TP Azlan of Legend is stunning and is the complete package....conformation, substance of bone, fineness, density and huacaya type and style. He is amazingly bright. Tierra Prometida donated Tierra's Zada with Azlan (5 weeks old) at her side to ABR for auction. We immediately knew Azlan was something special.

The combined genetics of Snowmass Elite Legend and Tierra's Zada are amazing. Density, Fineness, Extreme Brightness, Lack of Medullation, and most importantly, uniformity of micron and consistency. His 3 yr old fleece received an Advanced Fleece Award at the 2019 AOA International Fleece Show.
Azlan's 2019 cria is amazing, FIR Azlan's Elite Pearl is fine bright and has the microbundles we expected.
Azlan has some amazing 2020 crias on the ground at Flying Iron Ranch.

In The American Alpaca Journal Issue 2: January 2020 published by Little Creek Farm/Accoyo America and Snowmass Alpacas, Lynn Edens writes the article titled Breeding to Win: An Analysis of the Genetics of Blue Ribbon Show Animals. Specifically analyzing alpacas in the white male classes Lynn says:
“Snowmass Elite Legend was by far the most important living sire represented in the collective pedigrees of the winning white male group: 18 of the 60 winning white males were produced by Elite Legend or descendants of his, and they were produced by 14 different breeding programs. He meets every test of prepotency for the production of show stock.”
Azlan is closed to outside breedings but we have his offspring and females bred to him for sale.
The owner of Snowmass Elite Legend announced that he is no longer settling females. Snowmass Elite Legend genetics can only be obtained from his offspring. We are fortunate to have these elite genetics in Azlan.
