This girl was an extraordinarily nice medium silver grey. She had nice density and set herself above with great luster! Her color referred to as shiny sterling or platinum by those that saw her. Even though her tips are white, she produced a beautiful medium silver grey yarn.

Victoria's sire, Platinum Marquis was an astounding grey producer. Her dam also has some nice genetics to her name - Bet on Black by Prince Greystone.

We had acquired her just before spring show season and after showing her at the California Classic, we decided not to transport her for anymore shows that year and let her do a little more growing. Needless to say she grew up very nicely and I soon was referring to her as Va Va Voom, Victoria.

We had her fleece processed into yarn and it truly turned out amazing! Silky and slick with that cool handle and shiny, the kind that does a suri owner proud regardless of color. Admittedly, I expected her histogram to be nicer, but being on the road and considering issues with changing hay sources that year, we will go by what we see and feel in person.

She took a first at the California Classic and Great Western. Then again At CABA in Oregon. Top level shows & competition --Atta girl! Way to finish off your show career.

Her first cria by GLR Armani, an absolute knock out! I always thought if I had to pick owning only one alpaca, Victoria would likely be it. Then thankfully, along came her daughter - aka Victory Dance! A repeat breed didn't take so we stepped out and chose a phenomenal grey guy owned by Alfaro Family Farms - SD Silver stone's Bluestreak Rocket. He has beautiful conformation and fleece and they gave us another beautiful grey girl!

Last season we chose a sire of amazing density WI The Admiral. Tragically we lost Victoria and her beautiful dark grey baby in late gestation, due to severe peritonitis. We thank Victoria for gracing us with her presence and the two beautiful daughters she has left here on earth with us. May her and that beautiful baby rest in peace and green pastures.
