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 […]
Next weekend is our second and last alpaca show of the spring, the MAPACA Jubilee. We will be showing the same three males who went to the North American Alpaca Show earlier this month: Snowshoe Ammonoosuc who took fourth in his class (which was won by the color champion), Rasalas who took sixth in his […]
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 […]
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 […]
To celebrate 15 years breeding alpacas, Snowshoe Farm is offering 15% off all alpacas and stud fees through the end of 2014! And you can extend the savings by reserving a 2015 breeding now. A deposit will hold a breeding to any of our herdsires – including multi-champion, Snowshoe Aristides – at the 15% off […]
Here’s our newest offspring sired by our multi-champion, Snowshoe Aristides: Snowshoe Pleione. This photo was taken just as we were getting ready to shear her.
This little girl is a pistol. She’s gaining weight like crazy, leads the rest of her group out to pasture and is already chewing her cud at 2-1/2 weeks. That […]
Several years ago, we took in a small herd owned by Starry Mountain Alpacas when the owners, Kim and John, moved out of the country. We’ve integrated a few of the alpacas into our own herd, but for the most part, these females either do not fit our breeding program or are related to our […]
Snowshoe Farm is in the middle of our rather short spring show season (two shows). Nationals is behind us. At that event, we offered a yearling female, Snowshoe Ginger, for sale in the auction and are pleased to announce that the winning bidder was Hickory Meadow Alpaca Farm. We hope this beautiful daughter of Snowshoe […]
The alpaca spring show season is starting early this year – in winter, actually – with the AOA National Conference which will be held in Harrisburg on March 14 – 16.
We decided to make the most of the long drive to PA and participate not only in the show, but also in the auction […]
Over the years, we’ve responded to several requests from clients and friends who have been forced to disperse their herds due to health problems or other life changing issues. As a result, we sometimes have alpacas listed for sale that are being offered on a consignment basis. Currently, we have two such groups of alpacas.
