I just skirted this guy’s 2021 fleece, and I have to say I still love him! I love his fleece and I love his boxy frame. And, I definitely love his personality. But we have too many males, and while we absolutely love Deimos, we have two other boys with similar genetics, so he’s for sale. His first crias will arrive in 2021 and he’s eager to keep working. He has a uniform and consistent fleece, with crimp and character from skin to tip. He also has excellent density. He has a stunningly beautifu...

It’s a light fawn male!

Bidding Info

Description

For a 13 year old, I think Tanzie is one of the most beautiful girls in the pasture. She's a really sweet girl out of MFI Peruvian Jericho, a powerhouse herdsire with almost 300 offspring. Those offspring have more than 100 Championships - Tanzie has five of those Color Championships under her belt. Jericho's offspring include the likes of Majestic Peruvian Jeremiah. His descendants are amazing, and some very successful farms owe that success to these males! These genetic lines offer lasting fineness and amazing fleece qualities.

Tanzie just delivered a beautiful light fawn male cria on 5/23/21. His fleece is about as fine as it comes—and extremely bright. We can’t wait to see how he develops, but we’re thinking this one’s going to be pretty darn nice! We’re currently thinking about whether to breed her back to Deimos, or to cross her for another stellar match. We’d consider selling her as a 3-in-1, so let us know if you’d like to weigh in on that decision.

Tanzie's been bred to MMFA Freestyle's Deimos (ultrasound positive on 10/14/20). Deimos 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! He exhibits virtually no guard hairs 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.

Deimos's sire, 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.

Note: Interested? Please give us a call to discuss. Special pricing available for multiple alpaca purchases. We prefer to sell Tanzie to a farm already having prior experience with alpacas. However, we are ready and willing to mentor new alpaca owners -- as long as you understand that she must be part of a herd (which means a minimum of 3 alpacas, and preferably 5 or more).
