Wow! This may be the best huacaya we have ever produced! His fleece is BRIGHT with beautiful popcorn bundles and high frequency crimp.

Mas Snowmas is the culmination of a series of breedings we have carefully planned over the years, with each one reaching a higher plateau of perfection. This male is now the pinnacle of all that planning and waiting. A line breed on Matrix (dam is a Matrix granddaughter, sire is a Matrix son) AND a line breed on the incredible Snowmass Quechua--sire of Matrix, Snowmass Best Man, and so many other illustrious offspring. Frankly, in terms of quality, Quechua may have bested his famous son, Matrix! So our little guy was sired by a Quechua grandson but his dam is a Best Man daughter, making Mas Snowmas a Quechua great grandson twice over on his dam's side, as well! And what makes up the rest? How about Caligula's Accoyo Poseidon and a little PPeruvian Camillio for good measure? What a fantastic mix of genetic potential!

Mas Snowmas was cria-shorn at 3 months of age, and the shearer couldn't get over how gorgeous his fleece was. His regrowth is fine and dense, with perfectly formed bundles that break into smaller bundles of bright, crimpy fleece. His coverage is excellent, and his conformation is adorable and perfect. Mas Snowmas will fit nicely in that imaginary box the judges talk about!

He's back from the shows, and the judges were uniformly impressed by his incredible long staple length and bright fleece. AND he sheared more than 11% of his body weight this year, with a 6 1/2 lb blanket.


Watch this space... Mas Snowmas is at our farm in the North San Francisco Bay area.
