Bronze Dawn combines the best color genetic cross of Snowmass Nova and Snowmass Royal Bronze. Per Julie Skinner "He is one we really should be holding on to..if you ask us the secret to some of the best developing blacks and browns it is these two lines which are the foundation of excellence in darker color in ALL our females and males." "The industry needs these secret ingredients to multiply fine
dark colored alpacas."
Solid conformationally with fine yet extremely dense fleece. Looking for exceptional colored bloodlines that had super density and lingering fineness totally unrelated to any of our herd, we can not be happier to have acquired this outstanding FINE male! He will take our herds to the next level. We have strong bloodlines already...Royal Fawn, Lancaster, Express, and we are ready for the next chapter...and Bronze Dawn should make it a novel worth reading...one you just can't put down!
His ARI heritage includes some of Snowmass best and some significant original Peruvian imports of all times...Peruvian Bueno, Peruvian Drambuie, 4 Peruvian Andean Gold, 4 Peruvian Legacy, Snowmass Peruvian Cassanova, and Snowmass Andean Bronze. His dad Snowmass Royal Bronze whose 6 year histogram is 18.6 with only 2.5%>30. How is that for lingering fineness in a brown? This truly is a ROYAL line...micron of under 20 and a spectacular fleece producing machine.
Bronze Dawn is a 4th generation of strong paternal line of long term ROYAL fleece producers in color. BOTH parents CURRENT histograms are amazing in lasting fineness and very little guard hair. Colored genetics at its finest!
