Bidding Info

Description

Sarafina welcomed her 4th cria & 1st male cria on 10/3! We have named him Aries. More info soon...The combination of GANYMEDE and TWF Sarafina definitely works! So...we exposed Sarafina to Ganymede for a 3rd time and Aries didn't dissappoint (other than we were expecting another fawn girl)! If you are breeding for fiber that has amazing uniformity, consistency, lasting fineness, and is "the SAME all over!", this is the place to start. Sarafina's fleece, and the unmatched consistency of Ganymede, has produced amazing offspring.

Sarafina has had textbook perfect births, and displays excellent mothering instincts. Her size and conformation is just perfect for production and she has a very pleasing disposition. She's a beautiful girl and she's easy to handle...a perfect foundation female. 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.

The offspring Sarafina and Ganymede have created together are perfect IMHO! But, you don't have to take my word for it, you can come to the farm and see for yourself...Her 2019 cria, Ayla, was such a nice girl that we had consigned her to the Parade of Champions auction that was supposed to take place in May 2020, but due to COVID it was canceled. Ayla subsequently won the fawn female Color Championship at the November 2020 VAOBA Derby under Judge Amanda Vandenbosh! We almost regret not rebreeding Sarafina again to Ganymede -- especially since Ayla has now been sold; however, we wanted to bring more diversity to our genetics and we're crossing our fingers for a female offspring that can also be bred to Ganymede!

After much wringing of the hands, we decided to share Sarafina's excellence with another stud -- so that we can possibly have another of her excellent progeny to breed to Ganymede. We chose Mary's Prince Waldemar. In 2018 Prince Waldemar won the Highest Scoring Fawn Fleece and the Spin Off at the AOA National Show. In 2016 Mary's Prince Waldemar won Champion, Judge's Choice & Spin Off at the AOA National Fleece Show. He's an extremely nice male that we think will complement Sarafina quite well.


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.
