Peruvian Donovan is the official mascot of Magical Farms. He has one of the best fawn fleeces we have ever produced and his colorful offspring share the same dense, elite fleeces. At over five years of age, Donovan's fleece won First Place and Color Champion at the 2004 AOBA National Fleece Show. He has many champion offspring such as Almerea, Ramanda, Neala, and Extraordinaire to name just a few.
We bought (then) little Force very early on in our beginnings as an alpaca farm without his ARI registration. The idea was that if he grew into a herdsire-caliber male, we would go to Magical Farms to purchase his registration for $5,000. It is now 3 ½ years later, and weve literally been sitting on the fence with this boy all this time. Our quandary is that he is much, much too nice in both fleece and conformation to geld (especially with that lineage). His fleece is bright, bright, bright in addition to having great staple length, crimp, and density. In addition, he is quite the character--by far the most personality-plus animal in our barn (being practically fearless, more curious than a cat, and my personal favorite pest!). Unfortunately, we are now at a point where he is a luxury we just cant afford. If we were in a position to buy his registration, we would do so in a heartbeat. We just can't do it. He is admittedly an instigator when it comes starting trouble amongst the big boys but is no dummy for sure....when the other boys lose patience and go after him, he hides behind his pseudo-daddy, our huge gelded llama! Again, we really do not want to geld him and see him wasted as a stud. We are hoping to find someone who will give him his chance at siredom by buying his registration from Magical. He will be our hardest alpaca to part with, but he deserves better than what we can do for him at this time!
To make the point of how special we truly think he is, we are asking only for 3 breedings to Force if the right party would buy his registration from Magical Farms. This way we can create a triple win situation for buyer, seller, and alpaca!! It's very important to us that this boy go to an excellent and loving home.
