Jacob is easily the largest of our male alpacas. He's very aware that he is THE BOSS and feels he's there to impress the ladies. Jacob likes showing himslef off to the girls as this photo shows. He will be a husband for two of our girls this year - both Manette and Barbara will be mated to him - at different times so hopefully we will see his offspring next year.
Jacob has a very fine fleece which came in at 18 and 19 microns in his first and second year respectively. In the show ring he did well to come 3rd and 4th at shows last year and in April this year.
He likes to take carrots from your hand and is great to lead with the headcollar and rope so you can take him anywhere.
However on the downside he is a bully and often picks fights with Joseph, who has even lost a tooth in one of their fights.
