Getting the band back together one last time.

Tessora, Capuchin, Sugar Plum, (Moonbeam’s arse), and Freedom Reign enjoying some time in the sunshine today at the CCNF Main Barn.

As of this past weekend, virtually all of the animals that are going to be a part of our spring show strings over the next month and a half were together in one . . . → Read More: Getting the band back together one last time.

CCNF Andean Majesty, Lot #33 at the Breeders Edge

CCNF Andean Majesty: Snowmass Matrix Majesty x CCNF Andean Silk

We’re putting animals into an alpaca auction in Virginia…in the month of August. Hmm, why the sense of deja vu? 😉

As those of you that have followed our ups and downs over the years may recall, we were fortunate for several years (2008 . . . → Read More: CCNF Andean Majesty, Lot #33 at the Breeders Edge

2012: 1st Place Finishes, Championships, and Specialty Awards

It’s that time again, when we look back at the previous year’s show winnings and howl at the moon for just a moment or two. 2012 marked Cas-Cad-Nac Farm’s 15th anniversary and as one might reasonably expect of a program that has been around that long, our winnings reflect the cumulative effect of careful and . . . → Read More: 2012: 1st Place Finishes, Championships, and Specialty Awards

Well, that’s different…

It has been an interesting few days here at the farm. Monday dawned with the news that one of our skinny mommas in the Arena’s warm room, Awesome Blossom, was stumbling around and eating sand. Never the the greatest start to any week. Though we knew that she had lost a lot of body condition . . . → Read More: Well, that’s different…

Tree dodging

Some parts of each year are just like this. We of course try to be as proactive as possible about things both in our family life as well as with stuff pertaining to the animals in the herd (as if that were really separate) but ultimately there come moments — and suspiciously they seem to . . . → Read More: Tree dodging

Back to the Futurity, Part #2

CCNF Tanzania ends her show career on a hight note!

We went to Nebraska last week hopeful that we would compete if nothing else. While we have certainly had our share of success stories at the Futurity over the years, there have also been many times when we have gone with animals we genuinely . . . → Read More: Back to the Futurity, Part #2

NAAS Recap Part #2: Debutantes and Wily Veterans

All together now: the winning CCNF/TGF Get of Sire entry for Snowmass Elite Legend featuring (left to right) CCNF Hyperion, CCNF Elixir, and TGF Snow Legend. The 8 members of the Lutz and Munro families were all very happy with the result but SO ready to sleep in their own beds again by the . . . → Read More: NAAS Recap Part #2: Debutantes and Wily Veterans

2011 1sts, Championships, and Specialty Awards

Yes, it’s the shameless pat-ourselves-on-the-back-for-walking-in-circles post here at CCNF Chronicles. For years a similar edition of the hard copy newsletter would hit the mail around the 15th of January filled with show results and glossy photos. Well, kind of the same idea here except that I’m two weeks late, the photos aren’t glossy (pixely?), and . . . → Read More: 2011 1sts, Championships, and Specialty Awards

A girl we love

CCNF Andean Silk and her newborn daughter on Friday afternoon

In the 9 years since we were first partners in the Herdsires that are collectively known as the North American Alpaca Stud, few lines have garnered less attention while in point of fact getting more done than that of Snowmass Andean Bronze. While he . . . → Read More: A girl we love
