Snowmass Matrix Majesty Now Closed + Herdsires for Helping

I suppose that headline rather covers it, but just in case: Snowmass Matrix Majesty, our all-world Herdsire and 2013 & 2014 Futurity Herdsire of the Year is now, as of January 2017, closed for further outside stud service. The sire of countless Champions here at Cas-Cad-Nac Farm, his sons CCNF Centurion and CCNF Magistrate, among . . . → Read More: Snowmass Matrix Majesty Now Closed + Herdsires for Helping

Rise of the Rookie Herdsires

We are pleased to announce that two of our young Herdsires, Champions MFI & KVR’s Mint Mo Money and his somewhat lesser known stablemate, CCNF Sucrose, have both achieved their first confirmed pregnancies within the past week! Turns out that the breeding frenzy that the boys of the CCNF Stud Barn were on in the . . . → Read More: Rise of the Rookie Herdsires

Early Summer Roundup

Unloading the mental desk drawer of the CCNF blogger while wondering which alpaca female it is that I forgot to get bred this morning…’cause it’s that time of year.

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

Breeding season in full swing…

A potent 1-2 genetic punch: Elixir and his not quite 2 year-old brother, Centurion, working in the maiden/open female group earlier this month at the CCNF Arena.

The Herdsires here at CCNF have been working at full bore for about a month now. Though we normally don’t get things going in that regard here . . . → Read More: Breeding season in full swing…

We are never ever getting back together again (until 2014 anyway).

Snowmass Matrix Majesty and Delicate Lace conducting the final breeding of 2013 last Thursday afternoon.

With apologies to Ms. Swift, we call this meeting to adjournment. We’re done, we’re out. If you are a female alpaca on this farm that did not get bred yet as of late last week, well then no offense . . . → Read More: We are never ever getting back together again (until 2014 anyway).

Wayfarer’s first…with a grey twist!

CCNF Annabeth and her little Wayfarer daughter on Monday afternoon.

I love it when crias come out just the way that we had ordered them. Amongst other things, it helps to further promote the mythology that we know exactly what it is we are doing here!

In this particular case, the baby in question . . . → Read More: Wayfarer’s first…with a grey twist!

Holding pattern

Random bits while waiting for the 2013 cria dam to truly break:

1. La Vie en Rose and Capella, who were both due in May have now had their crias (1 female, 1 male for whatever it’s worth) but that leaves 60+ more females that are due between now and December, the vast majority over . . . → Read More: Holding pattern

Breeding special at the NAAS!

CCNF Invictus

You know having just written that headline, there are just so many things one could read into it. Does realizing that make me a bad person?

Leaving that existential question aside though, the whole purpose of this post was to announce that we will be offering a special promotion on the stud . . . → Read More: Breeding special at the NAAS!
