Snowmass Sterling Silver - Herdsire

There has never been a more important Grey line than this one. For all that have seen and judged this male he has been represented as the IDEAL in grey alpaca production. In 2002, AWE had a seminar in conjunction with the AWE show called GOLD OF THE ANDES held by Mike Safely, Maggie Krieger, Julio Sumar, Alonso Burgos and others which placed great emphasis on breeding selection for ELITE end textile results.  They lined up all the Champion alpacas at the end of the show to tie into the seminar as well as the entire show attendance and talked about how and why these males and female Champion alpacas were important in the breeding of elite alpacas.

When it came to Sterling Silver the resounding consensus of all the judges and textile experts was he is simple ONE OF A KIND in all that one would expect in a grey stud. You could not ask for much more.

The evenness of his fineness and the astounding density and uniformity was the best they had ever seen in a grey. If ANYONE was to breed for this color this was the STUD to breed to. His excelled in overall density and fineness comes from his Dam who was purchased from and elite alpaca breeder, Bruce Bar.

This was one of his very best females and had no intention of selling her, but she was eventually sold to Snowmass Alpacas and went on to win the Championship in one of the first international shows Judge by Don Julio Barreda in Spokane, Washington.

We bred her to Snowmass Casanova and the results were extraordinary. Sterling Silver’s production has been produced the finest in both Black and grey. This is an exciting opportunity for the discerning grey breeder if there ever was one. There are so very FEW grey males in the entire world who carry this incredible GREY potential.  He is one of the very few to carry these fiber statistics into his age and have the balance of conformation and gorgeous head of which he stamps into all his cria.
