On to Another Exciting Weekend... 2010 Futurity!

This coming weekend at Heritage Place in Oklahoma City is The Futurity Show, one of the country's largest and most prestigious alpaca events. It draws many of the best breeders from coast to coast, and the Futurity Auction is always one of the most exciting. Just some of the big names we have had the pleasure of watching sell at Futurity have included.... Accoyo Legacy (a multiple Herdsire of the Year), Snowmass Casanova (also a Herdsire of the year, I think!), Snowmass XXtreme (2006 and 2007 Herdsire of the Year, you'll hear that name again here!), Snowmass Enlightenment (2009 Top-seller, son of XXXtreme) and other greats.We needed to make a substitution for our Lot #51, and have decided to use the same strategy we did in the 2000 AOBA Auction when we were asked to fill an empty slot at the last minute. Knowing that we were at a disadvantage without pre-advertising, we chose to put in our most eye-catching, quality, gorgeous, BEST from the top of our herd. That was the year we sold Accoyo Royal Performance and she was the 2nd highest seller. This year we are digging deep and chose to offer..... XXXtremely Sweet!
In just 6 shows, XXXtremely Sweet has won 5 blue ribbons and 3 Color Championships in huge color groups, including being the 2009 AOBA National Brown Female Champion! The judges have RAVED about her extreme fineness and uniformity, size and structure, breed type, presence, "the total package, a clear cut winner!"We agonized over giving her up, however we do own her outstanding dam (Snowmass Sweet Serenity) and a younger brother, SSF Serendipitous is already making a name for himself with a Reserve Championship from his first show and breathtaking fiber stats. Her sire, Snowmass XXXtreme's genetics, however, are not easy to replace. Keep in mind that XXXtreme himself sold for over $250,000 a few years back at Futurity, his son Enlightenment was last year's high seller, now here's your chance for a Champion Female from XXXtreme! Her grandsire on both sides of her pedigree is Royal Rose, who is a Hemingway son, so she has deep genetics for fineness.Sweet is entered in the Futurity, and is then ready to grace YOUR pastures with her beauty and her crias. She's now ready to breed, and we'd be more than happy to bring her back here and breed her to any of our herdsires including El Nino's Accoyo Michelangelo, Snowmass Nova's Private Reserve, Accoyo America Sinbad, or Accoyo Maverick.

Please contact us if you have ANY questions regarding XXXtremely Sweet- I'll be on the road starting Thursday morning and can be reached at 859-428-8883.
