OUR FAWN HERDSIRES
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."

PATAGONIA'S EL GALAN
4 x Color Champion!
Patagonia’s El Galan has an elegant, soft handle, buttery fleece, and is a strong-boned pure white herdsire that has recently had drop dead crias hit the ground. It is nice to finally select the right breedings for this magnificent male to see his full potential as a sire of champions. El Galan’s progeny truly remind me of what his sire, Patagonia’s Cayo, looked like when he was a juvenile. El Galan’s dam, Patagonia’s Fantasma, has a show record of her own, and is on our foundation herd. El Galan has a nice stature, very crimpy fleece that is remaining soft, bright, and silky. This sire is definitely passing on these wonderful characteristics to his progeny with bundling, beautiful structure, uniformity of micron count and color in their fleece, adding dense, dense fleece and staple length. During the 2017 show season, his stunning juvenile crias have received Color Champion, Reserve Champion, and Blue and Red ribbons.
