Never in our wildest dreams would we have predicted how well we would have done at the Australian Alpaca Assn National Show and Sale recently held in Bendigo Victoria.
We originally entered 8 animal and brought home 2. Not only did all of our Rosedeane Sayonara young males do well in the show ring but all were sold at the show. Also our nominated auction animal, Futura Calamity Jane was entered in the show and she won Champion Senior Female and best White Female of Show. This enhanced her selling price and was sold at auction for $35,000 AUD and now resides in New South Wales.
Our 3 junior white males were placed First, Second and Third in there class of 25 animals. This is an extremely rare event at National Show level.
Our junior brown female entered, Futura Perfect Wish (Humdinger’s first progeny – now located in New Zealand) was placed first in a class of 24 animals and ultimately won best Brown Female of Show.
Our daughter Alison, who assisted us at the show was run off her feet promoting and selling our juniors.
