Bidding Info


Snowmass Bright Stars is a unique white female who's sired by Snowmass Chaccoyo, a most handsome son in line with CCNF Arch Angel, both sired by Snowmass Legacy Gold. Bright Stars dam, Snowmass Silver Star, is one of the best Silver Grey females produced by Snowmass Alpacas and is also the dam of Snowmass Enlightenment.

Bright Stars first cria is Snowmass Matrix Belvedere. Belvedere is a 15-time banner winner, 2 time Judge's Choice winner, and multiple blue ribbon winner. Belvedere has sired several champions of his own. More information regarding this outstanding male can be found at snowmassmatrixbelvedere.com.

Cria number two is Snowmass Matrix Perfection, banner winner and part of an unbeatable Produce of Dam pairing with brother Belvedere. Perfection was purchased by Snow Diamond Alpacas and has the distinction of being the dam of the 2017 National Show Best Bred & Owned male. She is the first dam used in Snow Diamond's ET program.

Next up is Mountain Sky's Perfect Ice, a multiple banner winner. Ice is sired by Snowmass Ice Man and owned by Alison Mnich.

Ice is followed by her full brother Mountain Sky's Ice Master. Ice Master is a nicely grown beige male with a dense fleece.

Fifth progeny is a female sired by NWA, LTD Predictor, Mountain Sky's Predictably Fine. She had her first cria in 2017, a very attractive male sired by Snowmass Leader of Legends.

Number six is Mountain Sky's Moondance, a female sired by Maple Brook Barnabus. Moondance had a good start to her show career but a health issue put a damper on the rest of her showing. She is now healthy and ready to be bred.

2016 brought another female, Mountain Sky Legend's Sweet Escape, sired by Snowmass Leader of Legends. Escape is a lovely female who did well in the show ring.

2017 was an exciting year for us as Bright Stars was once again bred to Matrix. The result is a female that is stunning. This young lady is solid in frame plus dense and uniform in fleece. Shezofine is now a member of the Snowmass herd in Idaho.

Finally, Bright Stars is confirmed pregnant once again to Matrix, due early October 2018. As always, this will be a cria that is highly anticipated. UPDATE: Sundance is a wonderful male who now has to fill his big brother's shoes. He is currently on our show team.
