Our Burnished Hope ("Burnie") is a gentle, intelligent alpaca with beautifully lustrous and uniform fleece. Burnie is the product of West Coast genetics at Aero Ranch in California, but will be visiting Bag End during the summers of 2017 and 2018. He is available for a limited number of outside breedings, with either full female board or local mobile breedings, from June through September (possibly October).

At eight years of age, Burnie remains very lustrous, with a pleasing handle due to his very uniform fleece. He has been producing offspring with sub-20 micron juvenile fleeces, with excellent conformation and suri type. He is a gentleman while breeding, and has the kind of disposition you want in your alpacas. He traveled without complaint for two days in the back of a Transit Connect coming up from his winter home in Georgia, and hopped in and out of the vehicle with aplomb (confusing quite a few people at rest areas on the way).

If you are looking for top notch genetics and excellent fiber qualities, look no further! Burnie's pedigree is packed with well known Peruvian alpacas, including Bruxo, Baron, and Torbio. His histograms also tell their own story. This is a great opportunity for East Coast breeders to have access to a truly excellent animal without having to send their females across the country.
