Snowmass Holly Bells is the outstanding daughter of the remarkable FEMALE, Followill Holly Go Lightly who sold for an amazing $96,000 at the '05 Snowmass auction. As an added bonus, Holly's dark fawn sire, Snowmass Matador's Magic (the "color maker" at Snowmass for many years; sire of S. Midnight Magic and S. Equinox) has impressive stats as well: 2nd year histogram: 18.5 mic, 3.5 SD, 18.9 CV, 0.8 >30 and even better yet, his 6th year histogram: 21.4 mic, 3.5 SD, 16.2 CV, 1.9 >30.
Holly has a very low scale, bright and extreme soft handling fleece with a very respectable 20.3 micron histogram. She is a very calm young lady, is easy to manage and she gets along with everybody; all traits she passes onto her impressive offspring. Holly is an excellent mother; her births have been easy and unassisted, she has strong, energetic cria and she keeps a very careful watch over them.
As Matrix was awarded the Light Male Color Championship at the '08 AOBA Nationals (at an astounding 55 months of age) I overheard a Snowmass handler say that Julie thinks Matrix's sire, S. Quechua is the best light sire that they have ever produced.

In 2005, an Alpaca stud named Snowmass Invincible sold at auction for a then record $580,000. I did some research into his pedigree and discovered that Invincible had an older brother, still residing at Snowmass. As a breeder, I thought that if my favorite breeding female had two boys in a row, I would probably sell one and keep the better one. (Time would tell that this assumption was indeed correct.) So in February of 2006, I made the largest capital expenditure in the short history of my small Alpaca operation and purchased Highland Lass at auction, bred to Snowmass Quechua.
