Elaina is a bay black female out of the gray herdsire, Snowmass Enlightenment. Her dam is a true black full Peruvian female from Libby Forstner's herd, LMFI Peruvian Inevitably Black. The dam's pedigree is impeccable as a daughter of MFI Peruvian Black Mesquite and out of an MFI Peruvian Jericho daughter (Jericho, sire of Jeremiah). Elaina's pedigree is full of color, especially gray and true black - dark color back to the 5th generation in the dam's pedigree. Elaina has beautifully bright, crimpy fleece that is very fine. Her four year old fleece measured a micron of 18.7 and very uniform with SD of 3.2 and has an incredible handle. She follows in the footsteps of her older maternal brother, Luxor. Luxor has a very fine dark brown fleece - 15.4 micron as a juvenile and 17.6 as a yearling with low SD and is a blue ribbon and reserve color champion male. Her pataernal half sister, Briana, is also a beautiful blue ribbon girl. Elaina has grown into a statuesque female with nice presence, straight legs and level topline. With so much gray and black in her pedigree, she will match up nicely to farms breeding for those colors. Those kind of fleece stats are amazing, especially in a dark animal. And it's no fluke - her maternal half brother exhibits the same fleece qualities. One of our major goals is lingering fineness, and alpacas like Elaina are helping us reach that goal.
