We have always been drawn to the gray alpacas.We have several gray females in our herd. Having always wanted to have a top gray herdsire, when given the chance to partner on Greymatter we were thrilled.

Mattie has it all, his fleece is simply spectacular. It has a a great low micron and a low CV, wonderful buttery supple feel with a soft handle. These fleece qualities are quite rare in greys.
His staple length is very impressive, with consistent tight crimp from skin to tip. Mattie also has very few spots on his blanket.

Mattie's genetics are among the best in the business. His sire is Lancaster, owned by Flying Pony, whose genetics are so sought after, he has over 300 cria. Mattie is among only 6 grey males that Lancaster has ever produced. Lancaster's sire is Conan whom we've admired for years. Mattie's dam is a ribbon winner herself who has produced gorgeous cria including a Judge's Choice winner.

Matties temperament is so mellow. You would never think that a breeding male would be so calm and relaxed on a lead. He is just a pleasure to work with. We love having him here on our farm and truly miss him when he is at one of our partners farms.

**Mattie will have his first cria crop arriving this summer. He has 10 confirmed pregnancies.

We are proud to co-own Mattie with Ideuma Creek Alpacas & Out of Sight Alpacas.
