We knew it! The 1st daughter sired by Aussie Maku received JUDGES CHOICE at the 2014 Empire as well as the fawn fleece color championship. She also was awarded Fawn Reserve Color Champion at 7 months of age at the 2014 GWAS where over 800 alpacas were shown in extremely tough classes. (Shantilly is now owned by Christine and David Houseworth of Cabin View Alpacas.) Maku is one of a kind and we knew that his offspring would be the same. Flawless conformation and dense, dense fleece that is very uniform. We have bred him to females of color. Aussie Acres got a grey female out of a grey female so the color is there. His later offspring have shown well and we have continued very high hopes for 2017-2018 show crias.
Maku is not a common household name but his family tree is spectacular from the back to the front. We’re thrilled to have this male on our stud row! Co-owned with Aussie Acres Alpacas.
As Maku was solely owned by a busy judge during the time he could have been campaigned, his show record is sparse. His offspring and their class placings speak volumes for the quality of this male.
