Welcome to NZ Black Magic Alpacas
‘The Magic of Black’
Our alpaca farm is located in North Canterbury New Zealand 55 klms north west of Christchurch. We have spectacular 360 degree views from the Alps to the Ocean.
After attending many shows on the south island of New Zealand, it became clear that there was a shortage of black alpacas around, so we decided to have a look overseas to see what we could bring into the black alpaca community of New Zealand. We owned a few black girls and we wanted something ‘special’ to breed with them.
I decided to go to Canchones Alpaca Stud in Victoria and select a male that would do that job. It was amazing to see hundreds of black alpacas in their paddocks, a truly spectacular sight !!!
After spending a few hours going through Canchones alpacas I soon realised that I was looking at some of the very best Elite Black Alpaca Genetics in the world.
With this going through my head and realising that maybe 1 stud male was not going to be enough of these elite black genetics heading for my farm in New Zealand we started looking at young females, intermediate females and of course we could not forget the older more experienced females.
When I left Canchones farm 2 days later NZ Black Magic Alpacas had purchased 13 black alpacas with outstanding elite genetics all stemming from full Peruvian dams and sires that Peter Kennedy had hand selected in Peru.
NZ Black Magic Alpacas have since added to the initial 13 with another 5 intermediate females and a stunning junior female. Currently 6 are being mated at Canchones and hopefully they will bring further ‘elite genetics’ with them with the purchase of Alpacaspecialist Crackerjack the son of Alpacaspecialist Picasso a well renowned outstanding black male.
NZ Black Magic Alpacas with the help of Robert Gane & Peter Kennedy’s knowledge were fortunate in being able to purchase some different ‘elite black genetics’ from the Softfoot Alpaca Stud in South Australia. A stunning male Softfoot Jeronimo, 2 females Alpacaspecialist Ima Lady Too & a full sister to Crackerjack being Softfoot Delfina.
NZ Black Magic Alpacas have also ventured into the Embryo Transfer (ET) program with Canchones. We currently have 5 embryos holding.
