We are literally bursting at the seams here on the farm. For a year we have been looking for more acreage to build on within our community, without success. With 13 cria coming this year we have been forced to reduce our numbers to make room. Offering Liberation for sale was a difficult decision. If it weren't for the fact that we have his full brother he would never be listed. He is a genetic boiler pot with proven results and we are confident he will bring genetic gain to your herd.
Snowmass Matrix Liberation represents the elite qualities found within his pedigree. His sire is Snowmass Matrix, one of the best Snowmass Quechua sons ever produced. Matrix has consistently passed on the select qualities breeders are looking for: lingering fineness, density, bright well organized fleece on a pleasing frame. Liberation's dam, Snowmass Lady Liberty, is a beige Royal Reserve daughter adding the lines of Hemingway, Bueno, and Snowmaster. Her offspring have all placed high in the showring, demonstrating her ability to pass on her select traits and that of the stud. Combine all of this and you have a herdsire in Snowmass Matrix Liberation that carries the most desirable genetics in the industry.
When we took possession of Liberation as a juvenile, he had a 6 inch staple with incredible consistency across the entire fleece. In the word's of Wade Gease at AWE 2010 "WOW, I was not expecting to see that when I opened up this fleece!". Liberation's second fleece has maintained that beautiful character and consistency across the body. Judge Mike Safley agreed with his comments at the 2011 AOBA National Show "This alpaca demonstrates great character throughout the fleece, a very long staple, and lingering fineness. The coverage on this alpaca is also very impressive".
Liberation's strengths are found within his fleece- incredible shine, character, and long staple length. Add in a solid frame as well as his prepotent genetics and you have a herdsire that adds tremendous value to a breeding program.
His show career was very consistent, much like his fleece. He was entered in 5 shows through 2010-2011, and placed 3rd in every show. He definitely held his own against some of the top farms in our industry!
Liberation sired 5 cria in 2012; 4 female and 1 male ranging in color from bay black to white. He is consistently adding beautiful fleece character, superior staple length, consistency across the fleece and a brightness that literally makes the fleece shine. A beige daughter here on the farm may be the densest cria we have produced over the last 6 years.
