R.I.P. Losing Megabuck was like losing a best friend. He had the energy and spirit of 10 alpacas yet always behaved like a gentleman for me. His lines will continue on our farm through his descendants.
When Megabuck was used for breeding or behavior checks, his orgling would cause ALL the females in the pasture, irregardless of pregnancy status, to run up and gather around. They knew he was special too! As the oldest male he was alpha, but 95% of his life he was kept in the male herd.

Sire of Dixie, Starry, Betsy Ross and Mateo.
Very sadly, a couple years ago Dusty got overheated (only 70 with
strong sunshine and plenty of shade) the day before shearing. He sired one cria shortly thereafter and none since, so he's now for sale as a pet. We really need to think about breeding alpacas with too much density.
Like his TB sire, Megabuck Mink in his first 4 years, Dusty's entire fleece shows no visible strong guard hairs, is silky-soft and fine, very long stapled and very bright with very good density; medium amplitude and frequency crimp; very abundant fiber coverage all the way around and down his perfect legs! We sheared Dusty's black cria tips at one month of age to reveal his silver dust...no spots! His fleece is becoming more dusted with silver as he matures. Dusty's parents have produced 4 lb. annual blankets (1sts only) and Dusty's 08 fleece is going to be huge!
We still can't find a conformational fault on this male, teeth to toenails as the judge confirmed! Following in his parents footsteps, Dusty is robust and very healthy with large testicles, heavy bone and musculature, proportions and bite.
Dusty is one of the smartest and easiest alpacas I know with a wonderfully calm and trusting dispostion. As a young cria, he let me run my hand down his leg without even a flinch.His solid pedigree is full of successful bloodlines in the showrings and the breeding pastures: Patagonia's Compadre/Caballero Adante, Michelangelo/P. Guellermo, 4Peruvian Lanark's Locota (see sold listings)/Megabuck Mink; champion uncle Constantino; and three gorgeous, successful and silver granddams: C&S Cookee, Silver Empress and 6Peruvian Dona Jacira (see sold listing).
