It is no secret that we are devoted fans of the Snowmass breeding program. It was Don and Julie who we clicked with when we first ventured to the US to take alpacas to Australia way back in 1994. We thought the same way about breeding and fiber. Jude and I helped with their selections in Peru and co-owned herdsires like Hemingway, Drambuie, Peruvian Don Julio etc. So its no wonder our huacaya stud male stable is entirely based on Snowmass genetics.
So here with Lucy's Promise we have an example of layer upon layer of Snowmass genetics and its expression as beautiful phenotype. Just look at the lineage in this girl of famous herdsires:
4Peruvian Andean Gold
Snowmass Andean Bronze
Snowmass Royal Bronze
Snowmass Peruvian Casanova
Snowmass Snow King
This is a veritable smorgasbord of proven color and elite white fiber genetics. You can breed this girl to any color and chances are she'll breed to the sire's color. But really who cares? When the fiber is as good as hers perhaps you'd just be happy with breeding for the fiber of the future.
She has got a fine fleece as well with a 19.1micron and a cv of 22.1...thats pretty handy considering our herd is on cow pasture all year long. No feed lot fineness here!
Besides her great looks, her head turning appeal, Lucy's Promise boasts a fine micron fleece with good organiztion across the blanket and the makings of tiny staple formation relating her to density. It is a bold, bright and well nourished fleece which proudly announces her superior genetics.
Her free breeding is your choice from any of our select huacaya stud males
