SNOWMASS PURE PASSION:
Huacaya, Male, Proven | Light Fawn
ARI# 31140089, D.O.B. 11/18/2007
“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."

ESTATES LEGENDARY PICASSO
Huacaya, Male, Proven | Light Fawn
ARI# 35251934, D.O.B. 4/19/2016, 3/8 Peruvian, 1/2 Chilean
8x Champion & Numerous Blue Ribbons!
Meet our gorgeous light fawn 8x Champion & multi Blue Ribbon Winner, Estates Legendary Picasso, a proven herdsire with his first offspring on the ground in 2019. Judge Amanda VandenBosch assessed Picasso in May 2019 as an A- stating, "Picasso in maintaining fineness, has high frequency style crimp, uniformity across the blanket, good length to staple, use over color, and good cross back over Pure Passion offspring." He was biopsied at 4.5 years by Dr. Norm Evans, DVM who said, "True Genetic Density: 80.5 follicles SQ MM; AFD: 16.53. Picasso's 250X scan which magnifies at 1000 times amazes me. Picasso shows only 20% of his secondary fibers have a degree of medullation. This male shows many strong genetic traits that should pass to his offspring. He has retained his fineness of fiber"
Picasso is sired by our very Andean's Pegasus of Country Estates. Pegasus has genetics from PPeruvian Caligula, 4Peruvian Andean Gold, Snowmass Andean Bronze, and his sire, the stunning TB Snowmass Andean Midnight, a beautiful, compact, true black “silky soft” male with an outstanding pedigree for fineness.
His ribbon winning dam is the daughter of Patagonia's Ernesto, our magnificent Judge's Choice, 7x Champion & 5x Get of Sire award winning light brown herdsire. Lindeza also gifts Picasso with the legendary genetics of her grandsires - Patagonia's Lennox and Nishio.
Picasso was on our 2016 - 2019 show strings, and is an is an 8x Champion who has received numerous blue ribbons as well.

Huacaya, Male, Proven | Medium Fawn
AOA# 35257059 D.O.B. 8/19/2014
5/8 Peruvian, 3/8 Chilean
Four centuries ago, in India, Emperor Shah Jahan fell hopelessly in love with Princess Mumtaz Mahal. He dedicated the Taj Mahal to her and had the elegant Gardens of Shalimar built for her as well. The Shalimar Gardens were laid out as a Persian paradise garden intended to create a representation of an earthly utopia in which humans co-exist in perfect harmony with all elements of nature. This enchanting tale was the inspiration of our Estates Shalimar. Shalimar is a gorgeous medium fawn male with a clean blanket. He has dense, fine fleece with a soft handle.
Shalimar's sire is none other than 7x Champion Crescent Moon’s Simtustus, a medium fawn male from two gray parents and WOW fleece! Even though he is a fawn, Simtustus contributes significant grey genetics to his offspring, along with fineness and advanced fleece characteristics.
Shalimar's double blue ribbon winning dam is Snowmass Starz Sunrise. Judges Jude Anderson and Jill Marcellus awarded Snowmass Starz Sunrise a Blue Ribbon for Produce of Dam at the 2018 Alpacapalooza, with her off spring ESTATES PASSION'S NEW FALLEN SNOW (a white yearling) and ESTATES SHALIMAR (at almost four-years-old). She followed that up with a second Blue Ribbon for Produce of Dam at the 2018 CABA Classic show awarded by Judges Peter Kennedy & Diana Timmerman.
