Description

With the release of the 2013 EPD reports from ARI, Legend finds himself right there with the top of all alpacas! With his AFD of -1.739 ranking him 366 out of 14637, you know he’s going to add fineness to his cria! That's nearly 2 microns he'll drop his progeny's fineness!

Legend has settled a number of girls this Fall, with the pregnancies confirmed for crias in late 2014. So after that success, his breeding fee will be going up! Take advantage of this great price to add some great Snowmass genetics and Legend’s amazing EPDs to your program now!

Snowmass Velvet Legend…Fawn with Black Points & Hidden Black Genetics! He is holding his fineness very well, having only lost 0.2 microns by his 3rd year - 18.1 to 18.3!

Legend is out of two influential true black Snowmass Alpacas! His sire is the amazing AOBA World Black Fleece Champion, Snowmass Stirling Legend. Stirling Legend’s 5-year old black fleece was still in the 16 range with his histogram. He was exported to Germany in 2011 and was previously owned by Janus Alpaca and Snowmass Alpacas in Partnership.

Legend’s black dam is Snowmass Velvet Promise, she has an amazing pedigree as well and recently gave birth a few months ago to a True Black Snowmass Matrix Midnight female cria.

Snowmass Velvet Legend can add top world class genetics to improve one’s line of blacks, greys and fawns! He can be bred to virtually any color!
