girl is the type we all need more of on our ranches. She's sweet.
She has great coverage. She has a beautiful long staple length. She's
got an expressive crimp that runs quite evenly throughout. She's super
dense. She is our alpha female and will add superior quality to
anyone's herd. What more can we say? Well...
Her maternal brother is
Premier's Absolute, who is known nationally as one of the top gray males
in the country, and who Julie Skinner of Snowmass Alpacas
praised—he sold for $150,000 at the Futurity!
Her sire is an incredibly fine
vicuna style male named Alpha Romeo of Genesis who has a fine,
uniform fleece that maintains it's baby-soft handle into maturity.
Romeo's dreamy fleece features medium amplitude & medium frequency crimp,
and his dam is believed to have a vicuna background.
Cameo's dam was Snowmass' Don
Julio's Prestige, and her maternal grandsire is Don Julio from
the first Peruvian import. Cameo's genetics are definitely World
She ribboned in the 2008
Arkansas Alpaca Adventure before she began to breed. Reiling's Nova's
Gold was chosen for her maiden breeding as an excellent match for her.
Her first cria elicited "oohs" and "ahhs" from the Reiling's visitors.
Being bred to Snowmass
Porteus who is out of Snowmass XXXtreme has us tremendously
thankful as the untimely passing of Porteus limits his gene pool for the
rest of us. Porteus was simply one of those rare Alpacas with
tremendous fineness into maturity and unbelievable conformation in a large
December 2, 2010 saw Cameo give
birth to our first cria: PORTEUS' PERFECT CADENCE. She has a
beautifully shaped head with full fleece coverage. Her form is
outstanding. Her first show as a Modern Rose Gray was in a
competitive class of 7 grays at the Amarillo Hi-Plains Alpaca Show.
She took home a 2nd place red ribbon, then topped that with a 1st place
blue ribbon at the February, 2012 TxOLAN show in Ft. Worth. We could
not be more pleased!

SHR SWEETPEA MIDNIGHT
ARI #30809819 ~ DOB: 06/06/2009
What can we say about Sweetpea?
Great genes from her sire help her exhibit true black
color. Fineness is the signature quality when you touch her fleece.
She obviously brings that
fleece characteristic to bear through her sire, Snowmass Royal Flush who is
pure Alpaca with no DNA markers for Llama. Her first histogram at 10
months was a nice 20 microns!
Her grandsire, Snowmass Andean
Bronze, was the 2001 All-American Alpaca Futurity 1st Place Winner & Color
Champion and the 2001 AOBA National Fleece Show 1st Place Winner. With
WHR's Violet as her dam who is a true black and Royal Flush's dark rose gray
genes, she presages a future with much great color.
Sweetpea, whose compact size &
fineness are among her hallmarks, has weaned our third cria born here at Aubrey
Oaks Alpacas. She was bred to our own proven sire, Snowmass Nova's
Pluro, who himself exhibits excellent density, large bone structure & solid
conformation. With both of them being true
black, it was no surprise to see Midnight Masked Phantom arrive on
03/27/2012 with a solid black blanket. We have been blessed to see his
high-frequency crimp from Pluro combined with Sweetpea's fineness.

is our 1st place
blue ribbon winner at
the TxOLAN 2012 Show. Her staple length this
year at shearing was astounding—between 6 to 6.5 inches! The crimp she
exhibits is moderate but highly pronounced throughout her long fleece. Her
coverage is solid. Her conformation is excellent. She has
inherited the superb qualities of her sire, Snowmass Porteus'—praised
by Snowmass as the best XXXtreme son ever born, and her dam's
(Cameo) own superb qualities—fleece, bone structure, temperament and
Some of her judge's comments at
her first show in Amarillo were: ·
Extreme fineness in her fleece ·
A softness of touch ·
Density with consistent micron ·
Long staple length for her age ·
A beautiful color—"I'd love to see a sweater made from that color!"
Her judge at TxOLAN in February, 2012 succinctly stated, "She's the total
package!" In the 2013 TxOLAN Fleece Show, she was the finest
grey, and her fineness was in the top ratings of the entire show—regardless
of color, and comparable to many white entries.
personality is warm and likeable. She is confident when touched by
humans, and stays close to the shed when we are around. She enjoys a
good chin rub, and is always the first to investigate and open shed door
that reveals our baled hay. We're very excited to see Cady continue to
develop this year. Her first breeding is to the nationally
renowned GreyBeard, and we have a beautiful Dark Modern Silver Grey
cria we have named Silver Belle.
You can purchase yarn made from Cady's beautiful blanket!
MADNESS CAMEOROSE WALTZ
~ $5,000 Sales Price ~
ARI # 32652246 ~ DOB:
We're really excited to
have Rose. Her sire is Snowmass Matrix Madness, and her dam is our own
Cameo. This is our great PR Alpaca on the ranch. Extremely
friendly and the first one to greet us every evening with a willing chin,
she exhibits not only great spirit but great genetic traits from her
Snowmass Sire—Matrix Madness: correct confirmation & bite, buttery
fineness, a high amplitude crimp, and great size for her age. That
winning personality is from her dam, our own Cameo. She
ribboned in both shows this fall in which she was shown, both times in 3rd
AUBREY OAKS' TOTAL ECLIPSE
ARI # 32410136 ~ DOB:
Eclipse is wonderfully sweet and gentle. He is the most
approachable male Alpaca in our herd. His color is True Black with a
fleece that is very fine with good density and excellent coverage. He
has a solid full size frame, and his very straight top line and good bone
structure are obvious traits from his sire—Snowmasss Lunar Challenger. His
dam is our own Pluro's Premier Concerto who herself won a blue ribbon at
TxOLAN for her fleece. His maternal grandsire is our own Snowmass
Nova's Pluro. Peruvian Hemingway G171 is in his paternal line.
He will make a wonderful acquisition for some lucky owner.
