Alpaca Herdsire Nickleby
Nicholas Nickleby was sold to Wishful Thinking Farm in Dameron, MD.
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:
Nickleby x Jazzmine (brown dam) - Look at the conformation on this girl!
Nickle's 2nd cria just born - a 20 lb. black female out of a white dam.

3 days old - Look at this crimp!
Straight bone & good proportion - 3 days old.
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:
