UPDATE: Nattie is due Spring 2023! WLK Berenger will have his first crop of cria hitting the ground next year. Can't wait to see what this combination produces!
Nataliah is confirmed pregnant to our Cinder's Son, GLR Cazadores! This will be his first cria on the ground at Raynay Alpaca Farm. Super excited to welcome a Cazadores cria in the Fall of 2021. BINGO!! Handsome black boy joined our herd September 26th!
When Nataliah was born, we could hardly believe how black she was, nor how bright and lustrous her fleece is. Apparently the judges that Nataliah encountered during the 2011 show season could hardly believe it, either. Nataliah took a 3rd at GWAS and the Futurity, a 2nd at CABA, a 1st at the IAO, and a 1st and a Color Champion at AOBA.
Nataliah’s dam is Nikatia. Yes, that Nikatia—the mother of PVA Mahogany Prince. The one who started it all for Park View Alpacas. Her dam was Peruvian Ninochtka, and her sire must have been some handsome fellow roaming the Altiplano. In them lay the seeds of PVA’s entire breeding program—the Headmaster himself, and his 2nd, 3rd,4th, and soon 5th generation Supreme and Color Champions. Nikatia has been bred to many different herd sires in her long career, and produced such offspring as PVA Geneva, PVA Nikita, and Nicollette of PVA.
In 2008 she was bred Nikatia to MacGyver’s Balboa, thus producing the Color Champion Nataliah of PVA in 2009. Nataliah’s sire, MacGyver’s Balboa, won 16 AOBA certified halter championships and 21 blue ribbons during his own show career. He is a world record holder for the most halter class color championships in history. In 2008 he received a color championship at the AOBA National Fleece show, and also got the Judges’ Choice and Best Lock awards, chosen from among all the color groups. Most recently, in 2011, Balboa was named the Dark Herd Sire of the Year, and Reserve Light Herd Sire of the Year! Offspring like Nataliah made this possible for him.
We at Raynay Alpaca Farm are excited about the addition of Nattie to our growing herd. She is correct conformationally and displays the independent lock structure as well as a high degree of luster.
May 5th 2019 Nataliah delivered a stunning black female cria sired by Goldstar's Jet. We have named her Cazual Chic of Nataliah. She is spending her Summer in Colorado and we are looking forward to showing her Spring 2021 in Full Fleece. Chic competed in the quad show fall 2020 in Iowa and garnered 4 championships!!
September 9, 2020 Nataliah delivered a interesting colored male cria sired by Beau's Salvo. He is dark brown with a black points and a black patch on his rump. One white sock and 2 white eyebrows! Nattie is being bred to a Cinder's male, GLR Cazadores for a Fall 2021 cria.
