Legend comes out of the amazing Snowmass breeding program. His sire is the AOBA World Black Fleece Champion, Snowmass Sterling Legend. Sterling Legend's 5 year fleece was still in the 16 micron range.
Legend's pedigree is heavy with black and grey. And his fleece is no slouch either! With a micron count of 18.3 in his third year, his fineness is holding nicely. In fact his 2013 EPDs are stellar! With an AFD of -1.739 and a ranking in the top 2.5% he can make a big impact on our breeding program and yours!
Legend has numerous cria on the ground now with more on the way. Of these cria, more than half are girls! Check out some of their pix... we are confident that his cria will be knockouts! So far he's produced gray when bred to gray and fawn/light when bread to like dams. While we wait for them to grow, we've continued to offer his breedings at an introductory price of $750. But that price will likely rise. Get your breedings now and take advantage of the low price and his great genetics!
Legend has excellent conformation with a square profile, straight legs, correct bite and a wooly top knot. In addition to the fineness, he has a very dense fleece, as you would expect of a Snowmass alpaca. His fleece is also bright and silky, soft with a moderate amplitude crimp that extends up into the neck and down into the belly and legs, and good staple length.
