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

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.

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

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

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

Summer sale on proven female alpacas

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

It’s the time of year when we finalize our breeding decisions for the season, assess the quality of crias on the ground and otherwise take stock of our herd and our breeding program. Like many long-time breeders (we’ve been doing this since 1999), we have a number of related alpacas. Females that were once the foundation of our breeding program have given us female offspring. Our herdsires have given us female offspring. We do not have room for all the … Read More

Yes, the AOA National Alpaca Show is underway this weekend, but the idea of traveling from Vermont to Nebraska in March did not tempt us even slightly.  So Snowshoe Farm will kick off the 2015 spring alpaca show season in the usual way and much closer to home at the North American Alpaca Show on April 3 & 4 in West Springfield, MA.  We’ll follow up a few weeks later at the MAPACA Jubilee on April 24 – 26 in … Read More

We were very excited that female offspring from our multi-champion herdsire, Snowshoe Aristides, were ready to breed this year.  Our sales list now includes several young bred females that were sired by Ari, including Snowshoe Cari, Snowshoe FancyPants and Snowshoe Aria. Each of these females has a dam that has had an impact on our breeding program and, coupled with their amazing sire, leads us to expect that these girls can be important players in top quality breeding programs. All … Read More

Fall Festival and Show Season

Fall is here and that means a very busy time on the farm! During the next month, most weekends bring either a fiber festival or an alpaca show. Weekdays are filled with getting ready for the next weekend’s event. That means dyeing yarn, skirting fleeces, chasing down all the odds and ends that go into setting up a vendor space at a fiber festival or a farm display at an alpaca show…and paperwork. Lately, I’ve been skirting fleeces for multiple … Read More
