Description

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 took first & Champion under Judge Jude Anderson at the 2013 NJ Classic, and 2nd in Fleece under Judge Wini Labreque at the 2013 Tennesee Waltz Fleece Show -- two of the best and toughest judges in the industry!

Of only 7 offspring, Encore has produced two multi-Champions and numerous blue ribbon winners! Encore produces BLACK to white! We expect this cria has an extremely high probability of being black...not exactly what MMFA is breeding for, but we strive to find the best match for every breeding -- SO HERE SHE IS FOR THOSE INTERESTED IN BLACK!!!

Encore carries a shiny DENSE and well-defined crimped fleece. He is also a very sweet male, and his temperament passes onto his progeny as does his excellent fiber characteristics! Encore is out of the well-known Accoyo America Enterprise.

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. We've come to love her quirky and inquisitive nature. 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 been competitive in the show ring. We especially love Keltie's 2017 male offspring, Deimos out of TGF Freestyle, who is a gorgeous dark fawn 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.

We invite you to our farm to take a look at Keltie in person. She's quite the head turner, and she'll undoubtedly add gorgeous conformation along with great fleece characteristics to her future offspring! She also has a fun and quirky personality.

Note: 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. Special pricing available for multiple alpaca purchases. See our package deal -- 3 Proven color females bred for show quality offspring -- an incredible value!
