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 ...

Phenomenal girl...All we can say is Wow! She is better than we could have dreamed! She produced her first cria on 10/16/20 from a breeding with Ganymede, the 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion, and 4X Judges Choice male...and we absolutely love what we got! It’s a white female that we named Adhara. We bred Venus back to Ganymede for an encore performance and she produced Adhara’s full sister on 10/25/21! We’ve named her Carina. She'll be bred right back to Ganymede in 2022 for her Spring 2023 cria! This is a winning combination!

MMFA Venus Rising started her show career at the 2018 Showtacular/ NEAOBA/ Empire, and she walked away with two Reserve Color Championships--one of them in front of a Snowmass female and the other right behind CCNF! At the 2019 Heart of Virginia, she walked away with a full Color Championship in front of a beautiful Stillmeadow female. Kevin O'Leary said she is the "total package." She has absolutely stunning fleece. It has staple length, true matchstick bundling, incredible character, fineness, uniformity, and absolutely wonderful handle -- and, there's a lot of it!

Venus is out of one of our top stud females, WP Elite Delilah, who is out of The Elite Maximus. Delilah is maintaining an 18 micron AFD at 5 years old! and while we haven't gotten a recent histogram, her fleece is amazing for her age and the number of crias she's had -- definitely one of the best fleeces on the farm. I feel sure her fleece is still less than 20 microns and it still has crimp and a wonderful handle. Venus' sire is none other than Snowmass Legend Rising, a multi-champion white male who garnered 4X Judges Choice awards. The sad news is that he unexpectedly passed in the Fall of 2018--much, much too soon. We had hoped to repeat this breeding.


Note: MMFA offers its best pricing on packages of three or more alpacas. Let us know what you're looking for and we can help you find the right package within your budget.
