Gun's A'Blazin' did in fact come into our herd in a "blaze" and took us through an incredible ride as a youngster.
He was without question the best fleeced alpaca that we had seen in our herd. He went on to have a brilliant show career and start his breeding career at only 23 months of age.

He was biopsied and follicle tested by Ian Watt and as of July 2010, is th...

Her sire, Legacy Gold, sold for $500K at the Snowmass 2006 auction. Small wonder. He is sire to the incomparable Snowmass Invincible.

Her dam is also dam to Snowmass Nova, Snowmass Drambuie's Braveheart and Snowmass Magic Midnight. Now there's a genetic power house.

Her 2007 cria, Snowmass Midnight Sun now stood on our herdsire row after winning multilpe championship banners and coming back with not only incredible histograms, but on of the very best follicle density skin biopsy performe...

Bidding Info


Legato Grigio is the assimilation of the 2 most important lines that we wanted to bring to our grey breeding program. He comes by his elite fleece not unexpectedly.

Dad is RR Gun's A'Blazin' who has now shown by both histograms, and follicle skin testing that he is consistantly producing fineness, density and uniformity and was a 15 time banner winner.

Mom, Snowmass Golden Dreams, has been one of our best producers. We have amassed countless banners from her offspring, among whom is our pre=potent herdsire Snowmass Midnight Sun.

LG has demonstrated his pepotency repeatedly in his production. He is able to transmit solid grey as a dominant, in many shades. His progeny, as tested by histograms and biopsies (to date) attest to his prepotency...take a minute to check the stats on his offspring. There is but one to date that is not still in our herd...we have retained them all.
His non grey production has championed in solid colors, fawn and black in particular.

His pattern appears to be a spotting, not tuxedo , pattern and we have used him on solid colors with excellent success.

He has not been bred to tuxedo patterns in the past, but this year he has been bred to grey and rose grey tux girls. It will be exciting to see what he will produce! He has not produced any blue eyed whites.

The numbers don"t lie:

2012 16.0/ 3.9/ 23/ CF 100%/ length 90mm
2013 18.3/ 4.1/ 23/ CF99%/ length 105mm
2014 17.3/ 3.85/ 22.24/ CF 100 length 90.0
2015: 19.3/ 4.3/ 22.3/ CF 97.3 length 90mm

Biopsy (Alpaca Consulting/ Ian Watt):
Density 64.6/mm2
S/P ratio 11.8:1
In-skin mean primary fiber diameter: 25.9 SD 2.8
In-skin mean secondary fibre diameter: 20.6 SD 2.8
Excellent density well supported by an above average S:P ratio and very uniform fiber populations, among the best recorded for this color to date.
