Bidding Info


Brandy is a beautiful girl with a typey head, and a fleece at 3 years old with a 22.0 AFD and a curvature of 49. Her 2012 cria, Apollo, was a duplicate stamp of herself with wonderful crimp and character just like mom and the herdsire, Snowmass Rock Star XX, with to-die-for head coverage, fine, fine, fleece, and tremendous conformation.

On November 25, 2013 Brandy had a true black male cria, Wicked Tinker, with incredibly dense crimpy fleece – one of our best 2013 cria. Tinker took the blue and reserve color champion at the 2014 Gold Country Gathering for male black juvenile. He’s sired by Snowmass Andean Midnight, an exceptional true black herdsire whose cria are quite lookers with their sire’s magnificent fineness. Snowmass Andean Midnight should retain fineness for years to come and those who need to add proven genetics of fineness, brightness and handle will appreciate the Royal Blacks from Snowmass! He is one of their best! Snowmass Andean Midnight is a beautiful, compact, true black “silky soft” male with an outstanding pedigree for fineness. His fiber is incredibly soft and shiny with a silky look and feel. It has a uniform low amplitude high frequency style of crimp. You have to see it to believe it. His grandsire is non other than Andean Bronze, the sire of Royal Bronze – from Snowmass’ vicuna type alpacas who retain fineness under 20 microns after reaching maturity.

On November 8, 2014 Brandy had a gorgeous modern dark silver grey boy, Baratheon, out of our champion modern silver grey herdsire, Morning Star's Don Diego, a Rincon Cloud son. We were so pleased with this cria we repeated the breeding, and on November 6, 2015 Brandy had a exceptional true black male cria, Baelish. Brandy is an easy keeper, and a great mom with lots of milk.

Brandy produced an absolutely stunning harlequin/appaloosa female in January 2018, sired by our blue ribbon appaloosa herdsire, Escher!
