Bidding Info


Mercury has had that eye catching quality from the moment he hit the ground.
CSAF .38’s Mercury Rising is an outstanding, medium silver grey male. Mercury stands upright on a strong boned, well balanced frame. His blanket is consistent in color, density, and handle showing a high amplitude crimp architecture with excellent staple length and coverage. He produces a beautiful fleece with excellent commercial value for color consistency and volume. This young male gets better and better, we are very pleased with this genetic crossing and believe his best is yet to come. He possesses all the qualities of an outstanding future herdsire, including a gentle temperament. Sired by Aussie .38 Special, he stands among a very solid and proven genetic pool. Color is deep on both sides of his pedigree making him an excellent addition to any color or grey breeding program. After Mercury's double champion winning weekend at the North American Alpaca Alpaca Show and the Northeast Alpaca Exposition, he is on to his next career as a herdsire.

Mercury's offspring have arrived and they are amazing in crimp architecture, density, conformation and uniformity of color.
