Because I can... :)  
So before shearing, we've decided to try and get good, full-fleece pictures worthy of putting up for our stud-lists and sales-lists. As a trial run for the background... we had our gorgeous grey herdsire be our model.

Thank god for digital cameras... the amount of pictures we went through before we got something that wasn't silly (mouth open, chewing, rolling, etc etc)... heheh.

Though I'd post the picture we're going to use for this guy.  Enjoy!

He looks very proud of himself and rightly so! :-D

He is beautiful. The fiber's a great color. I've got a thing for long-nosed alpacas.

He's actually a lot darker inside... got lighter with the sun n' all. Lets see if I can find a picture for ya...

Oh, wow, he's almost a true gray. That's gotta spin up nice.

Is he a stud? Does he pass this on?

He's considered a 'medium silver gray' and wow, yeah... its good stuff. Last year's shearing, he had about 7lbs of total fiber, and his micron count came in at 20.1. He won 3rd place at the AOBA National Conference last year for his fiber.

He's studding for us now, but his first cria doesn't hit the ground until August '07. We're crazy excited to see if he can pass on that beautiful fiber of his.

I thought I recognized him!! then I thought maybe I was thinking of Cavalier's Andy.

Congratulations! Hope his babies are as beautiful as he is.
