 Darkside Herd code adds a new dimension


The inclusion of new genetics to our breeding programme has resulted in the introduction of a separate herd code to be called DARKSIDE.

This programme will run in parallel to the Belise herd code and concentrate on selected breeding, still with the primary focus being the improvement of the black Huacaya Alpacas

Arrivals and departures

This 2017 year at Belise Alpacas we welcomed SunsetEstate Kibungo to our breeding program. He brings lines from the successful Canchones Gendarme and Kismet ET breeding to compliment the very successful Warramunga Downs genetics.

Also from SunsetEstate we welcome Daquiri carrying a very special mating due in 2018.

It is with great sadness that we bade farewell to two of our foundation females, Sherlin Asha and Sherlin Sadie, a specially selected Wyona Censei and our first stud male, Warramunga Downs Kalarni. These 4 have contributed to establishing a sound foundation and building a base from which we will grow. Their presence in our herd will be missed.

Moving on and carrying a pregnancy to Warramunga Downs Enyo is Warramunga Downs Angel. Angel will be traveling to Moonacre Alpacas to contribute to their breeding program. We wish Amanda well and success with her selection.
