Mario is the son of Everlasting Grace and Elk Jacob. He comes from a long line of superior genetics.
Snowmass Everlasting Grace comes from a long history of top Snowmass alpacas including Snowmass Conopa XXX, Snowmass Best Man, Snowmass XXXtreme, Snowmass Sub-Zero, and Snowmass Quechua. In 2018 and 2019’s EPDs, Grace ranked first in the nation for her MC score. Grace was listed in the Alpaca Owners Association’s 2018 EPD Trait Leaders presentation for her exceptional MC rank. Grace also scored in the top 5% for AFD (micron count) and SF (spin fineness).
Elk Jacob is an Amber Autumn herdsire with Snowmass genetics. He places in the top 5% of 2019 EPDs and has won multiple awards including two Champions, two Reserve Champions, and two first place ribbons.
Mario is still young, but as he matures he is following in the footsteps of his dam and sister. His fiber appears to be dense with wonderful staple length and an amazing crimp structure.
