Tuscan Gold is setting a new standard of excellence. He is a complete package of perfect conformation, elite fleece characteristics with excellent bundling, brightness, fineness, crimp, uniformity & a superb hand. The brightness of his fleece rivals suri luster. He has total coverage of this fleece from his spectacular head to his toes. And does he have presence! He just knows he is something special. When we check his sheared fleece in at the shows, it invariably gathers admirers. This fleece has earned multiple championships & every specialty ribbon there is, Judge's Choice, Best Brightness, Best Hand, Best Crimp, etc.
Tuscan was chosen as the 2007/2008 breeding partner for multichampion females at such farms as Irish Meadows, The Alpaca Rosa & Pepper Pot Farms, including the one & only Misty Maiden, Dam of the Century, & several of her champion daughters. See these farm websites for details on these champion females and resulting crias.
"This girl is very attractive and caught my eye immediately upon entering the ring," said Senior Judge Jude Anderson at the 2010 GWAS. "She is phenotypically true to type and has excellent coverage on the legs. I am impressed with the staple length of her fleece." Thanks, Jude! That's a great introduction to this lovely female!
Snowbaby has an upright and commanding presence, level top line, excellent bone and great head.
Just look at her 2011 fiber stats: 17.6, 3.8, 21.7 and 1.1. So you know her fleece is fine and consistent. One peek inside also tells you it's bright, and has a long staple and soft hand.
Snowbaby's sire is Sunny Mesa's Tuscan Gold, a 5X Color Champion who has contributed many of his award-winning attributes to his crias. Her dam is SA Peruvian Apollo's Nicolette.
Snowbaby has been bred to Golden Thunder, a 13X champion male with fine, dense, silky fleece on a strong, well balanced frame. We're looking for a 2013 cria out of this pairing, with very fine, dense and consistent fleece!
