Papa's Alpacas and Double O Good have decided to share our co-ownership of Night Dreamer with: "The MoLi Ranch" in Powhatan, VA.
Matrix's Night Dreamer will be spending his summers in Virginia and the Fall and Spring months with us here in Georgia. As our very first Matrix son...and we could not be more pleased. Night Dreamer is a True Black male out of a Bay Black Dam, out of Rayo Del Sol and 4 Peruvian Legacy.
His Sire, of course, Snowmass Matrix with all of his Quechua lineage really needs no explanation but in case you don't know here is a bit of his legend:
Snowmass Matrix is truly one in a million. The fact is this stud has the Premier genetics for high curvature and ultimate fineness.
He is a compact robust and well proportioned stud, perfect overall score in frame, bite, body, and reproductive anatomy. He has a fleece that extends its superior qualities over his entire frame.
WITH ONLY 11 ENTRIES HE TOOK RESERVE HERDSIRE OF THE YEAR IN US FUTURITY 2008 IN BOTH LIGHT AND COLOR.
THE CONSISTENCY OF EXCELLENCE IN HIS PROGENY IS BEYOND REFUTE.
In 2009 Matrix won Dark Herdsire of the Year, Reserve Light Herdsire of the Year and First in Get of Sire at The Futurity. In 2010 he won Reserve Dark Herdsire of the Year as well.
Matrix has what we call a Merino x Vicuna style of crimp. He has a bit more organization in the expression of crimp than a true vicuna but a very high frequency of crimp indicative in the vicuna qualities. Most importantly this stud exhibits an extreme fineness, brightness, and consistency of fineness which is seen in the extension into extremities(hip, belly, shoulder neck and head). He has held these qualities as he has aged which is exactly what we are looking and breeding for.
