Snowmass Velvet Legend

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Dark Fawn, Full Peruvian
ARI# 32125313 | DOB: 10/15/2010
Our breeding goals have changed since we bought this boy and we aren't using him like we expected. We hate to see him languish in our herd when someone else could put him to good use. He produces nice cria, with lots of density and nice crimp... and to date most have been girls! This is your chance to take advantage of a great New Years special!

Legend comes out of the amazing Snowmass breeding program. His sire is the AOBA World Black Fleece Champion, Snowmass Sterling Legend. Sterling Leg...

San Antonio Gal's Solana  

Bred to Sentinels Denali!

San Antonio Gal's Solana

Huacaya, Female, Proven, Dark Fawn, 1/2 Peruvian
ARI# 835841 | DOB: 5/1/2001
Solana is bred (pregnancy confirmed) to 17 X Champion RR Guns' Kit Carson for her 2018 cria. Based on her previous cria, we expect that this cria will carry the sire's density and likely be grey or black. Given her retained fineness and epds, we think this will be a stellar cria!

Solana was part of our original herd purchase. She came to us with Reveille at her side. While he was an accidental breeding (to a suri), he shows that, bred to light color, she will produce a dark cria. So far all ...

Judges Choice - Exquisite Handle!

MHAR Blizzard by Justice

Huacaya, Male, Proven, White, 3/4 Peruvian, 1/4 Bolivian
ARI# 32742312 | DOB: 6/2/2013
At birth, we knew he was something special. It was birthing season and there were a lot of cria on the ground...
When we saw him our first reaction was ... oh no... because we were breeding for dark colors and Blizzard is obviously white as in WHITE not off white or cream (much less beige) but amazing bright WHITE!
None of our whites have ever been this brite WHITE! Even our white herdsire (Ike) or irridescent boy (Persey is more creamy) haven't been this White!

Our 4-H kids named him Bli...

Bidding Info


Calypso's fleece is a bright peachy color with nice crimp and handle! Unfortunately, she was sold (as a cria) as part of a purchase package that defaulted (and eventually came back to us) and so wasn't shown. But she has a nice square frame with excellent bite and conformation!

Her parents have nice fleece stats... Dad is out of the Snowmass gray/black line and has shown retained fineness with nice uniformity. Mom also has shown nice retained fineness. So we think her fleece will follow suit as she ages.

We bred her to 17 X Campion RR Guns' Kit Carson for her 2018 cria. Both of her parents have black in their background and her sire has lots of gray. So we hoped that, bred to Kit, she'd produce a black or gray cria. But we got a gorgeous brown boy with such bright fleece, he glows in the sun! She was an easy breeder that took easily at the second try, birthed easily and quickly took to nursing her cria like a pro.

For her 2019 cria, we bred her to our Judges Choice winner Blizzard. The result was a bright golden fawn boy with really nice architecture and amazing hand! We were so thrilled with this boy that we repeated the reading. We can't wait to see what they produce.

We had planned to keep Calypso in our foundation herd. But we've purchased some girls with new genetics for our herd and need to reduce our numbers. Calypso will be a very nice production girl for any herd. Our loss is your gain. She sells with her breeding to Judges Choice winner MHAR Blizzard by Justice and a free rebreed to any unrestricted Menagerie Hill Ranch owned herdsire.
