Description

This girl has incredible presence! As we transition our herd to light and white, we are offering this exceptional foundation female for your color program at a MUCH reduced price. And, Estates Keltic Lass has been bred to Man in the Moon's Peruvian GANYMEDE, the 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion & 4X Judges Choice recipient, for a Spring 2019 cria! (Ultrasound confirmed on 8/14/18 & 1/17/19). We are so excited about Keltie's breeding to Ganymede, we can hardly wait - we're hoping for a fawn and expecting nothing short of spectacular! GANYMEDE has shown that he can allow color to pass through.

Keltie has ribboned highly in some of the toughest shows in the country. She has a very pleasing body style with gorgeous conformation, excellent size, great head, and heavy bone. She has proven to be a very good mom, with easy birthing and plenty of milk. Keltic Lass has amazing genetics…the daughter of Snowmass Nova’s Galaxy who has incredible density and gorgeous head coverage. On her dams’ side, the genetics boast of extreme fineness with retained fineness and soft handle.

Keltie's offspring thus far have all been competitive in the show ring. We especially love her Deimos out of TGF Freestyle, who is a gorgeous light brown male that garnered 1st Place and Best Bred & Owned as a yearling (19 months old) at the 2018 MAPACA show. He's been in more than one halter class where the judge indicated that every alpaca that placed had excellent fineness, character, and density, and that it was an extremely tough decision on placement. We like him so much, that he's been added to our herdsire row. Her female offspring, Mira, out of the renowned Patagonia's Lennox also did well in her shows, and she has already produced a gorgeous female cria in 2018. Mira and her cria have been purchased and just left for their new farm. Mira's cria will be showing with her new owners in 2019.

Keltie'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!

We invite you to our farm to take a look at her in person. She's quite the head turner, and she'll undoubtedly add gorgeous conformation along with great fleece characteristics to her future offspring! Since we are refocusing our breeding program to white and light, we are also offering tremendous discounts on color package sales.

Note: Special pricing available for multiple alpaca purchases. Please ask about three or more alpacas to get the best pricing.
