Tanzanite has maintained her fineness & staple length at 10 years old, and she's been bred to Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede -- the 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion, and 11X Champion / 4X Judges Choice recipient -- for a Spring 2020 cria (ultrasound positive on 9/9/19)! We're drooling over the prospect already!

Tanzanite's out of MFI Peruvian Jericho, a powerhouse herdsire with almost 300 offspring, and those offspring have more than 100 Championships. His 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. We're very excited about this breeding.

So, we will cross this lovely Jericho female, Brookhollow's Tanzanite, with Man in the Moon's Peruvian GANYMEDE! With Tanzie's fineness, and Ganymede's amazingly consistent and uniform fleece, matchstick bundling and long staple, we're expecting an offspring with incredible fleece as a result. We also feel certain that this offspring will have enormous presence with a very nice conformation. Tanzanite has a very pleasing personality as well.

A little about Tanzie's service sire, Ganymede -- he's a magnificent young male...You've just got to see his fleece -- it's the same ALL over! His fleece has 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.

See his web page for more info and his skin biopsy results -- a clear indication of traits he'll likely pass on to this offspring - !!! Combine this with an already amazing female, that continues to exhibit fineness and uniformity in her fleece, and we think we'll have another WINNER in this cria!

Note: MMFA has refined its focus to specializing in fawn, light and white alpacas, so now is your chance to purchase any of our quality alpacas with darker color genetics at a very reasonable price. Special pricing available for multiple alpaca purchases.
