We knew this guy was special before he was born and a true blessing when he arrived. We feel we have seen a lot of cria 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.

We were told his mom was the PR alpaca and I think that he actually may volunteer as our official ranch greeter. Then again, 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.

Oh, what to do with that first fleece? How about trying your 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. Now what to do with that unique fleece from a processing standpoint.

Mo had also 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. Really one to get your eyes and hands on. Nearly everyone comments on him as a herd standout and on a ranch with over 200 alpacas that says something.

As gorgeous as he is, we just can't keep and utilize them all considering similar genetics in our herd. Let us know if you are interested in partial ownership or if we could retain breedings.
