We just LOVE Prestige, she's everything we could have asked for! Loosing her to cancer was a HUGE blow, but we are blessed with her offspring. She created rose grey Premier's Absolute, who is known nationally as one of the top grey males in the country and who Julie Skinner praised. He sold for $150,000 at the Futurity. Her list of Champion and Blue ribbon winning offspring is long. She produces fineness and consistency that, like her own, is maintained into maturity. This is the quality Reiling Ranch is striving to replicate across their herd and so pleased that Premier helped us take another step toward achieving our goal.
Her sire is the renowned Don Julio from the first Peruvian import. He was proclaimed at his first show as the closest thing to the perfect alpaca. He put his stamp on fine offspring before leaving the US. Her dam is one of the most cherished at Cas-Cad-Nac producing a champion line for them.
Prestige has a nice head with excellent depth of jaw and maintains a perfect bite at 12 years of age. She has heavy bone that she passes along to her offspring. Her fiber is extremely dense and still shows nice character. Even in her older age, she maintains a fineness comparable to most yearlings. Her offspring have all had good consistent crimp, fineness, and density.
Prestige gave us another girl! Black from Snowmass Porteus. She is incredible! Took a blue in her first show! We believe that the dam contributes at least 50% of the genetics, so we try to maintain the best foundation girls we can.
Next we have a stunning white male from Prestige and Porteus who we can't wait to get in the ring. He is very dense and consistent in crimp. He also has the spectacular "silky" fleece that Snowmass has pioneered. We are so excited to get a "silky" and the fact that he's a boy is a bonus because he will be a huge assest to anyone's breeding program.
Awards Received Her offspring have a very nice collection of Champion banners and ribbons.
