BUY WHITNEY AND RECEIVE A BREEDING TO MAJESTIC'S A MAN AMONG MEN TO GO ALONG WITH THE PRICE, WHITNEY BRED OR A GIRL OF YOUR OWN. We are pleased to announce that Whitney Snow will again be featured at 2016 AOA Nationals for EPD traits. Whitney is No. 2 in the nation for Crimp. Whitney is ranked number high for SDMC. Whitney is truly an amazing dam, having fiber that is #2 out of over 35,000 tested animals. Our Whitney has 4 fiber trait EPDs ranked in the 1% ranking in the nation. Whitney will be bred A Man Among Men, this pairing will truly be world class. Whitney has had 3 offspring and has had effortless births, plenty of milk and healthy cria. What can you say about Whitney except she is the ideal foundation dam. We have a number of babies from Whitney and none of them shear fleeces of less than 9 lbs. Her staple length is her only fault, but she makes up for it density. Her staple length looks short because of this amazing tight crimp.

At age eight, she carries a histogram AFD of 21, and has incredible density, uniformity, and even more amazing longevity. Even more impressive her 8 year old histogram has just slightly over 4 standard deviation of fineness. She is fine and consistently fine. Whitney is a rare genetically gifted Dam.

Whitney has given us two herdsire quality offspring as her first two crias. Whitney's two male offspring both of hersire quality. Colusa Riverside Alpacas breeding program is to take the best of our dams EPDs and breed to the best EPD of other traits the dam is lacking, taking care not to diminish any of the progress made in the breeding program to date. Whitney's father Snowmass Snow Cloud was recently honored for having the top overall EPDs in the nation. Snow Cloud was only one of 75 alpaca honored by AOA. Whitney has all those same traits as her father.

There is Hemingway EPDs and Snowmass EPD heritage all around in this dam. Still young with many cria ahead in her future. She would be the perfect candidate for embryo transfers in other dams. Here is this girls 2016 EPDs:
