Coup has matured into a studly male.  His fleece is fine with a beautiful crimp.  He fleece also exhibits significant structure complimented with good density.  He was born a whopping 22+ pounds so he has the genes for size.  Being born sideways and backwards in the middle of June in Texas put him in a hard spot.  While he has not grown up to the size of his successful older siblings, we are sure that he can deliver those genes, so we have  utilized him in our breeding program in the fall of 2016.

His fleece brought a BLUE ribbon in the 2016 TXOLAN Alpaca Spectacular Handcrafter’s Spin-Off. He came in third in the 2015 TxOLAN Alpaca Spectacular Full Fleece Huacaya White Male Two-Year-Old Halter competition. He picked up 3 more Blue Ribbons at the 2017 TXOLAN Alpaca Spectacular—including “TxOLAN Alpaca Spectacular – Handcrafter’s Spin-Off – Huacaya White – Highest Scoring Fleece in Color Group.”

His sire is the incomparable SNOWMASS TOUCHE’, the possessor of multiple Champions and Blues. His Dam is SNOWMASS PRECIOUS HEART. Coop’s dam is the 7/8ths sister to Snowmass Matrix himself who is famed as much for his Get of Sire titles and amazing offspring as he is for his $680,000 record setting sales price. His genetics include a list of Who’s Who of alpacas that have had major impact in both American and world-wide alpaca programs. Genetics or not, he can stand on his own merits however and is growing into an exceptional herdsire. His name literally translated from French means “Bolt of Lightning.”  But it is figuratively accepted to mean “Love At First Sight!”  We totally agree!

We are expecting that his offspring will get his strong bone structure, excellent topline and superb confirmation.  The typey head and great fleece coverage are wonderful traits as well.  On top of this, he has a fine personality and is very approachable
