This fabulous gal has the color genetics we're all looking for! Mo has just delivered her 2009 cria by our 2-time champion, Glenbar's Pale Rider. Mo is an experienced and protective dam, whose 2009 cria is a beautiful 23-pound MF/W/LSG male! We knew she could throw gray, and Mozart proves it. Maureen is being taken off our sales list so we can benefit from the genetics that her breeding to Kobuk will give us in 2010.
Glenbar's Pale Rider
White, 1436151, Full Peruvian
Pale Rider is an exquisite son of Zeus Rose and grandson of the famous Inca. With his blazingly lustrous white locks, density, and uniformity, it isn't surprising that PR won championships as a juvenile and a yearling, as well as first place at AOBA's 2006 national show in a composite class -- the best type of class to gauge the overall quality of an alpaca. PR has the conformation I look for in a breeding male, with proper proportion, a sturdy build, excellent bone and a macho presence. Furthermore, PR shears nearly 10# of exceptional fleece each year! We are offering limited outside breedings to Pale Rider, and invite you to bring his excellent Accoyo genetics, his fantastic fiber qualities and his perfect conformation into your breeding program. Judges Charlene Freidman, Shannon McConnell and Amanda Vandenbosch all loved him. So will you!
We are so pleased with Rider's first cria -- see LSF Cantata out of LSF Sonata -- that in 2008 we bred Rider across much of our
Shearing Weight 2012: 5 pounds blanket only (~2 years' growth)
Mo is an excellent breeding male, whose first cria was reportedly stunning.
We had originally thought Mo was MF, but on closer exam in good light recently, we realized that his fiber is actually MRG, with a large light rose gray patch on the back of his neck. If you love color, lock style, luster and are looking for silver or rose gray, Mo should be on your shopping list. If you enjoy the spotlight and blue ribbons, Mo should DEFINITELY be on your shopping list! He has all the qualities you want in a show macho: fiber, conformation, stature and presence. He walks as though he owns the farm, with command and style, and his statuesque build puts him literally head and shoulders above his peers.
With his 2-time champion sire, Pale Rider, we have no doubts that Mo would be at the top of his class were he shown, although our own time for showing is extremely limited. Mo has produced an excellent blanket with exceptional luster and staple length for 3 shearings. We look forward to having his fiber tested for uniformity, since his handle is exquisite.
