Right out of our foundation, we offer this stellar producer along with her fawn female cria, Talitha, who at 20.1 pounds arrived on 10/2/21. Not only does she come with her cria, but she's been rebred to Ganymede for her 2022 cria! That pairing has always done well.

About Talitha's sire: After much wringing of the hands, we decided to share Sarafina's excellence with another stud -- as to possibly have another of her excellent progeny to breed to Ganymede. We chose Mary's Prince Waldemar for Sarafina's 5th offspring. Prince Waldemar won the Highest Scoring Fawn Fleece and the Spin Off at the AOA National Show in 2018. In 2016 Mary's Prince Waldemar won Champion, Judge's Choice & Spin Off at the AOA National Show. He's an extremely nice male that's holding very good crimp and fineness as a mature breeding male.

Now that we have our female cria, we have bred Sarafina back to Ganymede again. The offspring Sarafina and Ganymede have created together are perfect IMHO! But, you don't have to take my word for it...Her 2019 cria, Ayla, was such a nice girl that we had consigned her to the Parade of Champions auction that was supposed to take place in May 2020, but due to COVID it was canceled. Ayla was sold to Meadowgate Alpacas and immediately won the fawn female Color Championship at the November 2020 VAOBA Derby under Judge Amanda Vandenbosh!

We purchased Sarafina at The Futurity Show & Sale in 2015 as seed stock for our breeding program. Sarafina has had textbook perfect births and she displays excellent mothering instincts. Her size and conformation are just perfect for production. Also, 4 of her 5 crias have been fawn females! She's been a very healthy girl and she's easy to handle...a perfect foundation female. Her genetics are also impressive. Sarafina's sire, TWF Peruvian Embosser (Odyssey, Godfather, Vengador, Royal Fawn) passed on his elite fleece, handle, staple and coverage. Her dam, TWF Peruvian Saffron (Felix, Accoyo Express) also passed on her dense, bright fleece.


Note: MMFA offers its best pricing on packages of three or more alpacas. If you're interested in this 3-in-1, you should definitely take a look at our Foundation/ Show Quality Female Package. Let us know what you're looking for and we can help you find the right package within your budget.
