We knew this guy was special and a true blessing when he arrived. We have seen a lot born over the years and none that look like this! Flashy luster and the the unique coloring! At birth, while still wet you could notice the subtle grey hue. He appeared fawn alpaca with a shadow along his top line in photos, which was closer to the color he was at first shear - a very unique taupe/modern grey color. First shearing definitely revealed an extreme makeover.

His dam Astra, was sired by Prince Greystone a rose grey freckle-faced beauty and Astra's dam was a robust rose grey (four generations grey). His sire, Giacomo, was also a beautiful freckle-faced solid modern-grey, known to throw great luster and packed with Peruvian genetics that are less common than others.

This boy thinks he was born to breed almost from day one. We dubbed him "Mo" not only as a nickname for Giacomo, but for Mighty Mo and Machismo. As he raced around the pasture, it was nearly breathtaking to watch the breeze catch his fleece in the sunlight with the beautiful golden hue. Then what to do with that first fleece? We tried our hand at the nations largest all suri fleece show. Our first time entering a fleece show and low and behold he took a first! Scores were above average density & lock style. Judges comments were good fineness and luster in fleece that is just beginning to express it's genetic potential. Mo received a first place at California Classic with comments from the halter judge regarding his luster and fineness. We could overhear comments from the grand stands regarding how stunning he is. He also recently received a 1st place at the Gold Country Gathering 2018. His fleece is nicely re-locking after shearing

As gorgeous as he is, we can't utilize him much considering similar genetics in our herd besides his dam just gave us a girl that we plan to keep. We would possibly like to retain breedings but are open to the right buyer.
