Female Alpacas for Sale – New!

posted in: Alpacas, Herdsires, Sale | 0

Snowshoe Farm has taken on three lovely young female alpacas that we would like to sell on behalf of their owner, Becky Wadsworth, at Nether Walnut Hill Farm. Becky and her alpacas first came to our attention when she was selling the last of her herd before moving to Scotland. One of the females she offered for sale was Aussie Colorado Philly, a female who, together with the herdsire, Xanadu P Concerto, produced the champion male, Spirit Wind’s Maestro. Now … Read More

Female Alpaca – Sale!

We always make a point of reviewing our herd of alpacas around the first of the year with an eye towards spring alpaca shows, the upcoming birthing and breeding season and updating our sales list. It’s exciting to see last year’s crias now growing into beautiful and healthy young alpacas ready for weaning…and maybe showing. This year we are going to try to offer at least one alpaca at a special price every month. For January, we’re featuring Snowshoe Pleione. … Read More

Proven Females on Sale

posted in: Alpacas, Breeding, Crias, Herdsires, Sale, Shows | 0

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 In many cases, this is because these females have been replaced by their daughters in our breeding program.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

Package Deals

Like many farms, we often package several alpacas together and offer the group at a discounted price.  This is generally to help a client sell the last of their herd or maybe to rehome a few geldings as a group.  But the other package deal we offer as standard practice is what we call a “3-in-1 package” that includes a bred female with a free breeding. We also go one step further and allow that free breeding to be transferred to … 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

Sale – Daughter of Champions

Snowshoe FancyPants is a daughter of two champion alpacas. She gave birth to her first cria last year, a beautiful beige female we named Snowshoe Haiku. FancyPants is an excellent mother. She is an easy keeper and breeder. Her fiber is fine with good character and a soft handle. We’re very pleased with her cria and will very likely rebreed her to the same male, Snowshoe Pharoah. Now that her cria has been weaned, we are offering FancyPants at the … Read More

Champion Herdsire for Sale!

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. At seven years of age, his presence, his fiber and his temperament are still as impressive as ever. This is a male who is doing an excellent job of improving upon the females to whom he is bred. So much so that the majority of our foundation females … Read More
