Snowmass Alpine Rose

Huacaya, Female, Proven, White, Full Peruvian
ARI# 31795616 | DOB: 6/26/2009
HERITAGE STUD FEMALE-Our top pick of young females at the Snowmass Auction, we were thrilled to be able to purchase Alpine Rose. High frequency crimp from topknot to toes, chest to tail. Fineness without sacrificing density, very bright with a super long staple, we can't believe our luck!

We believe dam lines are most important in the genetic lineup. Rose's dam, an 11 year old Hemingway daughter Andean Snow has lasting crimp, fineness, and brightness like that of a two year old. Rose looks ...

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Medium Fawn, 7/8 Peruvian
ARI# 3214444 | DOB: 6/15/2011
Snowmass Royal Challanger, Caligula, and double Bueno. His med fawn fleece is crimpy, soft, consistent over the blanket and on the legs, neck and head. Exceptionally long staple length. On the small side like his sire, he has a stocky build, full coverage and also inherited the Royal Challanger headpiece. He is all we hoped he would be.

9/20/2015 Sage has four fabulous cria on the ground two males and two females, all are dark fawn and darker than himself and the dam. It was hard to impr...

Bidding Info


Very high frequency crimp on this granddaughter of Snowmass Conopa and great granddaughter of Snowmass Quechua. All Snowmass genetics if you care about that. She will make a great foundation female.

A beautiful statuesque girl with nice structure to her fleece, I would focus on a longer staple length for her. Conformation is excellent. Unfortunately the shearer ruined her cria fleece with dull blades so we do not have a first year histogram on her, but I have sent in a histogram on her second fleece and fleeces sample on request.

Velvet's sire is fawn Conopa son Snowmass Vicuna Gold. Velvet's dam Snowmass Alpine Rose produced a female cria Alpine Melody this year that we will be keeping as replacement for Velvet and her dam.

A very nice girl at a reasonable price with definite possibility of color! Pure Snowmass genetics.
Velvet was exposed to Snowmass Challanger son, Golden Sage at the end of October but not rebred due to the lateness of the year. If she is not pregnant no breeding is included at this reduced price. If she is pregnant, You Got a Bargain!!!
