Herdsire Profile- Maple Brook Barnabus

June 26, 2009

thumbnail-8.aspxHere is one of my favorite herdsires working right now- Maple Brook Barnabus. Pamela Ray of Xanadu Farm Alpacas has always been known for her keen eyes which can spot the winners, but Barnabus is a true gold-mine.

With a 12.8 AFD Juvenile micron, and superb brightness to boot, Barnabus ranks as one of the silkiest fleeces in the United States at the moment. He is producing as expected with numerous winners. One of his top daughters from the first crop of crias, Xanadu P Cloissone, is a 3x Champion and Futurity blue-ribbon winner.

Another promising daughter, Xanadu P Cadenza is a terrific buy at $35,000, even in this market.

Take a look at Barnabus for breeding. I’d like to see him tested with more colored animals, but nonetheless is holding his own in white classes.
