We welcome the arrival of our new medium brown stud male from the well known Millduck Alpaca Stud in Australia. MD Tyson has impressed with both his genetic background (MD Oregon and Banksia Park) and with his dense and stylish fleece. He will start his stud duties at Waratah Flats as an “in-house” stud male, adding another layer to our colour breeding programme.
The fibre testing results for the Waratah Flats alpaca stud male team (shorn November 2015) have continued to show impressive returns following the testing of mid side samples earlier this year.

These impressive micron levels, coupled with the low SD readings, continues to give our stud males a very soft handle to their fleeces. We are also seeing these fine fibre traits passing to their offspring. We now look forward to this years shearing.
Following a number of successful years in the show ring, WF Fire Cracker is now out in the local alpaca community on stud service duties, having has spent much of the summer at several high profile stud farms in North Canterbury. We already have a number a classy cria sired by this male and we wish the current breeders well from his services.
With four Supreme Championships to his credit, plus a string of other broad ribbons, this stunning young medium fawn male is one of the best males we have bred to date from our International Fleece Supreme Champion, Forestglen Seth.
As you can imagine we are very proud of WF Fire Cracker, with his super soft fleece that is densely packed on to his true to type frame and it is not hard to see why the judges also like him so much. This male is a real winner.
2014 fleece stats (5th fleece) very impressive – 18.7u, 3.4 SD, 17.9 CV and CF of 100%.
