Snowmass Royal Bronze

Huacaya, Male, Proven, Light Brown, Full Peruvian
ARI# 836746 | DOB: 6/23/2002
We are so excited to be bringing these multi-generational Royal grade fiber genetics to the Eastern part of the United States. We feel Royal Bronze's lasting fineness (19 micron at age 7) makes him one of the premier colored studs in the country. With a history of adding color to the dam, Bronze presents an excellent opportunity to make crias darker and finer than their dams. Rock solid conformation, heavy bone, amazing leg coverage and a beautiful head make this stud a phenotypic rock star! ...

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 ...

Bidding Info


Incredible melange of genetics is this gorgeous non fading black young lady out of our Snowmass Silver Fox, with Bueno and Snowmass Peruvian Casanova on mom's sire's side but you have to go to mom's dam, 6 Peruvian Incan Eclipse to find the true black color. 6P Incan Eclipse was one of 3 outstandining black females picked up in the last Peruvian importation,all of whom have contributed to one of the most important black breeding programs in the world.
Dad is the renowned Snowmass Royal Bronze who is notable for his incredible fineness. Mom is production dam for Snowmass Hakuna Matata, a front row black stud in the Snowmass program.
No surprise that Tempest has one of the finest fleeces we've seen. We expect that she will do very well bred to our own Snowmass Midnight Sun.
This pedigree proudly carries the flagships of the Snowmass black lines and we're proud to have Tempest "at port" at Renaissance Ridge.

Follicle testing (Ian Watt):
Density: 49.5/ mm2
Secondary: Primarty Ratio: 10.3:1
In skin primary diam: 24.2 micron
In skin secondary diam: 15.8 micron
