Every once in a while a herdsire arrives on the scene that turns everyone's head. Enlightenment is just that herdsire.
Per Snowmass Alpacas, "Enlightenment is the most magnificent grey stud we have ever produced". Per the 2009 Kentucky Classic Judge, without a doubt, best male animal in the show. This stunning male combines perfect confirmation and magnificent fleece. He is the "Total Package".
Enlightenment is co-owned with Front Range Alpacas. Beginning July, 2009, Enlightenment becomes a restricted herdsire and outside breedings will be limited to 5 per year at both Heatherbrook Farms and Front Range Alpacas. Until July, 2009, Heatherbrook Farms is offering introductory breedings at $3000 for customers of Heatherbrook Farms that have purchased females or jr. herdsires.
Enlighten your Grey and Black breeding program with the most magnificent Snowmass Grey Stud ever produced.
Lovely Jillian has much alpaca royalty in her heritage. Her dam is a striking MSG grand daughter of PPPeruvian Misty Maiden, a legendary dam with many championship lines to her credit. Her grand sire, SCA Peruvian Desert Sun is the Champion result of the pairing of Misty Maiden to 4Peruvian Black Magic...and that is only one side of her pedigree. Jillian's sire is Snowmass Enlightenment most notably recognized by many as the 54 month old MRG male who took RESERVE CHAMP at the AOBA Nationals in 2009. Enlightenment is the product of the highly advanced Snowmass breeding program and his lineage includes more than a few impact sires of note: Hemingway, Bueno, Royal Rose, Casanova, XXXTtreme...get the picture? The resulting female is a compact, stylish package exhibiting perfect conformation. Jillian has a "signature" Enlightenment head with a stunning "crown" of a topknot. She is densely packed with silky, fine fleece and the architecture of that fleece is consistent, neck to hip. Her first shearing revealed a 17 micron (fawn from 2 greys!). She was shorn for the second time on our farm the first of June. I may want to get your hands in that fleece! We are planning a very special breeding for Jillian this fall. I can't reveal all the details but I can tell you we will be crossing two Multi-Champion Grey lines and are just too excited to see the potential results! Stay tuned but expect that price to go up OR Jilly may just come off the sales list altogether!
