Each of Talon's first offspring took either a first place,Blue Ribbons and/or a Color Championship, to include, September, 2010 at the Big E Alpaca Show. Island Alpaca 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 Island Alpaca Purl, another offspring from 2009, took a blue, first place win, in her class of grey yearlings.
Kudo's to Talon-with award-winning fiber that is just outstanding - which we know now, he passes along to his off spring! It's incredibly
dense, with amazing character and high-frequency, tight, even crimp (from skin to his tips), fineness and luster! Add to that an absolutely
even in color, spot-free blanket. Talon is the picture-perfect grey. Watch for more of his cria, arriving in 2012.
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 yearlings included. Talon was the oldest with the exception of one competitor. Impressive for 5 years of age! Show results found here.
Amanda VandenBosch judging, gave him a 19 out of a 20 point score for fineness and handle, commenting "good eveness 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
close he had to start to look for things in order to place them.
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!
has one of the nicest personalities of an adult male alpaca. He's a true public relations Champ, very social with the staff, and many of our visitors.
NEWS! Talon wins first for his fleece at the Green Mountain Fall Spectacular
of 2012! Judge commented, "Exhibiting good fineness, handle and
are currently continuing to offer a low introductory breeding fee. Meet this future "Get-of-Sire Winner"!
