Lonicera Neva

March 05, 2015

Neva is a double-registered, half Bolivian – half Chilean true black who we call the ‘pop star’.  Ever since making her arrival at Ballintotas Alpacas, she has drawn the attention of visitors and her fellow alpacas.  She is our tallest alpaca, and with her graceful strut and confident air, she quickly commanded a top spot in our female pecking order.  Neva’s sire and dam are true black, from a lineage that has consistently produced black.  Her fleece is fine and uniform in colour and visitors often compare the sheen of her coat to ‘velvet’.  Neva is comfortable on the lead and very relaxed in new situations.  This makes her the obvious choice for off-site farm events and shows.
