ARI# 32757361 | DOB: 9/12/2013
This girl is at the top of her class! Open up that fleece and it is simply stunning! It has a tight crimp style that is fine and extremely uniform with excellent definition and brightness. Her fiber is dense with a long staple. This is one that will break my heart to sell...she's one of our best and sweetest.

The judge had to make a "sandwich" to compare Charice to the blue ribbon winner before making her final decision at VAOBA. It was that close --- and Charice got 2nd place at the stiff 2...

Description

MMFA has recently decided to focus on a light and white breeding program, so we are offering Janusz at a bargain basement price. And you can register him with full breeding rights!

Janusz (pronounced "Yon-Us") is a beautiful boy - outstanding confirmation, fleece, and vigor right out of the gate...His dam, WP Platinum Charice, is a gorgeous light silver gray female with some impressive genetics and extremely nice fleece. Take a look at Janusz' certificate -- a lot of very well-known herdsires in his lineage, heavy with Snowmass genetics, particularly on the sire's side. Quite a lot of gray color on the dam's side, with well-known Dark Shaddow and Snowmass Incan Rose.

Janusz has excellent phenotype, genotype, and fleece --- with consistency in micron and crimp. His fleece has very good brightness, uniformity and length. We think he can actually still be shown for the 2018/19 season and be competitive. We pulled him from the Spring 2018 season due to fiber break (which has been fully resolved). His 2018 histogram was taken with only 10 months growth, so his actual staple length is quite good.

Janusz' 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 Janusz. On the dam's side, Hemingway, NWA LTD Predictor, Sir Peruvian Accoyo Odyssey, and Heather's Acre Accoyo Sirius.


Note: Janusz is 15/16th Peruvian and 1/16th Chilean
