Description

WP Elite Delilah will stay in our foundation herd...but there's always a price, right? She's one of the best out there, and her 2017 cria, Venus, is going to be a real showstopper. Her 2016 male cria is herdsire material. We have no doubt Delilah can produce the best of the best of the best based on her first two cria. Delilah has been bred to Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede. We can't wait to see what she'll produce next!

Delilah is a top notch dam with spectacular fleece! -- incredible uniformity of fineness, crimp, bundle, density and soft handle! Delilah's 3rd shearing had a Grade 1 Ultra Fine Royal Baby fleece with a comfort factor close to 100%, and she's maintaining that fineness!

Her October 2017 cria out of 4X Judge's Choice and multi-Champion, Snowmass Legend Rising, is better than we could have dreamed! All we can say is "Wow! This white female cria is probably the best we've seen thus far in our breeding program...she is just amazing." Her 4 wk fleece shot above.

Delilah's October 2016 offspring is a light fawn Champion male, Man in the Moon's Prometheus. He has a very fine fleece with a high frequency crimp structure, great density, and an exquisitely soft handle, and he is winning in the show ring. See his fleece shot on his web page.

Delilah is out of the renowned stud, The Elite Maximus. At 13 years old his 2014 histogram was less than 19 microns! And that fineness was incredibly uniform, with a comfort factor of close to 100%. Wow!! The Elite Maximus was one of those few animals to possess instant name recognition in the alpaca world. His reputation as a herdsire, and before that, in the show ring, was second to none. Sadly, The Elite Maximus suddenly passed away in the Fall of 2016. Delilah is one of his elite progeny.

If you are looking for the very best, Delilah's offspring are absolutely what you should consider...at least one of them, anyway!

Awards

Delilah's Show Record:
Third Place MABA Celebration 2014, MD (behind Champion & Reserve Champion!)
VAOBA Expo 2014, MD (Level IV, extremely competitive class of 12)
AOA Nationals 2015, NE
MAPACA Jubilee 2015, PA (Level V, class of 9)
Delilah has spectacular fleece. Judge's comments indicated that her placement below others in her class was due to less density than those above her. We can attest that she currently has amazing density and is maintaining her fineness, as a breeding female. Fawn classes are some of the toughest competition in the alpaca industry.

2017 MAPACA Jubilee - Judge Sharon Loner - LF Male Juvie (@ 6.4 months old!)
