Kendall Creek Farms wins National Award

AOBA_Cup_1We are proud and honored to report that Kendall Creek Farms was presented with the Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association, Classic Huacaya Cup for 2012.

This award is presented to the farm that scores the most points based on halter show results of a maximum of three alpacas at the annual National Alpaca Show.

We feel this small exhibitor category  is very important as it represents the fact that many of the larger alpaca farms across the country show a dozen or more alpaca as a representation of the hundreds, or even thousands, they may have on their farm.  In the case of Kendall Creek Farms, we may have only 10 cria a year and show half of them.  Statistically speaking, their odds of hitting a “home run” are better with that many “at bats”.

In this instance, we took two of our five 2012 show string alpacas to nationals, and won two first place awards and a color championship.  This is a testimony to our breeding program (aka Lori Works’ decision making) and helps to solidify our small farms’ place in the competitive alpaca community.  Congratulation to Isla Saona and Optimus Prime for representing our farm so well.

 

Success at 2013 PAOBA Breeders Showcase

PAOBA 2013 was another good show for Kendall Creek Farms

PAOBA-2013-bannersWe limited our show string due to stress poop in the boy pasture from MAPACA, but the girls represented the farm well.  Our last two purchases, Riley and Red Slip both took second place in very large classes.  One losing the eventual Champion and the other to the Reserve Champion in their color classes.  Always a bride’s maid I guess.  Isla Saona  took her normal position at the top of the class in the yearling brown females and then on to win her 4th Color Championship.  Isla’s next stop is a date with Crystal Spartan later this summer.  Her halter show days may be over, but her fleece is certain to be out there this year, and her cria are destine to take the alpaca community to the next level.
