Roulette was worth the gamble and gave birth to a stunning grey male we called Urcuchillay Smokin’ Ace to follow the gambling theme. He has sired many offspring, all of them coloureds or near-perfect greys, many of whom have done very well on the show circuit and some who are now studs themselves. He is currently on a “working holiday” in Northern Ireland at the amazing Ballymac Alpacas spreading his unique genetics around the UK.
We caught up with Nic and Linda at a show here in the UK when we first arrived and whilst flicking through their auction catalogue Hemiccoyo Matrix 2 caught our eye. Needless to say he was also put on a plane that very year and has now formed an integral part of our breeding programme, doing well on the show ring himself and producing many champion progeny, even taking the Sires Progeny Championship at the Bath & West Show in 2017.
Due to COVID we have not shown since 2019, however in the years we were showing we won many rosettes and sashes, with the crème de la crème being us winning the 2020 British Alpaca National Fleece Show, Champion of Champions. We are passionate about our animals and believe the genetics we started our herd with have been the secret to our success.
