Bidding Info


Bruno took the Blue Ribbon at his first show, the 2016 Carolina Alpaca Celebration, under Judge Amanda Vandenbosh. His first cria arrived 7/25/18 - a light fawn little girl who has wonderfully fine fleece that almost glows! Much to our surprise, his second cria is a fabulous white male -- out of our brown female, ELK Titan's Clash Dixie Girl. Upon closer examination, both have notable whites in their pedigrees.

Bruno's a very nice boy out of Verticase's Vector and one of MMFA's best dams, Raina. He is phenotypically beautiful! His pedigree is also stacked with a who's who of alpaca greats. Bruno has great face and leg coverage, and very few guard hairs -- and the ones he does have are right where they're supposed to be! His fleece has a medium crimp style, a long staple length, an excellent soft handle, and fineness (2016 AFD 17.4 -- in dark brown! 2017 AFD 20.1; 2018 AFD 21.1). Just skirted his 2018 blanket and it is amazing -- hardly had to remove a thing, as he just doesn't have much guard hair at all.

At the 2017 TXOLAN show, the judge had great things to say about Bruno's fleece and conformation. She stated that his density put him in 3rd place (out of 10), and upon inspection of the two animals placed above him, we concede that his density was not as great. But we also contend that as he matures, he'll maintain his fineness, lack of guard hair, staple length, and uniformity. His density relative to his fineness is pretty darn good!

At the AOA National Show, we had him evaluated by Judge Sara Jane McClellan. He has many great qualities, including uniformity in micron and consistency across his blanket. He has very good brightness and his primary and secondary fibers are very close in micron, which lends to a very soft handle. His staple length is very good...She indicated that he is definitely an above-average male and he has so many good qualities that he can easily be retained as a breeding male.

His sire, WP Verticase's Vector's lineage has Snowmass Quechua line on the top and Snowmass Nova line on the bottom. Vector's sire, WP Verticase, was a multi-champion white male known for his lingering fineness and quite in demand as a herdsire in the alpaca world. Excellent conformation and these incredible fleece characteristics have been passed down to many of his award-winning offspring, including Man in the Moon's Celestial Bruno. On the dam's side, Hemingway, NWA LTD Predictor, Sir Peruvian Accoyo Odyssey, and Heather's Acre Accoyo Sirius.
