ARI# 31097352 | DOB: 5/25/2007
If you are serious about breeding alpacas to meet the demands of a large-scale American fiber industry, then you should seriously consider breeding your females to Accoyo America Tempest! At 7 years of age, his fiber was judged at the International Alpaca. Odyssey to excel with those attributes most important to the fiber industry: Retention of fineness, and uniformity of micron, length, and architecture!

Accoyo America Tempest is a male cast in his VERY famous father's image (Nautilus). T...

MRN Best Man's Ultima 

Fantastic EPDs, Outstanding Pedigree!

MRN Best Man's Ultima

Huacaya, Female, Proven, White
ARI# 32477962 | DOB: 7/4/2013
Ultima is both adorable and beautiful. Her heritage is squarely in the Snowmass lineup--her dam is a daughter of high-selling Snowmass Matrix and her sire is Snowmass Best Man, who sold to a farm in Switzerland in the 2012 Snowmass auction for a pretty penny!

Ultima carries fawn genetics: her maternal grand dam is fawn and her dam produced fawn by a fawn male. Ultima has a fawn spot on her very pretty face. She has a beautiful long staple with excellent crimp, bright fine fleece...

Mr. Snowmass Matrix, Mr.Snowmass Best Man--please meet Mr. Hemi-Accoyo Nautilus. This is a meeting that has been long in the making!!

Perfect Storm (aka "Squirt") has a fantastic pedigree and carries the positive attributes of his forebears. Fineness and uniformity of micron come from Matrix and Hemi-Accoyo Nautilus. Fantastic density and crimp are most associated with his sire and Nautilus son, Accoyo America Tempest. I think all these guys contribute to Perfect Storm's excellent substance of bone and coverage. And take a look at his EPDs---NICE!!

And the judges noticed!--He took blue ribbons in his first three competitions! And another blue ribbon as a yearling in halter at Gold Country Gathering 2018.
Perfect Storm color checked as beige, although we think he's really white. But his dam has a fawn spot and there is fawn in her background, in addition to Matrix' ability to pass any color! So who knows what colors this guy can produce? Since we own both his dam and sire, Perfect Storm is up for sale. At this low price, he is a steal--take advantage of our overpopulation!

Perfect Storm is at our North San Francisco Bay farm, Alpacas of Marin.
