Alpaca Herdsire Nickleby

Nickleby's sire was National Show Blue Ribbon winner Royal Peruvian Challenger who sold in Sept. 2005 for $30,500 at auction! and Nickleby's dam is Lanark's Primrose.

Nicholas Nickleby was sold to Wishful Thinking Farm in Dameron, MD.


Nickleby is 3 for3 with a rose gray female offspring out of a brown dam, a gray female out of a black dam and a black female offspring out of a white dam. More offspring expected soon! You can't beat that track record and he's a multiple blue ribbon winner with famous sires on both sides of his lineage!

Mount Airy Nicholas Nickleby was born on 6/14/2002. He is a Tonka Truck of a guy who had the heaviest bone I've ever seen on a cria, a gorgeous color and very good density. Hit bite is perfect and so is his conformation. The judge who awarded his latest blue ribbon remarked on Nickleby's good bone and deep chest.

He is proven and his first offspring was a beautiful rose gray female! She has already sold for $10,000 at 6 months of age! See photo of Apple Valley Alpacas' "Thumbelina" below:

He is the grandson of the great Drambuie. He has won a blue ribbon in the Great Frederick Fair halter show for 2 years in a row and his medium sliver gray fleece won two Blue ribbons in 2003. Last year we kept it to use ourselves and won 2 blue ribbons for the skeins spun out of it. Shawl and hat below are from Nickleby and show the true color of his fleece.

In addition to halter, Nickleby won Versatility champion (combined scores of halter, obstacle, PR and showmanship) for us at Frederick's AOBA show in 2004; so this guy is a gentleman with good star quality in the show ring. See Nickle (with a little red dust added to fleece) in costume class at the ABC Show below:
