Just because an alpaca is gelded doesn't automatically make him a "fiber male". Donovan has the fleece ribbons to prove that he's got the fiber! He inherited his sire's rare and magnificent maroon coloring, with black points on his nose and ears. Donovan's fiber is crimpy and unbelievably soft; it's hard to keep your hands off him. His dam is a brown and white pinto who reliably produces top quality offspring, including a third place winner in the white class of the 2000 National Handcrafters' SpinOff and a blue ribbon winner in the multicolor composite class at MaPaca 2003. Donovan is consistently in the ribbons in spin-offs and fleece shows. He likes attention although not contact. He always comes over to see what you're doing, follows you around as you do chores and he amuses himself by chasing the chickens. A former breeder, he can be used for spit testing and be pastured with herdsires.
