AOA# 35401346 DOB: 5/8/20175 yrs
We’re so excited about this guy! We just got to see two of his first offspring at the Buckeye Fall Fest and they’re beautiful!! Prior to seeing them, we’d been planning to wait until Spring to start breeding him here at MMFA, but…after seeing him and his offspring, he’ll be getting to work this week!!! We only have 3 open females— and we already had plans for them, but those plans have changed… Rising Sun's sire, Snowmass Legend Rising, was a legend in his own right -- with 4 Judges Choice ba ...

Details
5th shearing: Grade 1 Ultra Fine Royal Baby fleece with a comfort factor close to 100%! And this beautiful female's given us five stellar offspring -- all show quality -- with a few banners in there. WP Elite Delilah will stay in our foundation herd...but there's always a price, right? She's one of the best out there, and she's maintaining incredible fleece stats with a Spin Fineness of 17.7 microns at 5 years old as a breeding female! As an 8-year old, I doubt it's changed much -- she still has a beautiful crimp, fineness, and a wonderful handle to her fleece.

If you are looking for the very best, Delilah's offspring are absolutely what you should consider...at least one of them, anyway! Delilah’s been bred to Legend’s Rising Sun for her 2023 cria. We bred Delilah to his sire, Legend Rising, a few years ago and they produced our Venus, who is a stellar female which we retained in our foundation herd. This was the entire reason we inquired about Rising Sun in the first place. We can’t wait to see this offspring's fleece!!

Rising Sun has incredible matchstick bundles full of a well-defined crimp and brightness, and he's maintaining uniformity and fineness across his blanket. We had the opportunity to see 2 of his first offspring at the 2022 Buckeye Fall Fest and they were stunning! He's passing his outstanding fleece characteristics along -- if there had been a third offspring there, he probably would have had a good shot at winning Get of Sire.

Delilah's 2020 female cria, Arielle (SOLD), may follow in the footsteps of her half sister, Venus. Her 2019 cria, Orion (SOLD), was awarded 1st place at the AOA National Show and has so far accumulated 4 Blue Ribbons. Too bad the Spring 2020 show season was cut short by COVID. Her Fall 2017 cria, Venus, is a real showstopper that took two Reserve Championships at her first show (with both CCNF and Snowmass represented in her class). Her 2016 male cria, Prometheus, also won a Color Championship, and has just started breeding as a herdsire on MMFA's stud row. We have no doubt Delilah can produce the best of the best of the best based on her five crias to date.

Delilah is out of the renowned stud, The Elite Maximus. At 13 years old his 2014 histogram was less than 19 microns! And that fineness was incredibly uniform, with a comfort factor of close to 100%. Wow!! The Elite Maximus was one of those few animals to possess instant name recognition in the alpaca world. His reputation as a herdsire, and before that, in the show ring, was second to none. Sadly, The Elite Maximus suddenly passed away in the Fall of 2016. Delilah is one of his elite progeny.
