Mr. Big-- Producer of Champions AND GLAMOR MODELS!! His son, Charming, has "hit the runway"!

Mr. Big is sired by MFI Peruvian Black Mesquite. Black Mesquite is thought to be the most successful black herdsire in the industry today. His breeding sells for $7500. His offspring have dominated at the shows across the country for years.

Mr. Big's dam 'Maia' is a two time 'Produce of Dam' blue ribbon winner and is a daughter of MFI Peruvian Jericho, who has produced offspring that have won over 130 championships. He is also the sire of Majestic Peruvian Jeremiah.

With these championship bloodlines we have great confidence in Mr. Big's presence in the show ring, as well as his herdsire potential.

His fleece is very, very dense with zipper crimp, full of character and beautiful brightness. Wade Gease described it as being very velvety. He is a solidly built boy with big bone, straight legs. Mr. Big is a real 'eat pellets out of your hand' kinda guy. He has a confident, calm, very relaxed disposition which makes him very nice to handle and show. He seems to like showing, stands up so proud and square.

Mr. Big's first show and it's a first place! At The Best Of the US Show in Columbus Oh. March 10, 2012.
Mr. Big placed second at the 2012 AOBA Nationals in Louisville, KY.

First show of 2013 for Mr. Big and he placed 3rd in a very large competitive class at the Best of the US Show in the dark brown yearling male class (this is the only show that they did not put him the multi class). Amanda Vandenbosch appreciated his denseness with it's lovely character, along with his substantial frame and big bone.

Finally they offered a championship for multis, at the 2013 MAPACA Show, a level 5 show and Mr. Big won the Reserve Championship. Still going strong in 2014 with a first at the Best of the US Show in Columbus, Ohio, and then followed that up with another blue at the 2014 Kentucky Classic in Lexington, Ky. and another blue at the 2014 MAPACA Jubilee! 2014 OABA AlpacaFest and another blue.

Mr. Big now has three offspring on the ground. All three are stunning True Blacks out of Blacks. Two of the three have hit the show ring resulting in very respectable finishes.

Update: Daughter, Rare Gem Grace O'Malley, is now a 3X banner winner!!
