ARI# 840847 | DOB: 9/25/2002
Nuance is an "incredible Incan Black Male from a Royal Line of Elite Fibered Alpacas in Color" from the Snowmass breeding program. Incan Magic, one of Nuance's Grandsires, has a strong history of holding fineness even with age. Incan Magic's dam remains an amazing 16 microns at 9 years of age. Nuance’s Dam, Incan Surprise, has exhibited the same fiber attributes. His sire, Snowmass Nova, has been a multiple champion and is an excellent producer.

Oh My Gosh!

ATV Silver Elation

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Light Silver Grey, 1/2 Peruvian
ARI# 31118149 | DOB: 5/5/2007
Silver Elation is a rare dilute silver gray with an incredibly soft, well bundled and consistent fleece without any spots. This male was born with a distinct Classic Silver Gray pattern which all but disappeared as his fiber dried. Every person who has seen him has been impressed by this amazing fleece that appears platinum in color with white in the neck, bib, face and legs.

When we took him to two very competitive shows in 2008, he was put into an indefinite class which did not allow him ...

Bidding Info


Dolce-Latte is a beautiful vicuna colored Med. Fawn gal with an impressive set of Accoyo and Grey genetics. Dolce-Latte’s dam, Clarita, is a white El Nino daughter out of a Rose Grey Camilio dam. Her sire, Snowmass Nova’s Nuance, is a Bay Black Nova son, and has two well known Grey Grandfathers, Snowmass Casanova and Incan Magic. This combination of Clarita and Nuance was a winning one for us before! Dolce-Latte’s full sister, Choco-Latte, sold in the AOBA 2007 Auction for $27,000. Like her sister, Dolce Latte has an extremely dense fleece with good character and a sturdy frame. Her first cria was born in May 2010; we were pleased not only with the quality of her cria, but also how easy the birth was and at how quickly Dolce-Latte took to motherhood.

Dolce-Latte is currently bred to ATV Silver Elation, an amazing Light Silver Grey male who gave us 3 for 3 -- 3 grey cria out of 3 different colored dams last season. Silver Elation not only produces Grey, his cria all have fine, bright fleeces.

We are offering Dolce-Latte for sale only because we must reduce our herd size; we will be sad to miss out on her 2011 cria! We feel the combination of Dolce-Latte and Silver Elation is likely to produce a spectacular grey cria given their backgrounds.
