WF Strawberry Deelite
Sire: LW Strawberry Field - Dam: A Peruvian Deelite
Date of Birth: June 22, 2006 - ILR # 268995
Strawberry is a very pretty paint suri girl with supper silky locks. Her sire, LW Strawberry Field was syndicated for $ 100,000. A pretty strong indicator that breeders would invest in his offspring. With Strawberry's strong genetics (both parents suri) we anticipated that her crias will be of great value in helping us achieve our long range breeding goals.We have bred Strawberry for a 2015 cria in hopes of producing a 'very special' little one to grace our fields.
Strawberry's first cria apparently was stepped on in the barn at her former owners farm. So found deceased. She came to us bred but her cria was born prematurely and did not survive. Bred her again but found a premature cria in the snow frozen. Would have been about 5-6 months in gestation as the time of birth. We don't know for sure but we suspected it wasStrawberry's baby.
We are eagerly awaiting a cria from Strawberry this spring. We believe she is pregnant. If her expected cria is born prematurely and does not survive she will go into retirement from the nursery. I am sure many breeders have experienced this - not all Llamas have a successful breeding career. Keep your fingers crossed.
