Stillmeadow Farm Bella's Dream

Beautiful New Cria By Side - 4/27/21!

Stillmeadow Farm Bella's Dream

HuacayaFemaleWhite
AOA# DOB: 10/16/20164 yrs
We purchased "Dreamy" at the 2018 POC Auction because we loved what we saw in her amazing fleece, and we loved her genetics. Her fleece style is a great pairing with Ganymede's -- she was worth every penny! Dreamy delivered a gorgeous white male cria , Cosmos, on 5/11/20, out of GANYMEDE, and he was truly stunning right out of the box! With incredible definition to his zigzag fleece -- could already tell on day one that he was going to be really, really nice...and he championed at his first show at just over 6 months old! Dreamy's was bred right back to Ganymede for an encore and she produced another gorgeous white male cria on 4/27/21. We can’t wait for a full sister! Bella's Dream w...

Brookhollow's Tanzanite

5X Color Champion out of Jericho!

Brookhollow's Tanzanite

HuacayaFemale (bred)Dark Fawn
AOA# DOB: 4/10/200813 yrs
Tanzanite is a really sweet girl out of MFI Peruvian Jericho, a powerhouse herdsire with almost 300 offspring. Those offspring have more than 100 Championships - Tanzie has five of those Color Championships under her belt. Jericho's offspring include the likes of Majestic Peruvian Jeremiah. His descendants are amazing, and some very successful farms owe that success to these males! These genetic lines offer lasting fineness and amazing fleece qualities. Tanzie has been a very healthy girl; however, it did take some time for a pregnancy to hold (most likely because she hadn't been bred for some time). It finally did and she delivered a beautiful little male on 5/9/20. Unfortunately, he wa...

HuacayaHerdsire (Male)Dark Fawn
ARI# AOA# 35157595   DOB: 9/30/20164 yrs
I just skirted this guy’s 2021 fleece, and I have to say I still love him! I love his fleece and I love his boxy frame. And, I definitely love his personality. But we have too many males, and while we absolutely love Deimos, we have two other boys with similar genetics, so he’s for sale. His first crias will arrive in 2021 and he’s eager to keep working. He has a uniform and consistent fleece, with crimp and character from skin to tip. He also has excellent density. He has a stunningly beautiful head style and strong substance of bone on a compact frame, weighing in at approximately 150#. In 2021, he gave 11.3# fleece at shearing! He's a gorgeous guy...IMHO! His 2018 histogram remained a...

AOA# DOB: 8/30/20182 yrs
Dark Star is breeding to Alpaca Palace Zagato's Zumba! He is the 2019 Futurity Fawn Male Champion & Futurity Judges Choice - a highly decorated multi-Champion male out of none other than Zagato, who has consistently stamped out some incredibly amazing offspring. Dark Star's sire is the '17 AOA National Light Male Supreme Champion, GANYMEDE, so ya can't do much better than that for her future offspring! The judges have recognized the uniformity of Dark Star's fleece across the blanket and into her extremities...and the length of her fleece is another strong point. Her dam is maintaining a very nice length as a 10-year old breeding female, and it measured over 4" long at her eighth shearin...

Lilly is a beautiful Loro Piana offspring! She was specifically selected to be bred to GANYMEDE. And, WOW that was a good decision! Not only is Loro Lilly a stunning girl, but we can already tell that Celeste is going to be amazing. The pairing of Lilly with Ganymede did not disappoint... Welcome to the world Lilly's beautiful 19.4 pound female cria, born on 5/19/20! Lilly has been bred to Ganymede for a Spring 2021 cria (ultrasound positive on 10/14/20 and 3/17/21), and we hope for a repeat performance.

Bianca’s Summer 2021 cria will be a full sibling to Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede, a 4X Judges Choice AND the 2017 AOA National Supreme Color Champion (Huacaya Light Male)! For obvious reasons, Bianca will remain in our foundation herd. She's been bred to 2AF Peruvian Zeus, who is the sire of GANYMEDE, for a Summer 2021 cria (ultrasound positive on 10/14/20). We're hoping for a stud female! As always, we probably aren't willing to part with Bianca, but her cria, and unborn crias, are for sale! Bianca has great conformation, with good bone, a correct bite; and an abundant fleece with excellent density -- and she has passed on her great qualities to her offspring! Notes within Dr. No...

2AF Peruvian Zeus' first crop of offspring are here and we are delighted. He has made every color in the spectrum. Grey, Black, Brown, Fawn and White in 6 total offspring in 2015. Not to mention the first offspring to hit the show ring in his first show received 1st Place, Color Champion and went on to Judges Choice in BROWN! 2nd offspring and received 1st Place, Color Champion and went on to Judges Choice in White! We're needless to say "a little excited!" UPDATE 5/1/17: All told to date, in Zeus' 9 offspring they have racked up 27 blue ribbons, 16 color championships, 7 reserve color championships, 5 Judges Choice awards and the 2017 AOA Supreme Champion! Proudly now co-owned with NorTex Alpacas.

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 Ganymede, has produced amazing offspring. Sarafina has had textbook perfect births, and displays excellent mothering instincts. Her size and conformation is just perfect for production and she has a very ...

We purchased this gorgeous girl at the 2014 Double O Good Auction. She was a head turner then, and continues to be one of the most "showy" females in our herd. Keltie comes with her current breeding, as well as a future breeding to ANY Man in the Moon Farm herdsire — including two gorgeous multi-Champion herdsires out of Matrix Majesty lines that we think will be the perfect breeding for Keltie! For her current breeding she ultrasounded positive on March 17, 2021. Keltie has ribboned highly in some of the toughest shows in the country. She has a very pleasing body style with gorgeous conformation, excellent size, great head, and heavy bone. We've come to love her quirky and inquisitive na...

Absolutely stunning girl out of Snowmass Kahuna's Dreamer. She was specifically selected to be bred to GANYMEDE and she ultrasounded positive on March 17, 2021. Can't wait to see what they produce! "AO", as we call her, has awesome fineness and staple length. She carries that fineness in combination with an extremely good staple length. Her EPDs reflect a no-compromise combination of genetic potential for fineness, uniformity, and fleece weight. Plus, it all comes on a superior frame – and she has it! AO's service sire, GANYMEDE, is a phenomenal male. Norm Johnson had this to say about him: "This male shows extremely strong fiber traits that should be passed to his offspring...Bred t...

We always wait in great anticipation for Raina’s crias! She slipped the last pregnancy, so it’s been super long since we’ve seen one. We’re hoping for a little fawn girl this time. Her 2019 cria out of Houdini didn't want to be born on Friday the 13th, so he arrived at 6 PM on Thursday, September 12! Great looking medium fawn male -- and he's got those rolls on the back of his neck! Raina really rocks the casbah! You may or may not have heard that her 2018 male offspring garnered 3 championships in 3 shows --- and subsequently sold to Tierra Prometida & Rancho Inca! Raina is an amazing foundation female.
