AML El Duro's Principio

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Medium Fawn, 7/8 Peruvian
ARI# 30034448 | DOB: 11/15/2005
Principio is a handsome male who has a gorgeous fleece, a beautiful head, great coverage, density and is phenotypically correct. And don’t take our word for it, the judges agreed since he was an 8 time undefeated halter champion. But it doesn’t stop there, as we all know a herdsire is judged by his offspring and Principio has impressed in this aspect as well. The first five crias of his which we entered in the show ring all won either blues or championships. Now that’s a producer. Principio...

Bidding Info


I absolutely love this boy! Heartbreaker will be breeding to several females this fall. He is a medium size male with a sweet personality but what we love best is his bright fine fleece.
Look at his 3 year old histogram numbers! Very Very Happy with that. I did not do a show fleece last year on him and so fine I just couldn't organize it for the show, but I was thrilled with his Championship in the walking fleece in his third fleece! He is a such sweetheart.

Following in both his parents footsteps he is a blend of Principio and Legacy, Barnabus and Felix. Dam Morning Glory is now bred to Snowmass Matrix.

We have several confirmed pregnancies to this fine male from several of our best females. His first cria is here out of Snowmass Alpine Rose and she is all we expected from this match. Named Alpine Melody she will be on our show string next spring.

Driveby breedings available in 2020, after that breedings will be closed
