Heritage: Full Chilean Color: Medium Silver Grey
Each of Talon's first offspring took either a first place, Blue Ribbon and/or a Color Championship, to include September, 2010 at the Big E Alpaca Show. Lunette, (Seven alpaca in her class) took a
first-place blue ribbon, and even more outstanding, a color champion
banner for all browns with over twenty alpaca in total. Once again,
Lunette took the blue in the "Bred and Owned" class, showing in a class
of fifteen -up against the best of the best, including
white blue ribbon winners! Very, very impressive for a brown! Talon's Purl, another offspring from 2009, took a blue, first place win, in her class of grey yearlings.
to Talon-with award-winning fiber that is just outstanding - which we
know now, he passes along to his offspring! It's incredibly
dense, with amazing character and high-frequency, tight, even crimp

Talon, at the Alpaca Festival of Oregon, 2010, took the Reserve Color Championship for his fleece, with 16 alpaca in the competition, ten juvi's and

Amanda VandenBosch judging, gave him a 19 out of a 20 point score for fineness and handle, commenting "good evenness on fleece!" An amazing win = amazing fleece = amazing herd sire!
At another competition, Judge
Wade Gease placed him third and added that the three top placing males
all were quite even (First place winner was A.L Paca's Revolution) and
that he actually preferred Talon's fleece. Talon placed third due to
his adult teeth coming in, and Judge Gease said that with males so

Judge after judge comment on his build,
and very even crimpy fleece! With Colorado genetics, and 12 grey's in
his ARI, he's will likely
add some great quality to your grey or
colored breeding program!
Talon won first for his fleece at the Green Mountain Fall Spectacular
