Crescent Moon’s Emmaus
We were pretty excited in early 2017 when Emmaus’ shorn juvenile fleece had finally grown back and a true assessment could be made. We could see that his type was special so if the fleece measured up? Well if you are familiar with the gray male show ring in 2017, 18 and 2019 then you know the answer to the question. Emmaus has found his way to the top of our herdsire stable. His beauty and his fleece are equal to his disposition and we could not be happier with his production record even though it’s early in his career.

Snowman Matrix Belvedere
We looked at Belvedere on and off for a couple of years never making the jump because of all the expenditures that we were making on the ranch property. When we finally had some breathing room and Belvedere was still available we had to make the leap. His lasting fineness and his impeccable conformation not to mention EPDs that are superb made the purchase easy. We are proud to co-own him with Sopris Alpacas in western Colorado, and we both expect great things from him. His first cria have arrived to us this year and we are not disappointed in the least.

Liberty’s Manifest Destiny (“Max”)
We saw Max for the first time in Denver at the National Show when he was a juvenile. He took the reserve brown male championship to another juvenile who then went on to win the Supreme Dark Male title. It was Max’s dam that originally made us go take a look at him. She had done extremely well in the show ring herself winning among other things the 2016 Supreme Dark Female Championship at the National Show. A title her son Max, would also achieve. Max’s name (Manifest-Destiny) is prophetic. The only thing left to see after his incredible show record is whether his production record will be as good as his mom’s. We’re confident it will be!
