What would you get if you crossed the bloodlines of two males who have won herdsire of year two years in a row?
What about if you bred the male who was named the 2009 dark herdsire of the year and reserve light herdsire of the year along with 2008 reserve dark and light herdsire of the year to a dam from Snowmass Aplacas’ coveted, fine fleece ROYAL line?
Or, what would you get if you took the 2008 light National champion and bred him to the most consistent, champion producing bloodlines in the nation?
All those questions have the same answer, you would get a:
Dense, merino style, 14.2 micron, 52.3 curvature Stud out of
Snowmass Matrix and a Snowmass XXXtreme dam named -
Snowmass Royal Destiny XX
Obviously his stats are amazing but wait until you see his pedigree, a pedigree that’s taken over six generations of very selective Snowmass breeding to create.
He’s a rare Matrix offspring out of dam from Snowmass’s Royal line. For those not familiar with the Royal line, this is Snowmass Alpaca’s top line for producing lasting fineness just look at this boy’s stats, they’re incredible. Follow his lineage and you’ll see it in every generation.
Not only is this a rare breeding age Matrix offspring, but you won’t find many pairings of the Snowmass Matrix/Quechua line with Snowmass XXXtreme so this is a rare opportunity to improve your herd in all colors. Unfortunately Legacy, Hemingway, Quechua and Cahuide have recently passed away so these elite genes are becoming even harder to come by. The market value that this ancestry has publicly sold for is in the millions.
Here are just the males in Destiny’s lineage:
Snowmass Matrix – 2008 reserve light and dark herdsire of the year, 2008 light color champion at 55 months
Snowmass XXXtreme – 2006 & 2007 dark herdsire of the year
Snowmass Quechua – 2006 & 2007 light herdsire of the year, National Get of Sire winner
6Peruvian Accoyo Elite -18.2 micron at 6 years old
4Peruvian Legacy – 2007 & 2005 reserve herdsire of the year, 2002 herdsire of the year, National Get of Sire winner
Snowmass Royal Rose – 2002 Fawn National color champion
Peruvian Hemingway (line bred) – 17.8 micron at 3 and 23 micron at 14 years old
Peruvian Bueno (line bred)
Here are some of the legendary dams:
Snowmass Maree Love – the incomparable dam of fineness (see The Making of Champions Part III)
Snowmass Legacy’s Lass
Snowmass Royal Lineage
Snowmass Rose Pearl
His entire line has produced champions in every single color so he’s very versatile. The fleece market exists today and fineness fetches premium prices. Forget fads, if you’re focused on succeeding in the end market of fiber you need a herd that is not only born under 20 microns but that maintains their fineness well into maturity. You need All-Star Stud like Snowmass Royal Destiny who was breed to do exactly that.
Here’s what Snowmass Alpacas had to say about the Matrix:
“THE FINEST FLEECED; HIGHEST CURVATURE QUECHUA SON STANDING IN THE WORLD
Snowmass Matrix is truly one in a million.
He is a compact robust and well proportioned stud, perfect overall score in frame, bite, body, and reproductive anatomy. He has a fleece that extends its superior qualieties over his entire frame.
WITH ONLY 11 ENTRIES HE TOOK RESERVE HERDSIRE OF THE YEAR IN US FUTURITY 2008 IN BOTH LIGHT AND COLOR.
THE CONSISTENCY OF EXCELLENCE IN HIS PROGENY IS BEYOND REFUTE.”
Here’s what Snowmass Alpacas had to say about the Matrix offspring in Lot 3 of their 2008 Parade of Champions Sale:
“This is the first offspring of a limited production from our lead Beige / Light Fawn Snowmass Quechua son, Snowmass Matrix, to be offered for sale. Matrix himself is one of our most treasured and irreplaceable Quechua genetic lines we could not even attempt to place a VALUE on. We highly treasure all Matrix offspring and keep them tightly held in our select breeding program as we do all of Quechua’s offspring. Snowmass Quechua was a phenomenon and his sons are few and RARE. His genetics have taken our herd to the highest level of EXCELLENCE which stands out as the best fiber ever seen on alpaca. The progeny he left behind are producing the same legendary improvements and more…”
Snowmass XXXtreme has 57 offspring, of which 24+ are color champions in every color.
Additionally, here’s what Snowmass Alpacas had to say about XXXtreme:
“His genetic potential is proven in excellence, and after 25 years of selective breeding for the Perfect Color-Producing Alpaca, we are proud to say this is the closest we have come. This stud is exactly what the World Alpaca Market is looking to create in both genetic and textile XXXcellence. Snowmass XXXtreme is the embodiment of all that is Elite in Alpaca.
