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 provided an exciting addition to our herd sire line-up and has not disappointed. In 2018 he won Champion Dark Herdsire at the Alpaca National Championships.

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, down his legs, and right under his belly.

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

Cosmic’s first cria hit the ground in 2017 and are impressively consistent as highlighted by his win at the Nationals. 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 Mountbatten

Just as we were bringing Mountbatten into the stud team for 2018 he only went and won Supreme Champion Huacaya at the Northumberland Show! Judge Nick Harrington Smith consistently praised his conformation and dense, commercial fleece. Now 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 completed his first work in 2018 and we are excited to see his first progeny in 2019.
