Stud Booklet 0809

Export champions

Nic and Linda keep up-to-date with the latest in alpaca information, by reading widely, being a member of the New Zealand, Australian, British and American alpaca associations, and attending conferences worldwide.

Nic spoke at the International Alpaca Congress in Spain in June 2010. We had a trade stand at the World Alpaca Conference in England 2012.

Our studs are international champions and are producing champions. Some of these studs have been exported and many of their progeny are doing well in show rings in UK and Europe.

  We are proud that in New Zealand  we are breeding champion alpacas and we export top quality alpacas around the world.

We use the best genetic lines, through males proven in the show-rings of USA and Australia, and proven through magnificent offspring already on the ground in these same countries.

In New Zealand our alpacas are champions - and the studs are producing champions.

Now our quality stock are taking championships in UK and Europe. Ask about alpacas available for export.

 
  We encourage you to send us photos of your champions from our genetics. Here are the latest show pictures we have from overseas.
  Hei Tiki, a daughter of Hemiccoyo Matrix, a male we bred and exported, took Grand Champion female at the show in Austria 2015. Matrix was a champion in himself (see further down this page).

Congratulations to Tabertal Alpacas of Germany. They also took Grand Champion Male
and Best of Show with Gizmo, whose parents are also from New Zealand.

 

 

World of Alpacas Show in Buchloe Bavaria November 2014. Pictured are:

A daughter of Aquaviva Claudius (son of Brutus) was best female.

Gizmo (also from NZ alpaca parents) won "Best of show“

 

   Idefix (son of Hemiccoyo Matrix, who we bred and exported) won Color Champion
 (white, pictured below). Gizmo is next in line, and the gray is sired by Greenstone Mars, (himself sired by
Titus , a champion son of Brutus).

 

 

A cria sired by Titus, a champion son of Brutus, took fawn champion at Westerlee Show 22 April 2012 in the Netherlands.

 

   

Hapert Show, Netherlands, 24-25 March 2012 had 244 entries.

Aquaviva Claudius was Supreme Champion, Champion Huacaya and Fawn Champion at Hapert Show 2012. Just look at the size of that cup!

Claudius is the full brother to our Titus, first born from Aroma and our ILR Alpine Fiber's Brutus.

Marcus, another full brother, has also done well at shows, and features in our championship photos that follow.

Hapert Show, Netherlands, 24-25 March 2012

Top-Line Commander Magic was Reserve Champion white, in a show that had 90 whites of the 244 entries.

Marcus and Claudius have other full brothers - Titus is a many times champion in New Zealand. He is pictured on the stud booklet featured above. We imported his dam from Australia, and have mated her to Brutus many times, producing championship alpacas every time.
