Our foray into stud males began with two through-and-through whites, Legend of Spartacus and Gianmarco’s Masterpiece who combined rare elite genetics from famous Australian EP Cambridge herd sires (EP Cambridge Peruvian Spartacus, Jolimont Commisario, Jolimont Gianmarco, Jolimont Sculptor and Jolimont Encantador). We learnt a lot and they produced some beautifully proportioned physical characteristics and fleeces.
Sandstorm is our homebred fawn Double Champion from EP Cambridge Little Miss Irraquoy and Cambridge Buckingham, whom we purchased from the 2008 British Alpaca Futurity elite auction.
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 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. We welcomed him on 18 August 2014.
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 recent home bred stud boys are the pinnacle of our 500+ 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 out personality.
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 we have 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 is a Supreme Champion and his fleece was described as “orgasmic” by Judge Rob Bettinson!
In 2020 between lockdowns we somehow managed to add 2 more wonder boys to our stable. Herts Alpacas Grey Indie Sky is a fabulous rose grey alpaca and with his unrelated friend Herts Alpacas Grey Aramist, medium grey, we’re the place to come if grey is your thing (we love it).
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!
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 or ‘drive by’ matings (where you bring your lovely girl to us). We are available at a time 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.
