Laiyelah is a compact alpaca who has nice proportions, a lovely head, heavy bones, and a gorgeous black fleece. Although Laiyelah is one of our smaller females, she is one of our best fleece producers. Her fleece has a wonderful handle with excellent staple length. At the Great Midwest Alpaca Festival her fleece came in 3rd behind two Magical Farm's herdsires in a class of six. At the 2005 Midwest Alpaca Jamboree, Laiyelah's fleece placed second and her beautiful fleece received 9 out of 10 points for brightness and all 7 points for staple length! At seven years old, Laiyelah was still winning ribbons and placing above younger alpacas.
Laiyelah has produced three grey males when bred to grey, a true black female when bred to black, and her most recent cria, Spirit Song Hope Springs Eternal is a dark fawn out of a light fawn sire. Her first cria was a Reserve Color Champion. Laiyelah has been an excellent mother to her crias.
In addition to Laiyelah's physical attributes, she is quite the charmer. She has captured the eye of a newspaper photographer and her picture was featured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. She is one of our more curious alpacas who is often intrigued by the visitors that come to our farm.
