Not Actually Sold as he passed away, but I didn't want to delete him as we have his genetics on our farm!

*** NEWS FLASH 7/14/18***
It is with a sad heart that I have to post that Snowmass Enlightened passed away today peacefully in our pasture. He had congestive heart failure which was confirmed at Oregon State Vet School and we were treating him with medicines, but he had too much leakage in the valves in his heart. We are happy that we have 9 females pregnant to him this season and 1...

Crystal has Sold.

Tiara’s Crystal is, plainly stated, one of our best Grey females on the farm. We purchased her as a cria at side with her Dam, Diamond’s Tiara. This pair was a special purchase not only because Crystal was an outstanding cria, but also because Tiara even at 6.5 years of age still had a beautiful look and fleece; no surprise given her genetics! Crystal’s quality was no surprise either, as she is a Rincon Cloud daughter. Crystal went on to develop into an outstanding adult, w...

Bidding Info


Skyline Alpacas had the most awesome Snowmass Enlightened boys in 2015 and we held onto our two best, Skyline’s Bold Accent and Skyline’s Iolite. Both these boys took Blue Ribbons at the 2016 Alpacapalooza and then each got a Red Ribbon at the 2017 AOA Nationals in Denver this March. We absolutely love these boys but realize now we need to reduce the number of males in our breeding herd, and we do own both Enlightened and their dams.

What is truly amazing about these boys is their fineness, their density and their incredible staple length. Soon I’ll post some more recent pictures of the boys and their outstanding fleece –once it stops raining! I like both these boys equally! Here is a little bit about each of them.

Skyline’s Iolite is a gorgeous Light Silver Grey out of our beautiful Rincon Cloud daughter, Tiara’s Crystal. Again, another impressive package of genetics that produced this amazing boy. Iolite is named for a pale blue/purple gemstone. Iolite’s color was so gorgeous as a cria we wanted to name him after a gemstone, especially since his grandmother’s name was Diamond’s Tiara. Like nearly all of our Enlightened offspring, Iolite is extremely uniform across his blanket, has impressive density, staple length and fineness. Just look at his 2016 histogram: 17.1 AFD, 3.5 SD, 20.4 CV, 0.7 %>30u.

We know he will be an outstanding herdsire for his new owners, and again, we hate to part with him.
