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. 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 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.

We've decided to breed Delilah to our newest herdsire, Man in the Moon's Rigel. He's a beautiful 5X Champion male out of the Matrix Majesty line. His sire, CCNF Leviathan, is a 9X Champion and Judges Choice male that has produced extraordinary offspring, as has his dam, Bella's Dream (all offspring have championed so far). We believe this pairing will bring the best of everything together and we can't wait for this offspring!

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.

Awards
DELILAH'S SHOW RECORD:
THIRD PLACE MABA CELEBRATION 2014, MD (BEHIND CHAMPION & RESERVE CHAMPION!)
VAOBA EXPO 2014, VA (LEVEL IV, EXTREMELY COMPETITIVE CLASS OF 12)
AOA NATIONALS 2015, NE
MAPACA JUBILEE 2015, PA (LEVEL V, CLASS OF 9)
DELILAH HAS SPECTACULAR FLEECE. JUDGE'S COMMENTS INDICATED THAT HER PLACEMENT BELOW OTHERS IN HER CLASS WAS DUE TO LESS DENSITY THAN THOSE ABOVE HER. WE CAN ATTEST THAT SHE CURRENTLY HAS AMAZING DENSITY AND IS MAINTAINING HER FINENESS, AS A BREEDING FEMALE. FAWN CLASSES ARE SOME OF THE TOUGHEST COMPETITION IN THE ALPACA INDUSTRY.
