12/27/2019 Today was a sad day on the farm. We lost this beautiful gem - she was truly our favorite girl. Alivia gave us three beautiful girls and they are her legacy. We'll keep the one we still own...MMFA Elite Maxine.

Alivia is a prime example of a breeding dam that has retained a high quality uniform fleece well into her mature years. With her uniformity and Vicuna coloring, she is a rare gem that is a fantastic addition to our foundation herd. Her crias are absolutely beautiful---each m...

Description

Congrats to Amanda, Trae & Ady! What a sweet and lovely girl! First impressions are that this little white female is going to be amazing! Strong bone, fine bright fleece, density and wonderful crimpy cria curls! This one was hard to part with for sure!

Her dam, SA Peruvian Alivia, is one of our favorites on the farm, and this little girl is quickly falling into the same category. Alivia is out of the great SA Peruvian Apollo, an impact herdsire with more than 180 registered offspring and hundreds of descendants from there. He obviously received and passed on the amazing genetics of his parents, PPPeruvian Royal Fawn 6014 and PPPeruvian Aphrodite 5070, both direct imports that have contributed greatly to the positive progression of the alpaca industry today.

Summer's incredible herdsire, 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, we're pretty sure he's passing it on! Ganymede has an advanced elite fleece, indeed, and a gorgeous, boxy conformation. Judges called it early on...and he achieved top honors at the 2017 AOA National Show as the Supreme Champion Light Huacaya Male, including the White Invited Male Color Championship, bringing his total to 11X Color Championships and 4X Judges Choice awards (PAOBA, CABO, TxOLAN, Nationals)...a Banner for every show he attended in the 2016/2017 show season!

Ganymede has an amazing fleece with an unbelievable structure and density. He exhibits a tight little zipper crimp with extreme uniformity, matchstick bundling, brightness and fineness across his fleece...the character lasting well down into his legs and belly. This is what the Judges have said:
"his fleece is the same from skin to tip, back to front, all over..."
...he is "the same...all over."
This is exactly what you want to hear.
