Description

Phenomenal girl...All we can say is Wow! She is better than we could have dreamed! She produced her first cria on 10/16/20 from a breeding with Ganymede, the 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion, and 4X Judges Choice male...and it’s a white female that we’ve decided to name Adhara. Adhara is a star in the constellation Canus Majora and her fleece looks amazing already. We have exposed Venus back to Ganymede for an encore performance and she ultrasounded positive on March 17, 2021!

MMFA Venus Rising started her show career at the 2018 Showtacular/ NEAOBA/ Empire, and she walked away with two Reserve Color Championships--one of them in front of a Snowmass female and the other right behind CCNF! At the 2019 Heart of Virginia, she walked away with a full Color Championship in front of a beautiful Stillmeadow female. Kevin O'Leary said she is the "total package." She has absolutely stunning fleece. It has staple length, true matchstick bundling, incredible character, fineness, uniformity, and absolutely wonderful handle -- and, there's a lot of it!

Venus is out of one of our top stud females, WP Elite Delilah, who is out of The Elite Maximus. Delilah is maintaining an 18 micron AFD at 5 years old! Venus' sire is none other than Snowmass Legend Rising, a multi-champion white male who garnered 4X Judges Choice awards. The sad news is that he unexpectedly passed in the Fall of 2018--much, much too soon.

Though Venus is not for sale at this time (unless you offer some ungodly amount of money, of course!), her beautiful Fall 2020 cria, Adhara, is for sale -- currently at an extremely reasonable price (which will undoubtedly go up once she hits the show circuit)! If you wish to purchase Adhara, financing is available with 25% down upon contract signing and the remainder due in three equal quarterly payments. Cria comes with standard health and reproductive guarantees. Agistment included until weaned plus 60 days.


Note: MMFA offers its best pricing on packages of three or more alpacas. Let us know what you're looking for and we can help you find the right package within your budget.
