Diamond's white female cria out of Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede arrived on 10/28/20 and we think this new little girl will be something quite amazing! Her fleece already looks spectacular -- as we thought it would. We have named her Maia...see more in her profile below.

Description

Maia is the first offspring of her dam, Diamond, and her sire is the 15X Banner winning, AOA National Supreme Champion, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede. We’re extremely pleased with what we see!

Maia's fleece has abundant character, brightness, and fineness; and we look forward to seeing how this fleece further develops as she grows. Her conformation is looking excellent and her frame is already boxy and upright with straight legs and a great bite. We're just starting to see more of her personality come out -- she's curious and sweet!

There's no doubt in our minds that Maia will be a very fine foundation female and that she'll be on our show string once she is weaned.
Come take a look at her -- we're sure you'll agree!

Maia'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!"

Maia's dam is from the well known white breeding program, Heather's Acre Alpaca Farm, and her superlative genetics run deep. Maia's dam comes from great Accoyo's such as Vengador, Pucara, Odyssey, Quechua, Accoyocusani and Aga Khan. Her sire yields the Alianza greats such as Bueno, Predictor, Royal Fawn and Zephyrus; as well as more Accoyo greatness.

Maia’s fleece is so curly that it was downright difficult to get a fleece shot! We'll try to get another soon.


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