Lord Tennyson wins Get of Sire

Last weekend we attended the Virginia Classic Alpaca Show with two of the farms who purchased their foundation herds from us.  The Virginia Classic is one of our favorite alpaca shows, held in Lexington Virginia each year in conjunction with a llama show.  This year we were very pleased that Peaceful Heart’s Lord Tennyson won Get of Sire.  Tennyson was represented in the ring by Majestic View’s Ellianna (owned by Majestic View Alpacas), Peaceful Heart’s Sir Galahad (owned by It’s a Sweet Life Alpaca Farm) and Peaceful Heart’s Lady Clare (owned by our farm).   The Get of Sire class judges the quality and consistency of the offspring of the sire.  The judge was impressed with the consistency of the fleece style (crimp and lock structure), fineness and density as well as the similarity of conformation in all three crias.  We were very proud of them and Lord Tennyson, and it was a great way to end a good show.

In the Walking Fleece Show, Sir Galahad repeated the performance of his sire in 2008 by winning First and Champion.  Ellianna also did well, placing Third among this very large group of white and light alpacas.

In the show ring, Ellianna was the star, winning First place in a class of 10 beautiful alpacas.  Sir Galahad also did very well in his class of 12.  He placed 5th in this highly competitive class.
