Snowmass Defiance 

Snowmass Defiance

Huacaya, Male, Proven, White, Full Peruvian
ARI# 31795807 | DOB: 6/12/2009
Snowmass Defiance is one of only a few outside males we have found worthy of incorporation into the Accoyo America white breeding program. His genetics combine the lasting fineness found in the Hemingway and Legacy lines with the low medullation for which the Elite line is particularly well known. His merino-style fleece is maintaining impeccable fineness, uniformity, and high curvature as he enters middle age, and he carries it on a strong frame with impressive substance of bone. We love...

Snow Diamond Sweet Breeze 1 

A Great New Addition to our Program

Snow Diamond Sweet Breeze 1

Huacaya, Female, Unproven, White
ARI# 35149484 | DOB: 7/1/2016
Sweet Breeze is one amazing addition to our breeding program. Breeze is in the 1% club for SD. This will add uniformity to all her offspring.

Defiance has some of the best all around EPD of any herd sire I have researched. And, Breeze is out of Herdsire Snow Diamond Ichauway another EPD gifted stud.

When I saw this beauty stand right after birth, I knew he was special. Even at days old he is compact with so much bone at this young age, it amazed me. Challenge by Defiance is the last cria born out of Snowmass Defiance prior to his export to Europe. Defiance is the only male Lynn Eden found worthy of co-ownership with Snow Diamond Alpacas given her many worthy Herd Sires in her own breeding program.

Challenge is out of Snow Diamond Sweet Breeze. A beauty in her own right. Breeze has density upon density. Breeze's EPDs are completely desirable in all fiber trait values. This pairing has created an elite cria destined to become a basis of ours or your future breeding program. Challenge has the perfect AFD to SD trait percentage for fiber density. He has AFD EPD percentile of 10% to an SD percentile of 1%, this ratio is coined by Lynn Eden as a gross estimation of MASD. He is show ready.

We will consider a co-ownership agreement with Challenge by Defiance. See Challenge's estimated EPDs below.
