He's still 18 microns! It's not too early to be thinking about your Spring 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!

3-in-1 with MB Female GANYMEDE cria!

ARI# 32441307 | DOB: 4/7/2010
Don't be fooled by the price on this 3-in-1 package. It reflects our need to thin the herd in anticipation of all of the crias we are expecting in 2020, and the fact that we are breeding for light and white alpacas. Caramela's medium brown female cria, Calypso, out of National Supreme Champion, GANYMEDE, was born on 10/16/19, and she's quite lovely (extremely fine and complete with black points!!). She's starting out with a "silky" fleece, just like her full sister, Dark Star, that was born in ...

Bidding Info


Love this spunky girl! She is filled with life and energy -- just like the star that she is. We count on her to put a smile on your face with her pronking...Her second fleece is looking amazing, and continues to improve with time, just like Ganymede's did. The judges have recognized the uniformity of her fleece across the blanket and into her extremities. You bet, we rebred Dark Star's dam, Caramela, right back to GANYMEDE! And Caramela delivered a love!y medium brown female.

When she's old enough, we'd suggest breeding Dark Star to Man in the Moon's Prometheus, or possibly Iceman if he's ready (see his webpage). Prometheus is a light fawn champion out of Sunset Hills Zagato and WP Elite Delilah, -- both carry and exhibit very strong fiber characteristics and powerhouse genetics with multiple amazing champion offspring. If you prefer to stay dark, please take a look at MMFA Freestyle's Deimos, a Matrix Majesty grandson with gorgeous confirmation and fleece.

Now a few words about her incredible herdsire, GANYMEDE: "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.

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!
