Ask a question
Phenomenal girl...All we can say is Wow! She is better than we could have dreamed! Her Spring 2023 cria arrived on 5/22/23 and he is a light fawn stunner! We have named him Centaurus. Venus 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, Carina, on 10/25/21! This is a winning combination! Ultrasound reconfirmed 2/1/24.

Now that we have two females and a gorgeous male out of Venus and Ganymede, we need to make the tough decision on whether we breed her back to Ganymede again, or try her with one of our other spectacular studs. Part of me says not to change something that is working so well, but another part of me says we could end up with another female that could be bred back to Ganymede if we breed her to an unrelated male. Decisions, decisions…Forget that thought—her 2023 cria looks too good not to repeat! Venus will be bred back to Ganymede. It’s a “no brainer.”

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.
