October Events

posted in: Alpacas, Shows, Uncategorized | 2

There are too many October events!  This year will mark the first time in MANY years that Snowshoe Farm will not be participating in the fall alpaca shows. We did not make this decision lightly, but it makes the most sense for us.  This year, as happens every few years, the fall show in Syracuse conflicts with the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, NY.  The Rhinebeck festival is a big event where we sell a LOT of alpaca … Read More

As we look through our listings of alpacas for sale, we see that we have a number of very good quality breeding females that are currently open. In many cases, this is because these females have been replaced by their daughters in our breeding program. We are going to begin offering some of these females at sale prices to encourage their use in your breeding programs. These are proven good mothers with excellent genetics. Our first offering is Starry’s Venus, … Read More

Alpaca Showtacular 2016

Last weekend (Oct 21 – 23) Ron took three yearling alpacas to the Showtacular alpaca show in Syracuse. This show combines the Empire Show and the NEAOBA Show into one long weekend. We were very pleased that all three of our alpacas ribboned in both shows against some very tough competition. The best result of the weekend was a second place finish by Snowshoe Sweet Cicley in the NEAOBA Show. This beautiful yearling female will be ready to breed in … Read More

Yearling Alpacas

We’ve had a number of inquiries as to why we don’t show prices on the three yearling alpacas we have listed for sale.  Often, we don’t bother to list our younger alpacas for sale until they are a bit older. For the most part, we just like to wait and see how the alpacas do as they mature. We’re not only looking at fleece quality, but conformation and overall health and vitality. Our current sales list includes three alpacas that were … Read More

And the winner is…

The first weekend in April was the combined North American Alpaca Show and Northeast Alpaca Expo in MA.  We’re very pleased with our 2 year old white male, Snowshoe Ammonoosuc, who took second place in both shows behind a spectacular male from Cas-Cad-Nac Farm. Like his two brothers before him, Ammo has very fine and dense fiber with well defined crimp. He has excellent coverage on a large, well-proportioned frame. We anticipate Ammonoosuc will hold his fineness as he matures, … Read More

Spring!

While many alpaca breeders in the US are on their way home from our national alpaca show, some of us chose not to risk a drive to Indiana in March. This may have been a mild winter, but the chance of running into bad weather on that trip was certainly a deterrent for us. We are looking forward to our first alpaca shows of the season starting on April 1. The North American Alpaca Show and the Northeast Alpaca Expo … Read More

Introducing Snowshoe Ammonoosuc!

We knew we had another winner when this male was born three years ago. Snowshoe Ammonoosuc is growing up to be the spitting image of his big brothers, Snowshoe Aristides and Snowshoe Astraios. Both brothers are champions sporting beautiful fiber with lasting fineness. Now, at almost three years old, Ammonoosuc will take center stage in our breeding program. Check our Open Herd listing to read more about Ammonoosuc. To put the spotlight on Ammoonoosuc, we are offering a limited number of … Read More

Congratulations and thank you to Lynn Edens of Little Creek Farm, the new owner of Snowshoe Aristides!

You heard it here first!  We are offering our multi-champion herdsire, Snowshoe Aristides, for sale at the Showtacular Pen Sale in Syracuse, NY on Oct 23-25. We are so proud of Aristides.
