Five exceptional stud males

Proven stud males with show records and progeny to help you achieve the best results in improving your own herd.

Nero Black Shadow

Shadow is an impressive blue black male with multiple championships to his name including the inaugural Alpaca Showtime Black Male Champion which he won just a couple of weeks after taking Reserve Black Male at the 2014 Nationals.

He displays enviable substance of bone and a solid, true to type frame. He has a powerful yet attractive head, typical of his sire ATA Cambridge Centurion. Shadow's bright black fleece has great density and a beautifully soft handle. Of an advanced type it is highly aligned and uniform in crimp and micron.

Whilst his dam Nero Black Galaxy was Futurity Brown Champion in 2011 there is also a depth of black genetics behind Shadow. His sire, mentioned above, needs no further introduction. His Grandmother Cambridge Scarborough has produced 3 show black champions and in her own right still carries a beautiful fine black fleece.

Shadow now has many progeny, the vast majority of which are solid True Black and have tremendous characteristics contributed by him. Most are strong boned with great conformation. Many have the buttery, weightiness to their fleece that he himself possesses. They typically have high frequency crimp and clear organisation. Shadow has retained an enviable fineness for a working male of his age.

In summary Nero Black Shadow is an outstanding male who will bring quality and progression to the herd of any black breeder.

Houghton Cosmic

Purchased from Houghton Hall Alpacas, in November 2015, Cosmic is an exciting addition to our herd sire line-up.

A true Blue / Black male who oozes style, presence and quality.

This male's strength of bone and confirmation are impressive and true to type.

Cosmic's fleece is full of character and consistent in fineness and style, throughout his fleece, down his legs, and right under his belly.

Sired by the outstanding imported Parrindi Joseph of Houghton Hall, a remarkable grey male still carrying a fleece of 25 microns at 7 years old.

Cosmic’s first cria hit the ground in 2017 and are impressively consistent. There is an obvious similarity with all his offspring. Their fleeces are repeatedly imprinted with character, fineness and density from this sire. For those looking to breed females Cosmic threw 9 females out of 11 cria in 2017.

Nero Black Bamboo

A true Macho Huacaya. Nero Black Bamboo was born on the11th July 2014. He is a standout young male, mid-fawn but, offering enormous colour potential through his breeding.

He is very good looking and exhibits excellent strength of bone and overall conformation. His beautiful bright fleece has exceptional staple length with great density, stylish crimp and structure whilst being fine and consistent in colour.

Bamboo’s dam Nero Black Rose is one of our top black females from a strong genetic line of blue black alpacas. His sire is the renowned Waradene St Patrick who is mid fawn himself but throws plenty of colour.

We have been delighted with Bamboo’s show record winning his classes locally and gaining 3rd places in fiercely competitive national events against males with full fawn backgrounds.

He now has 6 progeny who all were born in 2017 – they all have fabulous fleeces and tremendous strength of bone and have grown into large framed strong alpacas.

Nero Black Mountbatten

We are very excited to bring Mountbatten into the stud team for 2018. A multi Championship winning light fawn male with super fine fleece, he is sure to catch anyone’s eye.

Son of Nero Black Galaxy and Waradene St Patrick he oozes quality and style, whilst offering excellent bloodlines and depth of colour too.

Mountbatten’s fleece is well organised, dense, ultra fine with an exceptional handle and very good staple length.

This young male is a very exciting prospect for 2018.

Nero Black Maestro

We are delighted to be able to offer Maestro for outside stud services on behalf of our client Bingfield Alpacas.

Maestro is an exceptionally well grown male, offering highly desirable blood lines, fleece qualities and depth of colour. He is registered as a brown and has had a very good show career, however he won Champion Black Male at the Yorkshire Alpaca Show in October 2018. This reflects his true quality but also potential to produce a variety of colour in his progeny.

Maestro is a striking male with a very attractive head shape, strong boned and true to type. He was born by Caesarian Section and subsequently bottle fed, this has resulted in him being extremely comfortable around humans.
