Alpaca Transport

posted in: Alpacas, For sale, Geldings, Shearing | 0

This is a heads up for those who are considering purchasing alpacas from Snowshoe Farm. We do offer to transport alpacas to their new homes, but bear in mind that transport is not available during shearing season. This usually runs early April through mid-to-late June.  Ron’s shearing schedule is booked solid and there’s no time for hauling alpacas until shearing is finished. Yes, we can move alpacas now or starting again in late June. Give us a shout if you … Read More

One of our best!

posted in: Alpacas, For sale | 0

Proven female alpaca on sale! Snowshoe Aria is a daughter of multi-champion Snowshoe Aristides and one of the best female alpacas in our breeding program. Aria, at six years of age, still has a beautiful, crimpy and very fine fleece, just like her sire. We have a number of female alpacas in our herd that are related to Aria, so she is not able to live up to her full potential in our breeding program. Aria is an easy keeper … Read More

Snowshoe Allegro

posted in: Alpacas, For sale, Herdsires | 0

We’ve held out on offering Snowshoe Allegro for sale. We adore his personality. He’s very calm and loves to have his neck scratched. He definitely has his sire’s personality. His dam, Minuette, is a pretty calm alpaca also.  We’re convinced temperament is heritable! And Allegro has gorgeous fiber. Fine and lustrous with a good staple length. But with his sire, El Dorado Prospector, standing stud here and his dam rebred to Prospector for a 2018 cria, we really don’t have … Read More

Alpacas for Sale

Alpacas for sale and on sale! It’s a new year and time to reevaluate our sales list. We’ve slowly been going down the list and adjusting prices. Some up-and-coming young alpacas are being added and a number of older alpacas are having their prices slashed. We’re also lowering prices on certain alpacas to change up the genetics in our herd. When we add an alpaca’s offspring to our breeding program, it sometimes means we have too much of certain bloodlines. … Read More

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

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
