Our Exciting Result at the recent Colourbration show
Nova Supreme Brown Colourbration 2013
Due to our very Quiet Breeding program this previous 12 months we had no Juniors to exhibit so .. As I do believe that a Serious Breeder should Show the Public their current Stock,
The question Was... Who do we Take to the Premier Colour Show here in WA.. ???
Looking out in my Paddock my Eye is drawn to Nova'
She is a beautiful Huacaya Female and has 3 live cria and unfortunately a Set of Twins that did not survive, so as she is now empty .. Why Not..
And what a Fabulous Result...
Supreme Champion Brown.. and in front of her beautiful Son, Katydid Bossanova the Supreme last year...
Huge savings on this Quality of 5 Suri females
Huge Savings on this group of Suri Females
We are reluctant but it is necessary...
We have a package of very nice Quality Suri females that are now for sale .. please make an offer as they must go...
These girls are various ages, all in good health and are of breeding Age.
Great to start a herd or as an extension of to add to existing genetics. They carry a nucleus of exciting Bloodlines .. a great opportunity..

Something Different to Have in our Introduction to our Website...
We have needed to find a new Image for our Stud ...
and as we do have some very Glamorous and Appealing Alpacas thought if we could find a photographer that could capture the "look" of some of our animals it certainly might Help..
I think Diana has done just that!!!
We are intending to slowly add to our Site, more of her photos , so keep watching...
Katydid Alpaca Stud is found in the Picturesque Foothills ,only 55 K's East of Perth , Western Australia
We are breeders of both types of Alpaca, Suri and Huacaya, although we have specialised in the Rare and Unusual "Suri" Coloured and White
At Katydid our breeding program produces a range of quality alpacas in different colours and is producing award-winning animals with excellent conformation and outstanding fleece.
Alpacas are a domesticated member of the camelid family, and along with Llamas, Guanacos and Vicunas, are native to South America. The main characteristic of the Alpaca is the fleece, which is commonly called "Fibre of the Gods.
Alpacas can be separated into two types "Suri" and "Huacaya".
The main difference between the Suri and the Huacaya is the Fleece type. The Huacaya exhibits a fluffy and dense fleece that stands away from the body.
The Suri has a completely different style that falls down from the body in dreadlocks, Sometimes referred to as "Curtains of Silk"and leaving the backbone partly exposed.
The Suri fleece is extremely lustrous with a beautiful silky handle

Katydid Treasure's Indiana... Whiteman Show WA April 2012
Not long after I became addicted to "Alpaca" I discovered the virtues of the Beautiful Silken Suri , and decided to Specialise in the Suri type.
At the time there were very few Suris in WA, if any, so I looked for a way to access a number of Females. as a reult I leased a very good male and that was our beginning… of the Katydid Suri Addition…
Our Huacayas were coming on nicely and we have continued to breed selectively using only the proven lines to keep up our Quality
Our herd is of significant quality as our results demonstrate, and we are continuously striving to improve by introducing more Accoyo genetics
Recently have intoduced Superior Bloodlines thru Top Quality boys bred from well known Sires , Suris: T'pito, Bosisto, and El Cordoba, the progeny from these males are starting to come thru now... and Huacayas: Iceman and Challenger
As a result we are now able to offer selected Alpacas , Suri and Huacaya, and if you are looking for information about the Animals or Industry please feel free to call as we love talking “Alpaca” and welcome farm visits, just a call to let us know …
Our Aim is to breed Alpacas that are true to type with sound conformation as this gives the animal health and strength, together with the ability to grow fleece of Fineness, Density and Handle , from both types,
