ARI# 32513882 | DOB: 5/17/2013
We purchased this gorgeous girl at the 2014 Double O Good Auction. She was a head turner then, and continues to be one of the most "showy" females in our herd. Keltie has been exposed to AOV Enterprising Encore for her Fall 2020 cria. Encore's a Champion medium fawn male with a black recessive gene, and has TOP 2% Standard Deviation EPD's! Encore has now produced champions in White and Fawn. Encore produces BLACK to white! He carries a shiny DENSE and well-defined crimped fleece. He is also a v...

"This male shows extremely strong fiber traits that should be passed to his offspring...Bred to top notch females, you should expect many champions." -- Comments from Dr. Norm Evans' biopsy report

Description

Ultrasound confirmed positive on 9/9/19...to GANYMEDE. Ganymede's show record and skin biopsy results indicate that he possesses strong and desirable fiber traits that he's likely to pass to his offspring...and, he's doing just that! Mira's first cria, Ganymede's Ankaa of MMFA (SOLD), is a solid white female with fleece that has beautiful crimp and bundling. Mira's dam, Keltie, delivered a cria out of Ganymede in Spring 2019 that has incredible fleece architecture. You can see both of these female offspring, as well as several other offspring of Ganymede's at the 2019 VAOBA Expo Show.

Mira has solid bone, excellent fleece coverage, brightness, great density, and a very good staple length. She's also proven to be an attentive mom, and an easy birther with plenty of milk.

Mira's sire, Patagonia's Lennox, is a well known and sought after multi-Color Champion herdsire, and with 274 registered offspring to date (2/2017), he has produced more champions than any other sire at Patagonia Estates. His sire is one of the direct Chilean imports, Danko. Mira's dam brings the genetics of Snowmass Nova, 5Peruvian Chaccu, Peruvian Bueno, and PPeruvian Caligula.

Mira's service sire, GANYMEDE, is a phenomenal male. Norm Johnson had this to say about him: "This male shows extremely strong fiber traits that should be passed to his offspring...Bred to top notch females, you should expect many champions." -- Comments from biopsy report completed at 30 months of age (see more on Ganymede's web page). He is the 2017 AOA National Light Male Supreme Champion! 4X Judge's Choice + 11X Color Champion + 1X Best Bred & Owned at 29 months old & breeding!

Full disclosure: Mira already sold once, but we traded her back. Mira can be difficult, and apparently she knows how to push the limits. Not recommended for first time alpaca owners, but she'll certainly fit into a well established program...and she makes good babies. If you are new to alpacas, we can assist you in finding a substitute from our herd for Mira with great package deal pricing.

MMFA has refined its focus to specializing in fawn, light and white alpacas, so now is your chance to purchase any of our quality alpacas with darker color genetics at a very reasonable price.
