Description

MMFA Freestyle's Deimos earned a spot in our 2017/18 show string, and he has matured beautifully. He has a highly uniform and consistent fleece, with crimp and character from skin to tip, along with very good bundling and fineness. He also has amazing conformation (he is very boxy) and excellent density. He has a stunningly beautiful head style and strong substance of bone on a compact frame. He's a gorgeous guy...to say the least! His 2018 histogram has remained almost unchanged from his 2017 histogram, so we expect he will stay fine and uniform.

Deimos's herdsire, TGF Freestyle, was part of the AOA Supreme Championship class of 2016, and he has an unbelievable pedigree. His sire, Matrix Majesty has won the Futurity Herdsire of the Year award for 2011, 2013 and 2014. It appears that TGF Freestyle and Deimos' dam, Estates Keltic Lass, have passed their positive assets on -- solid conformation and a very soft, bright, uniform fleece that is full of crimp and character. His dam, Estates Keltic Lass, is also quite a gal...coming with superior genetics that boast of extreme fineness with retained fineness and soft handle. She is the daughter of Snowmass Nova’s Galaxy, and she has Bueno, Casanova, Caligula and Chaccu in her pedigree.

At just over 6 months and with the cria tips still on, Deimos won 3rd Place at the 2017 MAPACA Small Breeders Jubilee. He took 3rd at 2017 Empire and 4th at NEAOBA with EXTREMELY competitive classes. He took 2nd at 2017 VAOBA right behind the Color Champion! and, 2nd right behind RC at 2018 Carolina Alpaca Celebration. At 2018 Southern Select, Jude Anderson lined her selections up and commended the class for being so exceptional. She indicated that all of the fleeces were remarkable, and that her placement was based on how far down the extremities the fleece character carried....so, Deimos has amazing fleece. Then, at 2018 Mid-Atlantic Gala, Deimos took a blue and Best Bred & Owned with quite a few laudatory comments from the Judge!

Full interest is available, but we'd be happy to keep Deimos on our herdsire row. There's just one little catch -- MMFA is breeding for light and white now, so we really shouldn't!...Please come look at him and make an offer!

Note: Special pricing available for multiple alpaca purchases. Stud service includes 60 days board; $3/day thereafter.
