The Championships of his offspring are beginning to add up - including a Judges Choice (fawn) female! See who's winning under the Awards section below. With relatively few offspring, we're seeing a lot of very positive results! Note: Auction price is for drive by. Agistment can be added...give us a call to arrange.

"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 Ev...

Hoping for a girl to breed back to GANY!

TWF Peruvian Sarafina

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Medium Fawn, Full Peruvian
ARI# 35275763 | DOB: 7/26/2014
Sarafina welcomed her 4th cria & 1st male cria on 10/3! We have named him Aries. More info soon...The combination of GANYMEDE and TWF Sarafina definitely works! So...we exposed Sarafina to Ganymede for a 3rd time and Aries didn't dissappoint (other than we were expecting another fawn girl)! If you are breeding for fiber that has amazing uniformity, consistency, lasting fineness, and is "the SAME all over!", this is the place to start. Sarafina's fleece, and the unmatched consistency of Ganymed...

Description

Thank you, Meadowgate Alpacas! Woot Woot! Love this Little Girl! We had consigned Ayla to the Parade of Champions Auction, but COVID interrupted that plan, so we're happy we've been able to see her mature...Ayla's well grown for her age and she's turning into a gorgeous girl with beautiful character to her fleece! She certainly didn’t let us down in her first halter show — receiving a First Place and Color Championship at the 2020 VAOBA Derby under Judge Amanda Vandenbosh!

See more info on her amazing herdsire, Ganymede, on his web page. He was the the 2017 AOA National Light Male Supreme Champion and is a 4x Judges Choice male! A Banner for every show he attended in the 2016/2017 show season! Ganymede has an advanced elite fleece, indeed, and a gorgeous, boxy conformation and with just a few offspring on the ground, he appears to be passing it on!

Ayla sells with a breeding to any MMFA solely owned herdsire.

GANYMEDE IS AN INCREDIBLE PACKAGE AND HE WAS VERY COMPETITIVE IN THE MOST DIFFICULT SPRING 2016 WHITE JUVIE MALE CLASS DESPITE HIS LATE SHEARING. EACH TIME HE'S SHOWN, HE'S GOTTEN THE ATTENTION OF THE JUDGE. HE IS ONE THAT POPS OUT IN THE CROWD...UPON CLOSE EXAMINATION, HE HAS IT ALL -- EXTREME UNIFORMITY, BRIGHTNESS, FINENESS, DENSITY, ETC. CARRYING DOWN INTO HIS BELLY, LEGS, HEAD.
IN HIS 3RD PLACE WINS, BOTH JUDGES WERE THRILLED WITH HIS FLEECE CHARACTER AND UNIFORMITY, AS WELL AS HIS OUTSTANDING CONFORMATION (VERY TYPEY OVERALL), AND STATED THAT THE MALES ABOVE HIM HAD SLIGHTLY FINER MICRON; HOWEVER, GANYMEDE'S GENETICS PUT HIM ON A TRAJECTORY OF LASTING FINENESS, AS EVIDENCED BY HIS 2019 FLEECE STATS!
