Animals bred at our farm continue to excel in the show ring, indicating that we are achieving our breeding objectives and receiving external recognition for our outstanding animals and validation of our breeding program.

We capped off a good year in the show ring with an amazing showing at the 2005 Grand National. The last two classes of the show featured three offspring from the same stud in the Get of Sire class, and two offspring from the same female in the Produce of Dam class.  Bolivian Asombroso's Get of Sire was awarded first place at the 2005 Grand National Show (B. Asombroso is shown in the picture to the right) and Gold Glitter earned the first place award for Produce of Dam

 In both classes the animals are evaluated as a set, that is, how well do they match each other and exhibit desirable characteristics that a sire or dam should pass on to their offspring.  The judge would evaluate the conformation of the llamas including their proportions, straight legs and backline, balance, size and movement, and then determine how well matched the animals are to each other.

Bolivian Asombroso's Get is shown to the right in a picture taken at the Rogue River Gold Show in May 2004.  From left to right, the llamas in the picture are Gold Sparkle, Hi Hopes and Its Destini.  We love the picture (thanks Dream Riders!), but the llamas have grown up a little bit since this was taken.  To give you a better idea how they look today, we have included three more recent pictures below.  

Hi Hopes (middle spot in the Get picture) is shown below and to the left.  Hope showed most of 2005 as a yearling, but had her birthday in September and competed in the 2 year old class at the National Show.  Hope had a good year in the show ring including being selected as the Best of Show halter animal at the Central Oregon Llama Association Festival.  Hope's mother is Magnifique, our three-time Top Five winner in the Female Heavy Wool division at the National Show from 2000 to 2002.

Gold Sparkle (on the left in the Get picture) is shown to the right.  Sparkle's birthday is also in September, so she competed most of 2005 in the 2 year old class and was in the adult class at the National Show.  In addition to being part of the "team" for both Get and Produce, Sparkle was named the Grand Champion Heavy Wool Female for the 2005 Grand National Show! We have not had animals get 1st place in halter at the National Show until this year and then Sparkle was not content to stop with a just a first place ribbon! Sparkle is a Gold Glitter daughter born in 2002. 

Gold Glitter x Bolivian Asombroso is one of our favorite matings - we named the 2003 "model" from this combination Its Destini and she is shown in the picture below to the right and is also on the right in the Get picture.  2005 was a good year for Destini in the show ring; she was named Reserve Champion Heavy Wool Female twice and Grand Champion once.

The two Gold Glitter offspring that we have been showing as our Produce of Dam are Gold Sparkle (above and right) and Its Destini (right).
