Ganymede is standing stud at MMFA from May 25 until the end of November, and then he'll be traveling to Texas! Don't miss this opportunity to purchase a breeding. With cria on the ground, we've already seen what he can do, and it is truly amazing! "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 Evans' biopsy report He is the 2017 AOA National Light Male Supreme Champion! 4X Judge's Choice + 11X Color Champion + 1X Best Bred & Owned at 29 months old & breeding! We are thrilled, humbled, and honored to have this magnificent young male...You've just got to see his fleece -- it's the same ALL over! Ganymede has an advanced elite fleece, indeed, and a gorgeous, boxy conformation! Judges called it early on...and he has achieved top honors at the 2017 AOA National Show as the Supreme Champion Light Huacaya Male, including the White Invited Male Color Championship, bringing his total to 12X Banners and 4X Judges Choice awards (PAOBA, CABO, TxOLAN, Nationals)...a Banner for every show he attended in the 2016/2017 show season! Ganymede has an amazing fleece with an unbelievable structure and density. He exhibits a tight little zipper crimp with extreme uniformity, matchstick bundling, brightness and fineness across his fleece...the character lasting well down into his legs and belly. This is what the Judges have said: "his fleece is the same from skin to tip, back to front, all over..." ...he is "the same...all over." This is exactly what you want to hear. "clear winner" in the light Color Championship at the tough 2016 NEAOBA and at 2016 Empire -- beating out offspring of some of the most venerated herdsires in the country. "really well balanced and showy male, with overall stature and conformation, correct in his movement, with lovely density, good expression of character thr
