Alpaca babies, also known as crias, are cute and energetic. They can often be seen
running through the fields, especially at sunset. It is a rare, but special treat
when the whole herd joins them.
On this page are pictures of our crias from
2010: Santino, Desdemona
2009: Cappuccino, Nerina, and Benvolio.
Our 2009 Crias
On May 5th, our true black female, "Velvet" delivered a very nice medium brown boy. His
2x Color Champion and 5x blue ribbon winning sire is Starbuck de Alta Vista. This
new boy, "Starbuck's Cappuccino", has medium brown fleece and a very friendly temperament.
On May 13, our true black female, "Greta Garbo" gave birth to a true black baby girl. Her
sire is Patagonia's Seymour, a 3X blue ribbon winner with blue-ribbon winning offspring.
She has been named "Nerina" (“little blackie” in Italian) by our Italian Foreign
On June 16th, after a 369 day gestation, “My Sweet Sunshine” delivered a 22+ pound
white male cria. His sire is 3x Color Champion ScF Chewbaccafrom Silvercloud Farm.
Chewbacca has extremely fine (15.4 µ - 1st yr.) and dense fleece. He also has a
Champion cria to his name. We named this newest cria Benvolio a.k.a. “Ben”. His
fleece is fine, extremely bright and dense, so we have high hopes for his success
in the show ring.
Our 2010 Crias
On May 14, Flint Stone Farm Chloe gave birth to Santino, a fawn boy. The boy’s sire,
Silvercloud Farm’s Mercurio, has two Reserve Color Championships and 5 blue ribbons

3rd Place in the GET-OF-SIRE Class at MAPACA 2009! Chloe’s strong frame and rich
dark brown fleece combined with Mercurio’s elite fleece and proven ability to produce
champion crias are sure to produce an excellent quality animal.
