Nov 2013 - Elysion Jupiter now available for LIMITED MATINGS only
We have decided to now limit the amount of outside matings available to Elysion Jupiter as he has a very full commitment to our own herd. We have a number of Jupiter sired progeny coming through and females currently mated to him available for sale. Alpha Centauri Kommissar (Sired by Elysion Jupiter) whom was certified earlier this year & Alpha Centauri Comanchee (Sired by Woodland Chase Milagro) whom was certified late 2012 are also available for LIMITED MATINGS only. Just give us a call or send an email to enquire on what is available for sale or available matings.
26 Oct 2013 - Bendigo Ag Show
Since Andrew's acceptance into the AAA Apprentice Judging arena he has been fortunate enough to be the Apprentice Halter & Fleece Judge with Bill Robbins at Strathalbyn Show, Apprentice Fleece Judge with Lyn Dickson at The Charles Ledger Show and Apprentice Halter & Fleece Judge with Peter Kennedy at the recent Bendigo Show. Bronwyn also had the opportunity of being on the microphone and announcing classes. The Bendigo Show was a fantastic country show, very well run with friendly folk. Congratulations to Malakai Alpacas for being awarded Supreme Champion Huacaya as pictured below.

This was our most successful National Show to date and we had a most enjoyable time! There were around 600 alpacas entered in the Show. Angela Preuss & Kylie Martin were the Halter Judges while Karen Caldwell was the Fleece Judge for the event. The Elysion Jupiter sired progeny did well during the event with Elitealpaca Jesmyn awarded a 2nd in her class and Reserve Champion Intermediate Female. Another of Jupiter's progeny Alpha Centauri Ice Cutter was awarded a 1st in his class of Junior Light Fawn Males while Elitealpaca Jalana was awarded a Highly Commended in her highly competitive class of Senior Females. Alpha Centauri Comanchee was awarded a 1st in his halter class and a 1st & Reserve Champion in his fleece class. A fantastic result for Comanchee who was certified last year and we are eagerly awaiting his cria in the future. Elysion Jupiter was awarded a 2nd in the Mature Male halter class with a 2nd & Reserve Champion in his fleece class. He was also awarded a 4th in the Sires Progeny (Jesmyn, Ketchikan & Ice Cutter). Jupiter has now retired from the show ring and will now hand over the baton to his progeny whom we are sure will do him proud. See our Show Results page for our full results.
