What a Nationals!
October 15th, 2013 by Julie

Baarrooka is thrilled to announce that Baarrooka Durango’s Echo was awarded Supreme Suri at the 2013 National Show in Bendigo. Whilst we have been awarded broad ribbons at each Show we have attended since 2004, this is our first Supreme. The entire team exceeded our expectations but illustrated the impact the 6 coloured males we imported from USA in 2010 have had on our breeding.


Well, the wash-up of the 2013 Australian National Show & Sale:
14 animals entered – 12 firsts, 1 second, 1 Highly Commended,
5 Fleeces entered – 3 firsts, 1 second, 1 third.

Junior Female Champion, Intermediate Female Champion, Intermediate Male Champion and Reserve Champion, Senior Female Champion, Best Fancy, Supreme Champion, Best White Female, Best Light Fawn Male and Overall, Best Medium/Dark Fawn Female, Male and Overall, , Best Brown Male and Overall and Best Black Male and Overall. Also 2nd Sires Progeny for Durango.

The show team are kicking back at home – rolling in the rubbish and enjoying the sun.  The older ones will all be shorn, so thought I’d get a few last snaps.

Durango Girls at the National
November 3rd, 2012 by Julie

A photo of the 3 Adult Durango girls. From L to R, Magic, Acclaim and Rosalie. Rosalie was awarded Best Fawn Female and her full brother Best Brown Male. Both are gorgeous.  The two other girls have suffered from tender fleece/rain scald and, although they still look pretty nice were not quite National Show condition, with a lot of broken fleece.


National Show 2012
November 2nd, 2012 by Julie

Well, I left my show catalogue in the Japanese Restaurant, so can only report on what I remember until the results go up on the AAA website.  And, it was such a rush from one end to the other, that I really don’t know how all of the team went.

Firstly, I have to congratulate Surilana on the ‘clean sweep’ of the age Championships (where was the black Senior female????). They are setting the suri Standard that we are all aspiring to.

Here are ‘the main’ results – the ones with photos, at least – more later.

Baarrooka Ultimate Groove - Reserve Champion Intermediate Male

Baarrooka Wild Card - Reserve Champion Senior Male

Baarrooka Breeze Carbon Copy - Best Black in Show

Baarrooka Ultimate Granite - Best Grey in Show

And unfortunately only had one fleece to enter – but it returned very happy!  First 6-18 m Brown, Champion 6-18 months (reserve champion was a black – go colours!) and Best Brown.  This is Baarrooka Navigator – the first Chersam D’Angelo cria born and a super-dense, gorgeous lustrous and locky 6-month-old fleece. Yummo
