Success at the RAC and SEA Shows!

We are very proud of Snowmass Lyrica's Chakra and Snowmass Blue Velvet XX as they both took Reserve Champion at the Double Show Weekend. Chakra, Reserve Champion on Friday and Blue Velvet XX Reserve Champion on Saturday. Blue Diamond XX was then sold to John and Janis Conlon with Ridge Valley Alpacas, who I am sure will be very pleased with their purchase.

Off to The Heart of Virginia Show on April 1st and then to MAPACA which will end the spring show season as shearing is the following weekend.

We hope to see you at the shows.

Snowmass Blacks Arrive on Friday, December 9th, 2016

Time to get off that trailer!

Time to get off that trailer!

Well it was exciting to say the least on Friday morning when an over 80 foot total tractor and trailer full of alpacas arrives on our small sand driveway to the farm. Wade Brooks delivered from Snowmass Alpacas a truck load of the most amazing black alpacas. There are a few white, browns and greys in that package as well. This delivery was Dams and Cria only with the remaining Dams and the Herdsires and Junior Herdsires to leave out of Snowmass Alpacas at the end of the month.

We are so proud to be the owners of 30+ years of the Snowmass Black Alpaca Breeding of Excellence program. Along with the Snowmass Champion Black Herdsires we have a stunning group of upcoming young Black Males and Females, as well as some pretty awesome proven females with Genetic lines that can not be beat. Snowmass Royal Malaika, a Royal Bronze daughter and one of the backbones of this program as well as Snowmass Amazing Grace, Snowmass Black Pearl XXX, Snowmass Incan Elegance, Snowmass Incan Shadow, Snowmass XXXtremely Royal, Snowmass Midnight Star XX, Snowmass Silky Fox, just to mention a few.

Our sincerest thanks to Don and Julie Skinner for all of the kindness shown, mentoring, day and night emails and long farm visit of endless questions and viewing fleeces. It was a time to remember, because as for me, looking at fleeces is like opening a Christmas present every single time.

Glad to be off that darn trailer!
