Congrats to Snow Diamond Alpacas on this spectacular purchase, though we have heard of him now being exported to Germany! This will be the first Matrix Rose line that enters germany if thats the case! Congrats to all breeders!

Red Granites MR Ben Franklin is one of our most unique genetically blended and exciting Matrix Rose sons that we have offered in auction.

Red Granites MR Ben Franklin is a supernal, multi-champion brown stud. His evolution descends from a remarkable lineage of momentous sires and peruvian dams. Most proximate is his own sire, Snowmass Matrix Rose, who is also a multi-champion brown stud standing at Red Granite Ranch. He is sired by multi-champion Snowmass Matrix, who is sired by multi-champion Snowmass Quechua.

This is proven brown and colored genetics at its paramount. Combining a direct Full Peruvian daughter of PPeruvian Camilio with Matrix Rose lineage has been one of our best get genetic fision's, and it comes to show.

Over his show career he was awarded 13 Championship banners and 1 Grand Champion award.

We will never be able to get a full sibling to this male as we lost his mother early last year, but his maternal brother is on taking on the role of carrying on these genetics at RGR, Red Granites Badger By Val D Lsere.

We are very confident when we say that MR Ben Franklin could compete with his brothers, Snowmass MR Sizlin Rose's production with elite fleece crias if he is bred correctly.

Julie Skinner, Snowmass Alpacas: "Truly Awesome stud male! Congratulations to you Don & Sharon as well as to Mark & Sharon Milligan... Red Granite Alpacas"
