her to the Mapacas 2017 Jubilee and the 2017 Small Breeders show with judge David Barboza (Small Breeders) we swept the competition to take 1st place and then onto Color Champion. Judge Barboza was very impressed with her substance of bone for her age. He was also impressed with her regrowth and lock structure. Her luster was a given.
Under judge Diana Timmerman we had a repeat performance of Small Breeders against even more alpacas and stiffer competition.
