Snowmass Invincible fits his name, as he beat out the entire US in a growing competitive group of ultimate white alpaca males to take 1st Place in his class at the 2003 All American Futurity of Sires. As if that weren’t enough, he also won overall White Male Champion! There is not an alpaca without Royal production history (out of a line of alpacas that have historical production records) in this males lineage. This alone makes him Invincible. He is phenotypically perfect. Invincible’s wor ...

Here at Tierra Prometida Alpacas, we are thrilled to have Snowmass Touche' in our herdsire line-up. We have been looking for a long time for a males who can geneticallly and phenotypically complement our herd.
We were looking for a male that we could breed to our Elite White females and to our colored production females. In essence, we were looking for a male with Elite Fleece Characteristics--especially with his combination of Density, Fineness, Brightness, and excellent staple formation.

He is the PERFECT MALE to fit our needs! He is INCREDIBLY DENSE exquisitely FINE and has one of the most advanced fleeces with remarkable consistency from head to toe. And he is a compact and typey male who has correct conformation and bite.

Snowmass Touche is truly one of the finest, densest, elite white fleece studs out of the Snowmass Breeding program. He was designed to go over both Elite white and Color production Dams. He has a very unique genetic line up which includes the superior line of Snowmass Maree Love --the Dam to Snowmass QUECHUA and Snowmass INVINCIBLE, Touche's Sire.
The unique and white Elite element to Touche is his Dam, Snowmass Olay--she is the only Sollocota - Allianza line with her fineness in the Snowmass herd.

Here at Tierra Prometida Alpacas, we have had some of our best cria out of this male and it is no surprise when you consider his EPD's One of the characteristics that he transmits the most effectively is STRUCTURE.

In addition to evaluating and validating his conformation and fleece in the show ring, we have done histograms on his fleeces every year. We also did a skin biopsy on him this spring and at 7 years of age, not only has his fleece been amazing in the past, but the current traits he is exhibiting are still remarkable. AND his EPD's demonstrate that he will consistently and reliably pass those traits on to his offspring.

Tierra Prometida’s “Snowmass Touche” was biopsied as a 7 year old white huacaya male with ARI#30408753. His 15X scan demonstrates large fiber clusters very uniform in size and placement. This trait was likely passed from his dam. His density is 76.75 follicles SQ MM of skin and his average S/P ratio based on 25 fiber clusters is 12.0 to 1.
