Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede

Huacaya, Herdsire (Male), Proven, White, Full Peruvian
ARI# 35230793 | DOB: 6/8/2015
The Championships of his offspring are beginning to add up - including a 2x 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...

TWF Peruvian Sarafina 

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...

Sweet Young Male!

Bidding Info


Aries is a very sweet and pleasing young male and he's already well grown for his age. Due to his size and maturity, he was able to be weaned well before he hit 6 months of age, and he never looked back. His fleece and confirmation are looking very good.

The cross between Ganymede and Sarafina has done very well - with his full sister, Ayla, having just won a Color Championship in fawn at her first show as a young yearling! Aries is likely to be a very nice male.

While we were hopeful that Aries would carry all of the same fleece as his older sister -- and perhaps they're yet to be developed -- we've decided to let him go as a pet/fiber boy. We feel that the variation in micron that his fleece is exhibiting will preclude him from standing on herdsire row.

So...this pricing reflects a pet/fiber quality sale; however, we're willing to write in a clause that for additional cost, would allow the new owner to transition him to registered herdsire status at a later date, should they so desire.

Financing Terms

Standard industry contracts are used. Breeding quality alpacas come with reproductive and live birth guarantees. You may take possession of your alpacas once the down payment is received and the “contract for purchase” signed by both parties. Transfer of ownership with ARI will not occur until full payment is received. Financing is available with 25 - 33% down, with up to 24 monthly payments. Buyer must purchase full mortality insurance for alpaca and offspring, if any, naming Man in the Moon Farm LLC as beneficiary on balance due until paid in full. For individual purchases over $3000, significant discount for cash sales paid in 30 days. Special pricing often available for multiple alpaca purchases. Transportation responsibility of buyer. AUCTION & PACKAGED DEAL OFFERS: These are cash only unless different arrangements are made up front. No other discounts apply unless negotiated otherwise.
