Early Summer Roundup

Sam and Jen forgot their sunglasses before we went up on deck. They can be forgiven of course: it was 12:03 AM!

Bombing around the Norwegian fjords north of the Arctic Circle, Sam and Jen forgot their sunglasses before we all went up on deck. They can . . . → Read More: Early Summer Roundup

The details though: as of July 1st, 2016, CCNF Elixir, our beige Futurity Champion and Judges’ Choice winner — whom we co own with our friends the Padgett family at A . . . → Read More: CCNF Elixir to be closed for future outside breedings.

And then…there is this guy. CCNF Leviathan represents perhaps the most advanced animal we have ever offered for sale over our 19+ years of breeding alpacas. He is the amalgam of some pretty exciting genetic alchemy that really got cooking here some 13 years ago with the . . . → Read More: 2016 Parade of Champions, Lot #16: CCNF Leviathan

Naked Alpacas

Oh, the shame! CCNF Below Zero suffers the indignity of having gone first on Friday morning.

Last week we had the first 2 of our 3 shearing days here at at the farm. Proceedings got under way on Thursday with the entire population of the CCNF Main Barn — virtually all of the 2015 birth class, our yearling males, and our spring show critters, male and female — getting trucked uphill . . . → Read More: Naked Alpacas

CCNF at the 2016 Mapaca Jubilee and some early POC stuff!

Our two Judges' Choice Trophies from last weekend: one for JC Huacaya Female in the Mapaca halter show (CCNF Delilah), the second for JC Huacaya in the Mapaca Fleece Show (CCNF Prima Majesty).

We have come to love Harrisburg, PA and the Pennsylvania Farm Show complex that has been the home of the Mapaca Jubilee show for the past 15 years. That venue has hosted both some of our biggest initial show victories (CCNF Archangel’s first Championship in 2004, and his younger sister Magdalena’s 2 years later, after . . . → Read More: CCNF at the 2016 Mapaca Jubilee and some early POC stuff!

There are so many things we could talk about, having come home late last Saturday from the new double show that was the North American Alpaca Show & Northeast Alpaca Expo. Let me say right off the bat though, that while we heard some chatter from various friends and colleagues that not everyone in Springfield . . . → Read More: Cas-Cad-Nac Farm at the NAAS/NAE: Elixirs Are Wild
