ARI# 32513882 | DOB: 5/17/2013
We purchased this gorgeous girl at the 2014 Double O Good Auction. She was a head turner then, and continues to be one of the most "showy" females in our herd. Keltie comes with her current breeding, as well as a future breeding to ANY Man in the Moon Farm herdsire — including a new gorgeous multi-Champion herdsire (for which we’ll be announcing the purchase soon) that we think will be the perfect breeding for Keltie! For her current breeding she ultrasounded positive on March 17, 2021.

Description

MMFA Freestyle's Deimos 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...IMHO! His 2018 histogram remained almost unchanged from his 2017 histogram, so we expect he will stay fine and uniform. His 2019 histogram creeped up to 20.2/4.1/20.4, but that's still quite amazing and indicative of his superior genetic makeup! He exhibits virtually no guard hairs either and he's maintaining full coverage of his fiber all the way down to his toes, and right over his eyes, if we didn't trim it. Top that all off with a very pleasing personality - he coexists beautifully with our younger boys as a perfect gentleman!

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 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!

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! If sold, we will retain three additional breedings for ourselves.

We are now accepting breeding agreements for Spring 2021 with only $150 deposit. Don't miss this introductory fee -- it'll be more than worth it! Intro Breeding Fee includes up to 60 days agistment and only $3/day thereafter. Book your breeding now!
