AOA# 35379188 DOB: 4/23/20195 yrs
This guy is programmed for pre-potency! Color coat testing = Ee AA, and…of the few progeny on the ground, he is fulfilling exactly what we thought he would and we can’t wait to get more of his progeny on the ground! Rigel won his 6th Championship at the 2023 AOA National IFA Fleece Show (measured AFD 20.1 micron) as Dark Color Champion at 4-years old! We know that his sire, CCNF Leviathan, has stamped out tons of champions. His dam, Stillmeadow Farm Bella’s Dream, has produced 4 champions thus f ...

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 least one of them, anyway! Delilah’s been bred to Legend’s Rising Sun for her 2023 cria, and she delivered a light fawn female, Electra. Electra is so lovely that I wish we had repeated the breeding! But, we think she will do very well with Rigel, too! Ultrasound confirmed positive 1/3/24.

We bred Delilah to Rising Sun’s sire, Snowmass 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.

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! UPDATE: Sunny & Delilah produced a strong and healthy light fawn female on 10/14/23! More info to come…

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), and we have retained her in our foundation herd. 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.
