Description

After seeing Sienna's first two cria when bred to Sierra Bonita's Teewinot, we knew she would prove to be one of our best dams. Her first cria, Cecily, had this as her first year histogram: AFD 15.3 SD 3.6 CV 23.6 CF 100%. She won second place out of a class of six yearlings at the Wild West Alpaca Fleece Show in 2007. Sienna's second cria, BMR Mercedes, won the Light Color Championship at the same show as a juvenile. Her third cria born in fall 2008, was a handsome dark brown male with all the fiber characteristics of his two sisters. We named him "Our Shiloh's Seth" ("Snickers" to us).
Sienna boasts Peruvian Hemingway as her grandsire. At 8 years of age and through 4 pregnancies, her 2009 histogram came back with a 23.8 micron and a CV of 19.4.
Sienna has the Hemingway crimp: low amplitude, high frequency.

Sienna gave birth on Oct 20, 2011, to a fabulous fawn female. Her name? "Our Shiloh's Sahara". Sahara brought home the Reserve Champ banner at SWRAS 2014!

At her age, Sienna deserves to live out her life, pampered and retaining her place as the alpha female in the herd. She won't be bred, just live peacefully with her daughter and lifelong herd mates. She's the smartest alpaca I've met. Check out the last picture posted to the right. I put up a banner in the girls' barn. Immediately, the only two animals in the barn who could "see" the alpacas on the banner were America, the llama and Sienna. They stayed there and continued to look at it for several hours. Staring, then standing back, trying to understand the figures on the wall. It wasn't until I read several books by Temple Grandin to understand herd behavior that I gained even more respect for her intelligence. She allows the llama to enter the pasture first, keeping the herd behind her until she decides there is no danger. Sienna hides herself, protected in the middle of the herd, just in case the llama made a mistake. Love this grand old lady!
