Certificate of Registration

Kookaboo and Mosby are my “premier”suri llama herdsires. My suri llama foundation herd will be based on some of their excellent genetics. Kookaboo, as a cria, looked like a “grease ball” due to his incredible luster – comparable to some of my best suri alpacas. You can easily see this in his first photograph on his description. I was most impressed with Kookaboo, even at birth. Kookaboo still retains an excellent lock structure with lots of density. I will definitely be going through the keuring process with the Suri Llama Association for Kookaboo due to his super high quality and strong suri phenotype. And what is even better about this, is that this package comes in an absolutely gorgeous grey! Suri alpaca breeders will go crazy over this one! I know that I have!

Please review Kookaboo’s pedigree on his registration. He is related to many blue ribbon and grand champions. I plan to start breeding Kookaboo in the Spring of 2009. I can’t wait to see his suri llama crias!

Stud Fee: $2,000

 

Lineage Dam:

Shangrila’s Kiki
Intense Grey Brown, 253779, Breeding

Kiki is an integral member of my foundation breeding stock. She will never, ever be for sale.

Lineage Sire:

BAL Presidio
Medium Grey, 236315, Breeding

We are so grateful to Dan and Dale Goodyear of Berry Acres for offering BAL Presidio at the 2003 Berry Picking. We were awed by his father Rising Star’s Antonio. It turned out that almost every llama we really liked that came up for sale was an offspring of Antonio. Then when Presidio’s half-sister out of Sorpresada, Rumba G came up for sale my jaw dropped. She is absolutely gorgeous. I later found out she received a Grand for heavy wool female at the Virginia Classic. We also found out that BAL Presidio won the Young Male Futurity at the Northeast Llama Showcase and Sorpresada won Produce of Dam. We decided we wanted to add these bloodlines to our breeding program.

His first babies have all been beautiful. His daughter Shangrila’s Miss Rita got First Place Heavy Wool Juvenile and Reserve Champion Heavy Wool at her first show, the 2006 Shenandoah Showcase . She just got Grand Champion Medium Wool Female at the 2007 Virginia Classic.
