ARI# 35230793 | DOB: 6/8/2015
He's still 18 microns and his fleece is still beautiful! It's not too early to be thinking about your Fall 2020 breedings! Ganymede is standing stud in Virginia from mid-May thru 1st week of December. His offspring thus far have been AMAZING! We also have quite a few females available that have been bred to GANYMEDE for 2020 crias!

"This male shows extremely strong fiber traits that should be passed to his offspring...Bred to top notch females, you should expect many champions." -- Comment...

ARI# 32441307 | DOB: 4/7/2010
Caramela has produced two beautiful females for us and she's currently bred to a Champion male out of Sunset Hills Zagato, Man in the Moon's Prometheus. We hope to capitalize on the exceptional staple length and lasting fineness of both, and the architecture we find so appealing in Prometheus' fleece.

Caramela's 2019 cria, Calypso (SOLD), was born on 10/16/19, and her fleece is very fine. She is medium brown complete with black points - quite a surprise to us!!. She started out with a "silky...

Bred to Zagato's Zumba!

Bidding Info


Dark Star is bred to Alpaca Palace Zagato's Zumba! He is the 2019 Futurity Fawn Male Champion & Futurity Judges Choice - a highly decorated multi-Champion male out of none other than Zagato, who has consistently stamped out some incredibly amazing offspring. (Ultrasound positive 8/5/20 & 10/14/20) Dark Star's sire is '17 AOA Nat'l Supreme Champion, GANYMEDE, so ya can't do much better than that for her future offspring!

The judges have recognized the uniformity of Dark Star's fleece across the blanket and into her extremities...her fleece continues to improve with time, just like Ganymede's did.

Now a few words about her herdsire, GANYMEDE:

Ganymede is the 2017 AOA National Light Male Supreme Champion! 4X Judge's Choice + 11X Color Champion + 1X Best Bred & Owned at 29 months old & breeding! His fleece is the same ALL over! And, he's passing it on!

"This male shows extremely strong fiber traits that should be passed to his offspring...Bred to top notch females, you should expect many champions." -- Comments from Dr. Norm Evans' biopsy report. Ganymede has an advanced elite fleece, indeed, and a gorgeous, boxy conformation.

We really hate to let her go with her future cria out of Zagato's Zumba, but we need to keep our herd on the smaller side, so we we reluctantly offer her for sale. If you're interested, please give us a call and we'll arrange for a visit.
