We've been letting Aries remain part of the foundation fiber growing herd here as he has the amazing Hummingherd genetics that include superior density and a uniform soft white fleece packed on his tall frame. He simply hasn't made the cut to get into the breeding program as he doesn't sport a typey 'head'... however as we grow into the fleece producing industry that demands his kind of fleece, we decided to list Aries as he would certainly bring advanced genetics and superior to fleece to many owners that just don't have these traits in their herdsires. Hey... we don't shear their nose for fleece anyways, so he really is a catch if you aren't driven by the show ring.

Conformation otherwise is absolutely spot-on! Health is excellent, he has never given us any worries or required any special care etc. Aries is a 7 year old male that has fleece still at a 21 micron! We JUST entered him in the ABR Fall Fleece show (11/2017) and he took a second place.

in 2017, as a seven year old feisty male, Aries shows EPDs in the TOP of the industry! Literally he has a 'TOP %' banner on every single fleece trait! His fiber is exceptional and we are just already over 'peak' capacity with males here - so we will offer him at a reduced price in hopes that he can be beneficial to another herd. He has become a little more feisty as an adult and would be an excellent breeder as he is more 'macho' now than ever. Due to the low sales price, we don't feel we need to offer reproductive warranty - he comes from very prolific breeding lines and we have no worries that he could produce.

Aries mom was purchased and now resides at LCF/Accoyo America in NY - and his herdsire was the foundation of the incredibly successful Hummingherd Alpacas program. His sire, Hummingherd's Leviathan was a multi-champion herdsire with championship bannered offspring in white and fawns. The line carries color and allows color when bred to colored dams. Aries parents were both exceptionally dense, and carried lasting fineness as they age. Leviathan is now deceased, and we think these males should be considered for passing the elite fiber traits that they carry.
