Meet the reigning crown prince of CCNF. Show record aside, at the time he was born, Elixir was probably the best male alpaca our breeding program had produced in 16 years. Good thing too, as he and his paternal siblings had some mighty big shoes that we were asking them to fill in the years ahead. The son of three time Futurity Herdsire of the Year, Snowmass Elite Legend, and our multi-Champion Archangel daughter, CCNF Ascension, Elixir when conceived as a concept on paper was supposed to be go...

Description

Where to begin? While we obviously love this guy’s sire, CCNF Elixir - so much of what makes CCNF Moonstalker special comes as least as much from his maternal side as from his sire. By way of introduction…Moonstalker’s dam, CCNF Claire de Lune, is the youngest of 4 powerful and potent full siblings (all out of CCNF Moonlight and sired by Snowmass Matrix Majesty) we have in our breeding program: 1. The oldest sister, Moonbeam, when bred to Elixir (there will be a theme here) produced CCNF Valyria, who was the Judges’ Choice Female Huacaya at the Futurity in both 2018 and 2019 and her full sister, CCNF Eclipse; 2. The next oldest sister, CCNF Luna Majesty, also bred to Elixir (see, theme), has produced in consecutive years CCNF Sovereign-Legacy (2018 Futurity JC Male, now a working Herdsire here in our program), CCNF Nymeria (2019 AOA Supreme Champion Dark Female Huacaya), CCNF Triumvirate (as yet unshown due to the pandemic), and a very nice but as of now, unnamed kid brother born in June of 2020; 4. Claire de Lune's full brother, CCNF Moonraker, who is likewise a working Herdsire here in our program, just had HIS first daughter, CCNF Maid Marian, win the Fawn Female Championship at the 2020 AOA National Fleece Show! Look, we know that’s a lot to take in but the bottom line is the that the genetics just work a lot more often than not and the cross of the daughters of CCNF Moonlight with Elixir is so potent that we’ve pursued it and riffed on it for over 5 years now. In fact all things being equal, in 2021 as many as *seven* different female members of that maternal line will have crias born here at CCNF. Do you think we value that family line? The track record rather speaks for itself.

Though closer in color to his 3x Futurity Herdsire of the Year sire (Elixir is a dorsal beige) than his dam (Claire is MF), Moonstalker is just the latest of that greater family and genetic cross to come out to play and he most certainly has the goods to back up that rep, possessing a bright, fine, and uniform fleece all on a conformationally correct frame. Slated to be a member of our spring 2020 show team before the Futurity show was scrubbed, he will certainly be in contention whenever the halter show circuit opens up again, the only question being whether or not he is still ours?! Like all young males we sell, CCNF Moonstalker is of course sold with full reproductive guarantees.
