Daughters of Champion

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 […]

New Cria from Snowshoe Farm

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 […]

All-female package deal

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 […]

Spring Alpaca Show Season Update

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 […]

AOA National Auction and Show

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 […]

Alpacas for sale on consignment

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.

Celebrating 15 years!

2014 marks the 15th anniversary of the beginning of Snowshoe Farm Alpacas and a life more totally immersed in “all things alpaca” than we ever could have envisioned. It all started with our first alpaca, CT Tela, granddam to our multi-champion herdsire, Snowshoe Aristides. The purchase of our first alpaca was preceded by over a […]

AOBA National Auction

We’re trying something new this year – entering an alpaca in an auction. Since we are traveling to Harrisburg for the AOBA National Conference and Show, we decided to enter an alpaca in the auction that is held as part of the event.

We received confirmation this week that Snowshoe Ginger has been accepted for […]

Show time…already?

The new year is barely underway and it’s already time to start registering for the spring alpaca shows. This year the AOBA National Conference will be held in Harrisburg, PA and that’s a lot closer to home than usual for nationals. So how can we NOT go to this show, even though we risk having […]
