Winter Storm was the first cria born at our farm in the north San Francisco Bay area, after many years of agisting with other breeders. He a MOOSE--and the nickname stuck. Now, Winter Storm turned out to be normal in size, but his dam is a great mom and got him off to a vigorous start, so we still call him "the Moose".
But what we have seen develop is a fantastically fine and lustrous fleece with well defined flat locks. Of all the alpacas on our farm--suri and huacaya, juvies and adults, Winter Storm boasts one of the finest fleeces--sampled at 18 months of age!! Now that he has had several EPD tests done, he has placed in the top 1% for AFD for 3 years in a row!! This is not really surprising since his dam is a daughter of the fantastic Snowmass Silken Gold, known for fineness and luster. At the West Coast Alpaca Show, Winter Storm took the blue ribbon in Walking Fleece, beating the male who would eventually take the Top Suri award for the show! And his sire, Curandero, is a son of AOBA Champion Saber's Red Storm Rising. Curandero has numerous championships to his name and gives Winter Storm his elegant, fluid conformation and style. His dam, Winter Silk, is our farm greeter for visitors and passes on to him her strong bone, balanced frame with level top line, fine fleece, as well as even more luster!
Winter Storm is white, but both Curandero and Silk's sire are fawn, so he may well pass color.

Winter Storm would do well in your breeding program to bring in extreme fineness and luster. Or, he would be a fantastic addition to a herd for a fiber artist, just to have access to his luscious fine and lustrous locks.
