Progeny from US males strut their stuff
June 12th, 2012 by Julie

Over the weekend, progeny from the males imported from the US in 2010 certainly made their mark – at two different shows. Trish Robb took a large team of suris to the Goulburn colour Show while Baarrooka went to Alpacafest which had Best of Colour Awards for suri.

Trish was awarded Best Black Female, Best Black Male, Supreme Black Suri, Best Brown Male and Supreme Brown suri (amongst a swag of other ribbons) for progeny from ILR ABF Riptide’s Ultimate Black, ILR Cantano’s Phantom and ILR ABF Fine Threads Kingsford.  Congratulations, Trish, your black suris are certainly up the top of the tree!

Meanwhile, down in Hamilton, the Baarrooka team of 3 progeny of ILR Moon River’s Peruvian Durango and 3 from Ultimate Black saw us receive:

  • Baarrooka Ultimate Princess – second Junior Black
  • Baarrooka Durango’s Acclaim – 1st Light Fawn Intermediate; Champion Intermediate, Best Light Fawn Female and Premier Light Fawn
  • Baarrooka Durango’s Acclaim – 1st Medium/Dark Fawn, Reserve Champion Intermediate, Best Medium/Dark Fawn Female
  • Baarrooka Durango’s Roam – 1st Light Fawn Intermediate; Best Light Fawn Male
  • Baarrooka Ultimate Groove – second Intermediate Medium/Dark Fawn
  • Baarrooka Ultimate Granite – 1st Intermediate Grey; Best Grey Male; Premier Grey

We are so happy with the results we are getting from these new boys – what a difference they are making to coloured suri breeding in Australia!  I wonder if we should go back for some more…..

Victorian Colourbration 2010
August 30th, 2010 by Julie

Well Colourbration is over for another year and what a great event it was yet again.  And how exhausting! Being on the organising committee, a major sponsor and showing takes its toll, but it is worth it. In my mind it is the best alpaca show in Australia and certainly the most enjoyable.

Baarrooka came away with a nice swag of ribbons; every animal except one got a ribbon – 5 firsts, 3 seconds and one third.  We were awarded 3 Reserve Champions (Med/Dark Fawn Male and  Brown Male and Female) and also 3 Supremes (Light Fawn, Med/Dark Fawn and Brown) with our fleeces.

2009 Colourbration Show
September 4th, 2009 by Julie

The Colourbration Show was huge this year – about 450 animals (over 150 suris). The number of coloured suris was amazing and would represent the strongest competition anywhere in Australia – even better that the National IMO. This show is becoming the MUST NOT MISS event for coloured breeders. Baarrooka, as a member of the Strathbogie Ranges Suri Breeders, was a major sponsor for the show, We had a great display area and had many visitors to our red and purple ‘lounge’ where we had the best view of the show ring.

Baarrooka animals did well with3rd in Junior Fawn Female, 2nd in Adult Fawn Male and 2nd in Junior Brown Female. Baarrooka Breeze was awarded 3rd Junior Black female in a huge class and 1st Junior Brown Male. A Baarrooka-bred male, now owned by Jess Harris of Eldaraigne was awarded 1st in the Senior Fawn Male class and a Rockefeller cria, owned by Esterlina was awarded 1st Junior Fawn Male.

In the fleece classes, Baarrooka was awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd in the 6-18 m White class, 1st and 2nd in the 18-30 m White class and Supreme White Fleece with Baarrooka Mr Mister’s fleece; 2nd in each of the 6-18 m, 18-30 m and 30+ m Fawn Classes; and 1st in the 6-18 m Brown class and Supreme Brown Fleece with Baarrooka Lethal Weapon’s fleece.

Supreme Brown Suri at VIC Colourbation 2008
September 15th, 2008 by Julie

Baarrooka Lethal Weapon has taken out Supreme Brown Suri at the Colourbation Spring Carnival 2008. This young male has spectacular greasy, lustrous and locky fleece. He has taken more than one judge by surprise on opening up his fleece. This is one that you have to put your hands on to appreciate such a magnificent fleece – and in a rich dark colour.

Sired by Surilana Omar (SW), his dam is Baarrooka Queen Juliana (SLB), an Arequipa King daughter of Baarrooka Queen Wilhelmina, so there are some special genetics there, with lots of colour.
