Snowmass Messiah

Huacaya, Male, Proven, White, Full Peruvian
ARI# 815629 | DOB: 8/29/1999
Don't mess with Mess! This imposing Herdsire was one of four sons of the famous Peruvian Snowmaster originally in the North American Alpaca Stud and as his show record indicates, he takes a backseat to no one. Combining his fantastic conformation with the elite fiber attributes one would expect of his genealogy, Messiah really stands out from the pack.

His offspring (and now their cria) consistently make their presence felt in the CCNF show strings. In fact his daughter, CCNF Saphira, argua...

17 Microns at 15 years old!!!!!!!! HOLY COW!

Juliana is the maternal Sister of Jean, Jericho's dam! How's that for genetics?

Juliana is full Peruvian - 1/2 Accoyo, with beautiful, crimpy, fine fleece. Even at fifteen years of age she is maintaining her superb fineness and fleece character. Look at her Fiber Analysis stats and notice how incredibly consistent her fleece has been through the years. Her Average Fiber Diameter has only varied 2.6 microns over nine years!

Description

As-of Jan. 2017, Snowstorm offspring took home a halter class banner from the AOA/AOBA National Show 3 out of the last 4 years, and brought home 1st place halter ribbons from the AOA/AOBA National Show 5 out of the last 6 years.



In addition to being a multi-champion himself... Snowstorm's offspring have received 30 banners and over 100 1st & 2nd place ribbons. His ability to endow offspring with excellent conformation and advanced fleece traits has been validated in the showring, with offspring receiving many color champion & judges choice awards. From his first cria to the most recent one who was awarded Color Champion in both AOA National Halter & Fleece shows in 2016.



"Fineness, crimp, density, uniformity, coverage, excellent conformation, and a beautiful head. This alpaca is the TOTAL PACKAGE." Those were the words of Dr. Julio Sumar (Peru) when he was awarding Snowstorm his first blue ribbon.


If you're looking for more objective data, check out his EPDs. Of standing studs that have Color Championships in a halter class, Snowstorm has the highest published EPDs for improving fineness, and also the highest for curvature. While individual traits are important, we breed for a combination of traits. Snowstorm is the top male for improving fineness, curvature, and fleece weight of standing studs with halter banners. (based on 2016 EPDs - top 20 AFD sorted by MC - Snowstorm is #1, and has the highest AFW of halter champions).

Snowstorm had an 18 micron fleece in year 1, and only a 20.3 micron fleece in year 6.  At 15 years old he had a 21 micron AFD on his 2018 histogram. That's the kind of lingering fineness everyone should be breeding for. His first year histograms were taken at shoulder, mid-side, and hip. The AFD scores were all between 18.0 and 18.4 micron, showing amazing uniformity. Not only is he fine and consistent, but he shears over 10 lbs of fine, uniform fleece.

Snowstorm is a grandson of SNOWMASTER who was sold to a farm in Australia for $250,000 and then imported back to Peru because of his incredible genetics. There are very few male offspring in this country to carry on his incredible genetics. Snowstorm is one of them.

By any measure he is an impressive and unique herdsire. Based on EPDs, progeny, pedigree, and measurable traits, we know he'll improve the offspring of just about any female.
