Mira's rose gray female cria out of GANYMEDE has arrived (4/6/20) -- and, she's already sold! So, Mira has been rebred to Ganymede. Obviously, if you purchase her, she'll need to hang out here until her new cria is weaned.

Mira's Spring 2020 cria, Proxi, is a beauty with solid bone just like her dam. It's a bit early to say much about her fleece, but she's a modern rose grey, and if we had to guess, we bet it'll be quite nice with excellent fleece coverage and very good fineness. Her frame will likely be outstanding, and she is growing like a weed.

Mira has solid bone, excellent fleece coverage, brightness, great density, and a very good staple length. She's also proven to be an attentive mom, and an easy birther with plenty of milk. And she has a couple of very well known gray's in her pedigree.

Mira has an interesting and quirky personality (she's actually quite fun and inquisitive), and she gets along well with her herd, but when it comes to people, she can be a little difficult - especially if you want to touch her! Despite this, she's one of those girls that everyone who comes to the farm is taken with her big eyes and personality. She'll come right up to check you out...but, when you reciprocate by putting your hand out, she responds by saying: "Please...don't touch me!"

Mira's sire, Patagonia's Lennox, is a well known and sought after multi-Color Champion herdsire, and with 274 registered offspring to date (2/2017), he has produced more champions than any other sire at Patagonia Estates. His sire is one of the direct Chilean imports, Danko. Mira's dam brings the genetics of Snowmass Nova, 5Peruvian Chaccu, Snowmass Peruvian Casanova, Peruvian Bueno, and PPeruvian Caligula.


Note: MMFA has refined its focus to specializing in fawn, light and white alpacas, so now is your chance to purchase any of our alpacas with darker color genetics at a very reasonable price. Ask us about a package price.
