Visit our farm to see our beautiful alpaca studs in person. Our main stud is Inca Grand Design, whose sire is Popham Thunder and whose dam is Inca Essenza. He is a selectively bred solid black alpaca with perfect conformation, aged a little over two years and registered with the British Alpaca Society. His frame and fleece are balanced, and he boasts all the very best traits associated with a top line sire. His well-covered frame moves freely and with grace and his fleece is dense, fine, bright and beautifully even throughout. Each staple is correctly aligned and uniform in its structure right across the saddle. Inca Grand Design hails from Inca’s top female and Inca Belissimo. This prestigious lineage will enable you to achieve results worthy of the very best breeding programmes. Inca Grand Design made us proud at the British Alpaca Society National Show 2015, taking home the prices for 3rd Adult Black Male. In addition to his imposing presence, he boasts great substance of bone, and his fleece has a lovely lustre that has earned him quite a reputation.

Amiryck Dill is another impressive black beauty, sired by Canchones Witness of Inca and born to the stunning dam, Amiryck Belladonna. An uncle on his dam’s side, Inca Balboa, has taken home numerous prizes on the show circuit, wowing judges with his conformation, demeanour and soft, silky fleece. Amiryck Dill is currently six years old and he has a wonderful, gentle and friendly nature. He is also halter trained. At our farm, Dill has proven to be an excellent stud, producing stunning cria with rich dark colours; he has already thrown four pure black beauties! Amiryck Dill has also made us proud on the show circuit, taking home first place Senior Black Male at the Ringwood & Ellingham Show in 2014.

Contracting our stud services takes the hassle out of commencing a successful and ambitious breeding programme. Our mobile mate, drive by and on farm fees are very competitive, and our studs are well mannered yet always ready to work. The team at Hensting Alpacas are here to help you with any doubts you may have regarding breeding. We can help you select the best sire to achieve your breeding programme goals and suggest different combinations for particular colour results. We can also point out the relative strengths of different alpaca lines and answer questions on conformation, fleece quality, etc.

Our experience will help you make the wisest selection and avoid common pitfalls experienced by those who are new to breeding alpacas. Some of the issues we can discuss with you include colour (how to breed for particular hues), conformation (how to minimize undesirable traits in cria), presence and temperament (characteristics which can be attributed to genetics, at least in part), fibre traits (crimp style, lustre, fleece character, etc.). In alpacas, there tends to be an inexorable link between fineness, crimps per inch and curvature. We can also discuss our herd statistics with you, to ensure uniformity (usable fleece percentages) and minimisation of herd divergence.

Contracting our stud services wields many benefits. Your girl can visit our farm for a fortnight or so, or our stud can visit your farm if desired. After that, you needn’t worry about issues such as stud management and if the cria are not to your wishes, you always have the option of using another stud the next time around. When you use different studs, this can ensure a wider range of genetics in your herd, avoiding line breeding and its negative effects. We suggest you pay a visit to our farm, since the feeling you get when viewing an alpaca in person is quite unique, enabling you to appreciate its beauty and temperament to the greatest extent possible. Our studs have an impressive lineage, outstanding beauty and proven value, having produced beautiful cria which meet and surpass top quality conformation and fleece standards.
