Description

Wow! We had been hoping for all female crias this year, but Man in the Moon's Prometheus is very likely to be a male alpaca worth having. He's an eye-catching light fawn male out of Sunset Hills Zagato & WP Elite Delilah -- what a pedigree! At 5 weeks old, it's clear that his fleece is developing into something to behold -- density, fineness, and tight little crimpy curls throughout. At 2 months, his fleece shot is above. At 4 months old, it's clear that Prometheus is a stand-out; at MAPACA, he took Blue!

Prometheus' herdsire, Sunset Hills Zagato, is highly decorated in the show ring winning multiple championships and two Judge's Choice awards. His fleece is soft, dense and spectacular with high frequency, high amplitude crimp structure. His conformation, stellar! Royal Fawn and Zephyrus would be proud to have him carry on their legacy....and he's doing a wonderful job, as evidenced by Prometheus and his siblings that are on the ground so far -- all show worthy and winning ribbons!

Prometheus' dam, WP Elite Delilah, also carries an amazing fleece, so it's no wonder that Prometheus has inherited the density, fineness, and bundles readily apparent in both of his parents. Delilah is out of another renowned herdsire, The Elite Maximus, who was a multiple Get of Sire champion and champion himself. At 13 years old (2014), The Elite Maximus held a histogram of less than 19 microns! And that fineness was incredibly uniform, with a comfort factor of close to 100%. Wow!!

Prometheus will play a prominent role in our 2017 show string...but, at the same time, we'll entertain any offers should you want him to be in yours. This boy is destined for herdsire row -- no doubt about it!

Awards

Prometheus is a shew in for our 2017 show string! He has stellar conformation & fleece characteristics.
