Description

We purchased MFI's & KVR's Mint Mo Money -- together with our friends Wayne and Susan Robinson of Emelise Alpacas -- at the 2014 Breeders Choice sale at Magical Farms. Though in all honesty we hadn't gone to that final ever Breeders Choice thinking that we would be bidding on a male alpaca, Mo's fleece was so compelling to us that we figured we'd take a chance. There is always some risk in buying an alpaca that is not yet mature. We liken it to sports teams drafting 18 year old kids: while it is possible to project their possible upside based upon some markers that we've learned to recognize, there is *never* a guarantee that the animal in question will ultimately fulfill its potential. If it was too easy, it really wouldn't be any fun, right?

Now, having gone through the 2015 spring show season though, it's safe to say that we all (CCNF and Emelise) feel a bit like the cats that ate the canary. Though perhaps a touch high in his hind end at the time he first arrived here, Mo came home to CCNF last fall and after six months or so of eating good Vermont hay and marching up and down the mountainside here on Mt. Ascutney, he really filled out into a stunning young male. Guess what? The fleece held up too.

The grandson of the legendary Majestic Peruvian Jeremiah, we will be able to cross Mo in with the vast majority of our white/light herd (our Precocious daughters being an obvious exception). Amongst other things, his genetics will represent the first major infusion of El NiƱo (Caligula and Sunipani) and Titan blood into our breeding program, something which we are pretty excited about!

Though Mo was a bit of a, ahem, late bloomer with his breeding technique, several members of of his first generation of crias are now slated to play very important roles in our breeding program (not the least of which is his son CCNF Snow King, a full-fledged Herdsire) going forward.
