Celeste is a sweet girl with an amazing fleece that is organized and bright, Bright, BRIGHT! At 9 years old, she is in the top 1% EPDs in 6 categories!

Celeste’s pedigree is oh, so solid. She is the daughter of Snowmass Elite Legend— 5X Futurity Herdsire of the Year and 3X Reserve Futurity Herdsire of the Year.

Snowmass Alpacas has proudly said that Snowmass Elite Legend is the most distinguished White Huacaya Stud standing in the WORLD. Rare Gem Alpacas is proud to have added such a lovely Elite Legend daughter to the foundation herd.

In 2020, Celeste threw a lovely appaloosa male. His fleece shows an advanced architecture rarely found in appaloosa and harlequin alpacas. Celeste has now been bred to appaloosa harlequin, Apache Gentleman, for a Spring 2022 offspring. Apache is currently throwing at a 95% expression rate for appaloosa and harlequin... even when bred to solid dams with NO appaloosa / harlequins in their pedigrees.

UPDATE: June 2021.... fiber testing results just received and updated. Celeste is still rockin' the stats at 10 years of age! AFD 18.5, SD 3.4, %>30=0.9%, CF 99.1%
