TWF Peruvian Sarafina

Huacaya Bred (Female) Medium Fawn

Thank you, Fred & Jane! Can't believe we let this one go, especially with that breeding. Best of luck -- we hope it's another knockout fawn female. Ultrasound positive 1/28/2022 and due Sept 2022. Right out of our foundation, we offer this stellar producer bred to Ganymede for her 2022 cria! The pairing of Sarafina with Ganymede has always done well. The offspring they have created together are perfect IMHO! But, you don't have to take my word for it...Her 2019 cria, Ayla, was such a nice gi ...

Ask a question
From day 1; we called Elara a "keeper!" We thought long and hard about listing her for sale. Elara's full sister, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ayla (SOLD), championed as a yearling at her first show, the 2020 VAOBA Derby Fawn Female Color Champion! Elara’s fleece character is shining through with uniformity and fineness that carries across her blanket, down into the belly and legs! Elara's conformation is spot on, with a well-balanced frame made for production. With her dark toenails, eyelashes, and nose, she'll fit into a light or color breeding program. Elara participated in her first shows, and we were very pleased with the judges comments, recognizing the consistency and uniformity of her fleece across the blanket, and from skin to tip. These genetics are powerful!

Elara's sire is the 2017 AOA National Supreme Champion, Man in the Moon's Peruvian Ganymede, carries some important genetics, including the likes of 382 Peruvian Zephyrus, who was the 2005 Futurity Reserve Herdsire of the Year. Ganymede garnered 4 Judges Choice banners and Championed in every show he attended from 10 months old on (for a total of 11). The Judges repeatedly said: "He's the clear winner!" and "He's the SAME All Over!...from skin to tip, from front to back!" He is SPECTACULAR and we're pretty sure he's passed all of his outstanding qualities to Elara! We expect great things from this remarkable girl!

Elara's dam, TWF Peruvian Sarafina, has a consistent uniform crimp and fineness across her blanket. She has a soft handle, great density, and a very good staple length. She's just a beautiful girl...Her genetics are also impressive. Sarafina's sire, TWF Peruvian Embosser (Odyssey, Godfather, Vengador, Royal Fawn) passed on his elite fleece, handle, staple and coverage. Her dam, TWF Peruvian Saffron (Felix, Accoyo Express) also passed on her dense, bright fleece.

Elara had been bred to WP Elite Maximillion. You learn some things the hard way -- she began acting quite uncomfortable the day we gave her a Vit AD injection, and she aborted at 5 months the next morning. Unfortunately, Maximillion passed unexpectedly and we missed our window for a Fall 2020 breeding. So Elara will be bred in Spring 2021 for her first cria. Purchase her now and choose the herdsire. Our recommendation would be either QR Ice Man or Man in the Moon's Rigel (if he's ready), who just won his first Championship in November 2020 at the VAOBA Expo under Judge Wade Gease.
