Mary's pedigree isn't very deep. However, her sire was Snowmass Silken Gold. Wait, a suri - from Snowmass? His EPDs indicate ranked top 10% AFD, top 5% SDAFD and top spin fineness, etc. He also took several 1st place ribbons as Get of Sire in various shows including North American Alpaca Show 2011.

Interestingly enough Mary's history shows two 1st places in spin offs. If you notice, entered as different colors - 2013 first place as black, 2014 a 1st place as grey. When I first saw Mary I thought dark brown/bay black but noticed her registration papers said true black and then remembered at one time I had seen a cria of hers that was a flashy medium silver grey. If you look at the pedigree you do see the makings of a rose grey, TB to fawn with MSG in the background.

She had a gorgeous silver grey girl. So we did a repeat breed because we are over the top excited with her beautiful grey cria, by SoCal Greystone's Marquis! That color is spectacular, a light silver grey with a bit of pink tone. Super shiny and fine. She totally broke the cute meter and is friendly! She also has taken some nice ribbons a 1st and a 2nd in walking fleece and two 2nd places in halter. Not bad for the youngest one of the class. Mary & Marquis did it again. This time a handsome guy that I am tempted to name after Sam Elliott. Handsome, tall and a little slim. Time will tell how much of a show stopper he really is. He has lovely colored locking fleece and such a similar disposition to his older sister.

We just love them so much are having a hard time deciding if we should change breeding plans. We are tempted to try Luminary Legacy of Giacomo see if she could have a freckled rose grey - or disregarding color and going for loaded fleece of WI the Admiral.

We had listed her for sale but not positive we want to part with her. Let us if you are interested in leasing Mary to own her cria next year.

This guy is very much like his full sister, Lilac - striking both in looks and in personality. Fleece is fine & shiny - his neck has beautiful lock ...
