Mister Maverick DOB 8/15/1995 (Peruvian Don Julio G159 X PPeruvian Dionisia B4231)
Mister Maverick passed away in August, 2009. We will leave his page here in his memory - and for your reference.
The image of his legenday Alianza sire, PERUVIAN DON JULIO, MISTER MAVERICK ("M&M" to his friends) is eye-catching with flawless conformation and a perfect bite. From outstanding lineage, he has the traits you expect: dense fine fleece, extavagant coverage, heavy bone, and no coarse guard hair. For fine fleeces - that stay fine as the years go by - breed your females to Mister Maverick.
In the '06 Making of Champions sale catalog, Julie Skinner of Snowmass Alpacas states that she traded two imported full Accoyo studs to obtain PERUVIAN DON JULIO, "...he was that good!". Listed as 'Cantexto' in import records, he recieved a 'superior' rating. Exported to Australia in 1997, there are a limited number of DON JULIO progeny in the US. Now deceased, DON JULIO'S impact will be felt for generations to come.
According to his current owners, Jude Anderson & Alan Cousill of Pucara Alpaca Stud in Australia, "Rodger and Clyde Haldane chose DON JULIO in Peru along with the famous US stud male PERUVIAN HEMINGWAY. DON JULIO was ear-marked by the Rural Allianza for the National show team. In fact, his sire was the 1993 National Supreme Champion of Peru."

Top studs always come from outstanding dams. PPERUVIAN DIONISIA B4231 is exceptional. According to Susan & Chris Lehner of Champion Alpacas and Jerilynn Booher DVM, "She was part of the 'Superior Group' from the Huaripina (an Alianza herd) import. She is dense and has excellent coverage. She looks like a younger female and has maintained an amazingly fine fleece!"
