SNOWMASS PURE PASSION:  

Huacaya, Male, Proven | Light Fawn

ARI# 31140089, D.O.B. 11/18/2007

5/8 Peruvian,

“Snowmass Pure Passion is the most magnificent Light Fawn Matrix son Snowmass Alpacas has ever produced.”
~ Snowmass Alpacas LLC.

Snowmass Alpacas explained that Snowmass Pure Passion represented 30 years of passion in breeding for the perfect colored fleece on the most beautiful bodied alpaca. When Pure Passion was born, they stated that he was one that you could not take your eyes off. His fleece is extraordinarily fine, and gloriously bright, showing consistency of excellence from top to bottom as his pedigree would predict and his histograms reflect. Snowmass Pure Passion was first shown in 2009 at AOBA Nationals where he was awarded 1st place as well as Champion. In 2010, he took a 2nd to his brother Snowmass Matrix Elite in two shows, International Alpaca Odyssey and the Futurity, with the judges stating that Matrix Elite was denser but Pure Passion finer. Correctly so, as you see in his 5th fleece which measures 17.0 AFD. Snowmass Alpacas further stated "If you asked us to show you what we think an ideal alpaca looks like, we would take you to the pasture to see Snowmass Pure Passion."

Stud Fee: Pure Passion's breedings have now closed. We have selected top quality females to breed to Pure Passion.

 
We also have several extraordinary beautiful females bred to Pure Passion available for sale.

ESTATES PASSIONATE FEVER

Huacaya, Male, Unproven, Light Fawn

AOA# 35602668   D.O.B. 6/14/2018

 

6x CHAMPION and 2x JUDGE’S CHOICE WINNER!

This handsome light fawn male has a fabulous pedigree. Passionate Fever is the son of Snowmass Pure Passion, our outstanding 2x Get of Sire and champion producing herdsire. Passion represents 30 years of passion in breeding for the perfect colored fleece on the most beautiful bodied alpaca. Snowmass Alpacas said, “Snowmass Pure Passion is the most magnificent Light Fawn Matrix son Snowmass Alpacas has ever produced.”  Fever's maternal grandsire is Patagonia’s El Galan, our magnificent 4x champion and multiple blue-ribbon winning herdsire out of Patagonia’s Cayo. His maternal great-grandsire R&R Oliver Twist has consistently produced outstanding offspring in Canada and the U.S., that exhibit fine, uniform micron in their fleeces, along with crimp and correct, solid conformation.

Passionate Fever has been a superstar in the show ring. As a juvenile, he won Light Male Color Champion and the Judge's Choice award at the 2019 California Classic Round Up. Jude Anderson awarded Fever the Color Championship at the 2019 CABA Classic, out of a class of 17. He also received Reserve Champion & 1st Place at the 2019 Alpacapalooza show! In addition, Fever brought home Blue Ribbons at the 2019 The Futurity, 2019 California Classic, 2019 AOA National Shows & Fever helped ACE bring home a 1st Place Ribbon at the 2019 California Classic for Breeder's Best Three. Fever went on to win the Color Championship and his 2nd Judge's Choice award at 2019 Gold Country Gathering, where Fever and his siblings also won Pure Passion a blue ribbon for GET of SIRE.!


In 2019, Fever was evaluated as an A+ by senior AOA Judge Amanda VandenBosch. "He has excellent substance of bone, balance to frame, fiber coverage, good organization within staple, maintains consistency across fleece, moves to the extremities to neck, good density relative to fineness." Jill Marcellus said, "He’s a very refined looking male. Moderately sized, right in the middle there, & that can be very useful in a breeding program. He’s got good balance & proportion, excellent substance of bone, a very typey male with a good strong phenotype. I really like his head style as well. His fleece is very fine & exceptionally uniform in all the fleece traits. I pulled samples from all over the place on him and really there is virtually no difference from mid-side to right into the front shoulder area to over to the hip. That also carried through with the staple type and also the expression of character through the fleece. It’s very uniform right across his body and underneath his belly."
