My first suri (December, 2007)

For a few years now, I've wanted a suri and a llama. Well, the suri has finally arrived.

When this website started, one of the first advertisers was Linda Gillies (Wardlaws). She had a stud boy listed, Somerset Peruvian Ivory Prince. He was a suri, with seven F1 cria already, and no huacaya cria, giving excellent odds that he was homogenous - about 99%. Best of all his stud fee was only $300 at the time and it was just one hour's drive to get there.

I picked Phoebe for this mating because she was as excellent mother, she had held her previous two pregnancys to full term, one of her cria to my stud boy ( Rosenberg) was a blue-eyed white and I would prefer to not repeat that, and most important she was to be mated soon. So early in spring 2006 she was relocated to Linda's place in Dunolly, and two months later she came back home.

She had sat for Prince when she arrived at Linda's, so late August we started to keep watch for a cria. She looked pregnant, but nothing happened. By early December we were starting to have doubts - was she pregnant to Prince or had she lost Prince's cria and become pregnant to my stud boy? Finally, in mid-December, a female cria (Clara) arrived. It looked like several of the cria from my stud boy so at first glance it was joyous (it's a girl) disappointment (looks like it's not Prince's). Then I opened up the fleece and it lacked the crimp of an huacaya, but had a high amplitude style that seemed to form seperate clumps. We are still unsure if it is a suri, but I'm reasonably confident.

Some statistics:

  • Number of F1 suri cria for Prince then - 7 (99% confidence of him being homogenous)
  • Number of F1 suri cria for Prince now - more than 15 (99.99% confidence of him being homogenous)
  • Gestation period if its Prince's - at least 1 year 4 days
  • Phoebe's cria are all female - 1 chance in 8
  • Wesley Hill

    January Update...

    Disappointment. It looks like the cria is not a suri. Considering the long gestation and Prince's homogenous status, it looks like Phoebe must have lost Prince's cria and become pregnant to Rosenberg shortly after coming home. I've had a couple more girls mated to Prince, so I'll hopefully get my first suri later this year.
