2021: Outside Matings To Be Determined
Houghton Cosmic is a very true to type blue black male of small stature with a presence, exceptional conformation, great substance of bone, a handsome head, and a great depth of colour. He was sired by the outstanding imported Parrindi Joseph of Houghton, a remarkable grey male who was still carrying a beautifully handling fleece of 25 microns at 7 years old. Just like his sire, Cosmic carries a strong character in his fleece with clear, high frequency crimp that runs the full length of the staple. He keeps this consistent style down his legs, and right under his belly.
Having fulfilled his role at Nero Black Alpaca, Cosmic has now been brought into our herd to take on a new role. Cosmic has proven as a stud that can produce quality black alpaca. He gives his cria fleeces full of character with a great depth of colour, as well as his strength of bone, conformation, and attractive head type. In 2018 he won Champion Dark Herdsire at the Alpaca National Championships, proving how strong a stamp he leaves on his cria. Statistically, Cosmic produces more females than males, though both carry great quality.
Here at Capital Alpaca, we do not specialise in breeding black alpaca, so Cosmic is entering a new phase in his career. We hope to not only unlock his potential in breeding grey alpaca, but also to act as a balancer to some of our longer bodied females lacking character and depth of colour in their fleeces.
