Description

Not just because of what he is but also because of *who* he is, we have kept very close tabs on this superlative young male almost since the day he was born. There was considerable debate in-house in fact when he was only about 2 months old as to whether or not we (in this case meaning Ian, who does 90% of the naming around here) could really saddle him with a name like Centurion? He was looking spectacular already as most of the great ones do but you know…you never want to apply the jinx! Unfortunately for Centurion, he was also tasked with being the younger maternal brother of CCNF Elixir, who at the time had just finished up the spring 2012 show season by winning back-to-back Judges’ Choice honors at both the North American show as well as the Futurity. Talk about a tough act to follow...no pressure kid. As it turns out, we need not have worried. Having derived his elite fleece characteristics in equal measure from both his sire, our Futurity Herdsire of the Year, Snowmass Matrix Majesty and his world-class dam, CCNF Ascension (a daughter of CCNF Archangel), Centurion and his undeniable quality were and are here to stay.

Coming off of a spring show season that saw him win Champion White Male as well as Judges' Choice Huacaya Male at both the 2014 North American Alpaca show as well as the ever-prestigious Futurity, the prospect of him working alongside his older brother and/or covering females for Elixir when he returns to his co owner’s farm (A Paca Fun Farm in Maryland) in the fall, we feel will give our breeding program just that much more depth. We are talking about not just an alpaca who is an amazing specimen at this moment in time but one who also has the track record in his extended family of holding those incredible fleece qualities well into old age. Centurion now has several confirmed pregnancies (including some with females on our sales list) and we are proud to now offer this exceptional Champion for outside stud service on a limited basis. Please call or email with any inquiries!
