Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede

Huacaya, Herdsire (Male), Proven, White, Full Peruvian
ARI# 35230793 | DOB: 6/8/2015
He's still 18 microns and his fleece is still beautiful...and he’s passing down the uniformity as demonstrated by Championships of his offspring! 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 2021 crias!

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

Bidding Info


WOW! One fleece shot is on the first day and the other taken in early January 2021! As has been true of each of her dam's crias, Arielle was a standout right from the beginning, and as her fleece develops it continues to get better and better -- just like her sire's did...We expect Arielle to be an outstanding foundation female with her sire, Ganymede, being a 4X Judges Choice, including the 2017 AOA National Light Male Supreme Champion, and her dam being a stellar offspring of The Elite Maximus.

Arielle's fleece is fine and consistent with very good staple length. (She was cria shorn on 7/9/20.) Her fleece character and bundling is just now starting to develop. She has great conformation and she's well grown for her age with a beautiful head style. We're quite certain Arielle will be capable of throwing color, just as her sire has. She has one fawn spot at her right front armpit. We can't wait to show this girl off! Arielle will make her debut at the 2021 Buckeye Alpaca Show in late March. Come take a peek at her!

Arielle’s dam, WP Elite Delilah, has lasting fineness and is maintaining a fleece to die for even after producing 4 crias ( all blue ribbon and Champion winners) for us. Her fleece still looks beautiful and carries a very good length. We’re sure Arielle will be yet another ribbon producer that maintains a beautiful fleece as she matures and produces her own champions!

Arielle's sire, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede, championed at every show he attended from 10 months old on. He achieved 15 banners, including 4 Judges Choice which culminated with the 2017 AOA National Supreme Championship -- he's an amazing male, and he's producing champions! His fleece is still beautiful and consistent at 18.3 microns as a breeding male, with uniformity across his blanket and extending down into his belly and legs. Judges repeatedly said, "...he is the SAME all over!"

Arielle is a sweet girl to take your breeding program to the next level! She'll definitely be at the next show we attend -- hopefully Buckeye. We have our fingers crossed that Covid will start settling down soon. We welcome you to come see her on the farm if you'd like. Just give us a call, or send us a text or email.

Arielle comes with a breeding of your choice to any solely owned herdsire at time of purchase.

Note: MMFA offers our best pricing for a package of 3 or more alpacas.
