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.”

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 Starchaser. His Dam side genetics are also very impressive tool His Dam Estrella is a multi-champion and one of our foundation females.
