When we were looking for the right sire to bred Malibu, we selected Snowmass Touche'. We are VERY pleased with the results! This combination produced a beautiful white female with superfine fleece that is super bright! She is carrying her Sire's INCREDIBLY DENSE exquisitely FINE and has one of the most advanced fleeces with remarkable consistency from head to toe. She also has an excellent conformation and bite!
Snowmass Touche' is outstanding especially with his combination of Density, Fineness, Brightness, and excellent staple formation.
He is INCREDIBLY DENSE exquisitely FINE and has one of the most advanced fleeces with remarkable consistency from head to toe. And he is a compact and typey male who has correct conformation and bite.
Snowmass Touche is truly one of the finest, densest, elite white fleece studs out of the Snowmass Breeding program. He was designed to go over both Elite white and Color production Dams. He has a very unique genetic line up which includes the superior line of Snowmass Maree Love --the Dam to Snowmass QUECHUA and Snowmass INVINCIBLE, Touche's Sire.
The unique and white Elite element to Touche is his Dam, Snowmass Olay--she is the only Sollocota - Allianza line with her fineness in the Snowmass herd.
In addition to evaluating and validating his conformation and fleece in the show ring, we have done histograms on his fleeces every year. We also did a skin biopsy on him this spring and at 7 years of age, not only has his fleece been amazing in the past, but the current traits he is exhibiting are still remarkable. AND his EPD's demonstrate that he will consistently and reliably pass those traits on to his offspring.
Tierra Prometida’s “Snowmass Touche” was biopsied as a 7 year old white huacaya male with ARI#30408753. His 15X scan demonstrates large fiber clusters very uniform in size and placement. This trait was likely passed from his dam. His density is 76.75 follicles SQ MM of skin and his average S/P ratio based on 25 fiber clusters is 12.0 to 1.
