Huacaya, Female, Proven | Medium Fawn

We love to cross Peruvian/Accoyo bloodlines with Bolivians, the results are consistently amazing! MaRS Lemuria is the result of one such breeding and it shows. The first thing you notice about Lemuria is her presence, she certainly has that "look at me" quality about her.

Lemuria has a solid build and could most certainly be categorized as an easy keeper. Her fleece production is impressive, one of the densest on the farm. The character of her fleece holds it's consistency across the blanket area, 5 to 6 crimps per inch. She seems to have settled in the 24 to 25 AFD range in adulthood, I would bet that if she wasn't such an "easy keeper" it may be a few points lower.


Her first cria was a beige male in July 2012 during a thunderstorm. The birth was extremely fast with no complications. Lemuria has proven herself to be a great mother and will be a terrific production female for years to come. Here's a video of the 2012 cria at 3 hours old.

Lemuria did it again in January 2014 when she delivered another strong, healthy cria delivered in ease! This time it's a bright white female with solid structure and substantial density and character to her fleece. We had hoped to see some spots given the fact that her sire is an appy, but we'll take her! This year's shearer commented that her cria, Claritas, has the brightest, whitest fleece he has seen while shearing, quite the compliment coming from someone who's seen many! We plan to retain Claritas for our foundation herd.

Lemuria's dam, Mars Cassini, is one of our best production females. Cassini has thrown award winning cria year after year. Cassini brings the well known Bolivian line of Black Thunder to Lemuria. Her sire, Bold Ruler, was a son of Accoyo Plantel and an Alianza dam. Plantel had been standing stud at Magical Farms for years and I had always dreamed of having a piece of his genetics. Bold Ruler was a, dare I say it, Bold male, with significant size and commanding presence. His yearly fleece weight is impressive at 12 to 13 pounds.

Lemuria is sold with all standard reproductive guarantees and a breeding to any of the Alpacas from MaRS herdsires.
