Man in the Moon's Rigel

Huacaya Herdsire (Male) Medium Fawn

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 ...

Snowmass Bells of Piana

Huacaya Bred (Female) Beige

AOA# 35528845 DOB: 8/30/20185 yrs
Bell's latest cria, Castor, arrived on 11/4/23, and first impressions are that he is quite amazing! He arrived just a wee bit early, but he is doing quite well. We were hoping for a female, but at least we did get a dark fawn male that looks pretty darn promising! Castor continues to develop well. His fleece may be the brightest ever produced here. While we have agreed to sell him, we hope to still show him starting in the Fall of 2024, and we have also retained breeding rights. DEFINITELY going ...

Sold, but with retained breedings, and we will show him with his new owner. Congratulations to John and Susan of JLS Alpacas! I absolutely hated to sell this guy, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Castor is turning out really well, and we couldn’t be more pleased!

So, this guy came a wee bit early along with floppy ears and crooked legs. All of that has straightened out, and his fleece is just amazing! It appears that he has loads of density and crimp. Can’t wait to see him develop! He is promising indeed, but we'd expect nothing else from his dam and sire.

His dam is Snowmass Bells of Piana, a Loro Piana daughter, and her pairing with Man in the Moon's Rigel, a CCNF Leviathan son, is phenomenal! We wanted to turn around and do it again right away, but...Bell's has had two preemies in the Fall two years in a row, so we decided to wait until Spring. Even though both offspring have done very well, it's harder on the humans to tend to preemies when it's cold outside, and we must consider that the weather may have been hard on Bells, too, causing the premature births. Soooo, we wait with anticipation for her next cria to come in Spring 2025. It will be a repeat, for sure!!!
