EPD stands for Expected Progeny Difference. It basically means that animals with a good EPD have an excellent chance of replicating their favorable traits in their offspring. We have two born here at Ideuma Creek in 2015 that are in the top 1% EPDs for all of the alpacas in the entire country! We're so proud of both Accoyo Aviator & Accoyo Zuzu!

Meet Simplicity. It is not a coincidence that she was born a week after Thoreau! Of course, I had to at least skim through Walden after revisiting the importance this book had in my 50 years of life. The book's theme of simplicity has been a constant inspiration to me. Penny and Grey Matter are the mommy and daddy to this beautiful, high energy little girl who I have a feeling with not be so simple to halter train! "Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity, and I may say innocence, with Nature herself."...
Here at Ideuma Creek we take the Summer Olympics very seriously. As you can see from the picture above Celesta and her cria have almost perfected their synchronized scratching routine.
