We have been building our stable of stud males since 2008 to advance the quality of our herd and provide our clients with some of the World’s finest alpaca genetics.
Sandstorm is our homebred fawn Double Champion from EP Cambridge Little Miss Irraquoy, whom we purchased from the 2008 British Alpaca Futurity elite auction, and Cambridge Buckingham. His genetics have to be studied to be believed!
Our brown herd sire, Inca Darwin was chosen due to his amazingly consistent and uniform colour, also his strong frame. He is from the Inca Alpaca stud from alpaca judge and fleece expert Tim Hey and joined us at Barnacre in October 2013.
Wyona Sunburst is the most incredible Rose Grey, a quintuple (5 times) Champion, from an elite breeding programme in Australia with a fleece displaying characteristics only found in superior whites. He is bred from a family of champions, has a striking eye catching presence and joined us on 11 March 2013.
Wyona Sunset Boulevarde. The most amazing, dense and consistent medium grey we have ever come across. A champion in the show ring, a rich and deep elite grey pedigree. This boy is going to help Barnacre and our clients really lift the grey standard! We welcomed him on 18 August 2014.
With grey being our passion we have this year added Herts Aramist and Herts Indie Syke who is a multiple grey Champion. We are very excited to see what these boys produce over our black and grey girls.
From the Northumbrian alpaca herd we have obtained 2 amazing stocky white males who produce outstanding fleeces: Northumbrian Pybba and Northumbrian Ida, who cuts over 6kg of fleece!
Our home bred stud boys are the pinnacle of our 400+ cria and are doing us proud in the showring and through their progeny. We have Barnacre Flint (medium grey) who is fine fleeced with a wonderful chilled our personality. Barnacre Jazz (dark grey) compact but as stocky as a tank, or big boned if you prefer! Barnacre Anubis (brown) is Mr Cool with a lovely fleece of great character and density. Barnacre Merlin (fawn) is fine fleeced and wonderfully dense, he’s one of Debbie’s favourites! Then there’s our whites Barnacre Jasper and Thor. Blimey where do we start? Jasper loves our walk n talks, cuts over 6kg of super fine fleece and is incredibly dense. Thor’s is a Supreme Champion and his fleece was described as “orgasmic” by Judge Rob Bettinson! There’s also Leyton who is superfine and very consistent, Plato, who is exceptionally dense and carries Bozedown genetics, Keano who is sired by multiple supreme champion Beck Brow Explorer.
We also have a small, elite group of spectacular young males who are destined to be herd sires some day soon, let us know if you want to meet them!
2020 is proving to be very very exciting indeed!
Our premium stud service has been designed to reflect the very best we have experienced and will include ‘on farm mating’ at our bespoke tranquil rural setting; mobile and ‘drive by’ matings. We are available at a time and location of your choosing (subject to prior bookings).
We will openly share with you the last shorn fleece for each stud male, three-year fleece histogram reports and full pedigree information. We are also be providing continuous and honest information about the progress of each male and their offspring.
Stud prices are set competitively mindful of the quality of genetics and evidence from the cria these boys have produced.
We hope you enjoy reading about and using our stud males. The website will be continuously updated and visitors to Barnacre are very welcome, by appointment please.
Good luck with your breeding programme.
