Mercy was one of our first alpacas. We bought her and Bella of Lilymoore farm together. As far as learning to work with alpacas goes, they were probably the best choices we ever made. Mercy’s personality is calm, sweet, and saucy. She is a beautiful dark fawn color with a white underbelly and brown on her face. As far as fiber producing goes, you can’t get much better than her. She has an astonishing 5″ staple length, which it seems that she has passed onto her cria( 8 months old and 5″of fiber; 4 months left before shearing still). She is the best fiber producer we have, giving us usually around 3 full bags of fiber vs the normal 2. Staple length isn’t all she has though. Her conformation couldn’t get better and her topknot is huge. Both of these characteristics were also passed onto her cria.
Mercy’s dam is a gorgeous medium brown color, almost caramely. RCAF Tally Ho, Mercy’s dam, has been known to throw both light and dark. This is probably due to her having brown, black, white, beige and fawn all in her background. Never the less, she has produced many nice, ribbon winning cria. Most of her cria have been girls, 6 out of 7, which is a fantastic trait that I am hoping Mercy acquired. So far Mercy has had one female cria, Mercy’s Angel of Lilymoore Farm. Angel was fawn and beige out of a medium fawn sire.
Mercy’s sire, SPA Alpacas Infiniti, is a 4x Champion Indefinite. His three primary colors are dark rose grey, dark silver grey, and dark brown. He has a strong black background though. His father is none other than Black Icecapade! Infiniti provides Mercy with lineage from:5Peruvian Black Ice, 5Peruvian Malley, Acero Marka’s Mr. Know It All, and of course Black Icecapade.
Mercy gave birth to a male – The Mighty Tropical Gabriel in May of 2018. He is definitely going to the shows. With Mercy as his mother and our 3x Champion herdsire CCAP Tropical Forest as his dad, Gabriel needs to have a few ribbons and championships of his own.
With such impressive lineage on her sire’s side and even more on her dam’s side, we are very grateful to have Mercy as part of the foundation herd at Lilymoore Farm.
