It’s (a Big) Boy!

Peaceful Heart Tennyson's Ulysses

We were thrilled to welcome a very big boy to our farm on June 18.  Peaceful Heart Tennyson’s Ulysses was born to Peruvian Natasha and Lord Tennyson, weighing in at 24.4 pounds.

Wild Bells and Ulysses

Alpaca crias generally weigh between 14 to 18 pounds, so Ulysses hit the ground with quite a bit of a head start.  He is bigger than his older half sister Wild Bells (born 6/13/13), and is having a great time playing with her.

Ulysses not only has the size and presence that reminds us of his sire Lord Tennyson when he was born, but also has the incredibly dense fleece.  We expect Ulysses to be as impressive a herdsire and do as well in shows as his sire (you can see a list of Tennyson’s winnings on his herdsire page).  Ulysses carries the genetics of Bueno and Caligula from Tennyson’s side as well as Hemingway, Snowmass Black Diamond, Guellermo and Timoteo on his dam Natasha’s side.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to put Ulysses to work on our farm because he is so closely related to many of our alpacas.   Natasha and Ulysses are available for sale, and present a great opportunity for someone to add this super future herdsire to their herd.
