2013 Alcazar Maryanne does well at New England Alpaca Show. Alcazar Maryanne S8 was recently shown at the New England Alpaca Show and we were very pleased when she not only was awarded first in the intermediate light fawn class but went on to gain reserve champion intermediate female, Maryanne was shown in her second fleece. The champion intermediate award for this class went to Maryanne's half sister, Amethyst, who is part of our Shangrilah herd. Both Maryanne and Amethyst are sired by Shangrilah owned Cedar House Excalibar 2. As much as we like Maryanne, she does not meet the strict Alcazar criteria of white animals, so we have offered her for sale, see photos and more info about Maryanne on our sales page.
2012 Birthing in Southern NSWThe final cria of the 2012 season have now been born at Birrong, in Southern NSW, whilst at Shangrilah, in Northern NSW, births are about to begin. We have been very pleased indeed with this year's group of cria, with a couple of exceptional youngsters sired by Mister Macusani - we can't wait to see how they develop as they grow older, but at a young age they have superb grease, lustre and density.
Winter 2012 New England Alpaca Show We were very pleased indeed to start this winter with another Alcazar animal being awarded at show. This time it was the New England Alpaca Show, where Alcazar Diva S16 took out the Supreme Suri fleece award. Diva is an elegant classy maiden with great locking and lustre. She is sired by Cedar House Moonflute and her dam is Alcazar Seraphina S10. We excitedley await her frist cria now, she has been mated to Surilana Donaldo.
Spring 2011 and Autumn 2012 birthing: We have been very pleased with the quality of our latest cria - including the early progeny of Surilana Mister Macusani ET. With the oldest of these cria soon ready for weaning we will be looking forward to the 2012 show season, in both Southern and Northern NSW.
Surilana Mister Macusani ET: We are delighted to announce the arrival of Mister Macusani's first cria born into the Alcazar herd. A female born on 15 March 2011 - see our Gallery page for a photo at 24 hours old.
Boorowa Show 2011: Alcazar Beowulf S24 was awarded Champion Adult Suri by senior judge Lyn Dickson at the Boorowa show in March. With 16 months growth on his second fleece, Beowulf is looking fabulous and, once his show career is over, we are looking forward to starting him on his stud duties.
