Every livestock breed has that one Stud that defies all others not just in looks but possess every element of excellence the breed calls for. In the alpaca its mostly about the fleece.
Fineness of micron - Brightness and soft handle - good staple length - curvature - density with low primary fiber production, and most importantly uniformity of all these traits.

Snowmass Elite Legend possess these qualities and continues to produce them year after year.

The other elements putting a stud above others is for the stud to have the perfect conformation including the ideal head which for our breeding program is a key signature for our breeding program.

Snowmass Elite Legend possesses every element we could ask for.

He has been used exclusively over our white females because of his excellence and purity in clear bright white genetics. We rarely use him over colors as are trying to selectively breed for prediction of solid color.
We have many Elite Studs in color that we have developed that are used over our colored Dams.

We have however found that both our color and white lines are becoming close. Line breeding is essential for locking in desired traits but this can only be taken so far. There is a time for new genetic lines which is why we have chose to breed Elite Legend to a few of our strong colored females. The outcome was so remarkable that we realize the importance of bringing him into color breeding on a strategic level.

Snowmass Elite Legend has graced the North American Alpaca breeding programs with his progeny who one after the other carries on his excellence and the vital excellence in fleece we need to have in large quantities to bring the North American Alpaca Industry to the heights of the finest alpaca fiber producers.

Snowmass Alpacas is proud to say that Snowmass Elite Legend is the most distinguished White Huacaya Stud standing in the WORLD.

Aside from his accolades in Shows Elite Legend's fiber production across his progeny are the most VALUED elements of his success.
