Description

For a brief time, Mira sells with her spectacular white female cria that was born on 7/8/18. Her cria, Ankaa, is out of our white 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion, Man in the Moon's Peruvian pGanymede. His show record and skin biopsy results indicate that he possesses strong and desirable fiber traits that he's likely to pass to his offspring...and, that he did!

The first thing we can tell about this cria is that her solid white fleece has enormous character with a beautiful crimp and bundling. In comparing this cria's fleece to Mira's as a cria, It appears that Ganymede has added an extra dose of organization, character, consistency, and fineness. Mira has solid bone, excellent fleece coverage, brightness, great density, very good staple length, and a soft handle.

Mira's sire, Patagonia's Lennox, is a well known and sought after multi-Color Champion herdsire, and with 274 registered offspring to date (2/2017), he has produced more champions than any other sire at Patagonia Estates. His sire is one of the direct Chilean imports, Danko.

Mira's dam is also out of Patagonia Estates' program and is one of our foundation females. She's a ribbon winner in some of the toughest shows in the country. She has a beautiful long-stapled, uniform and dense fleece from topknot to toes, bringing the genetics of Snowmass Nova, 5Peruvian Chaccu, Peruvian Bueno, and PPeruvian Caligula.

Mira is also included in our COLOR SALE! MMFA is going light, with a focus on white and light alpacas, so our alpacas of color, or deep color genetics, are on sale. Please come to the farm and take a look!
