1st Place for Challenger

Here is the official show picture of our boy, OHVNA The Challenger, who received a 1st place at the Best of the US Show.

Challenger is what we hoped and dreamed to create when we planned that breeding. We bred our female, Hana's Victoria, to our male, ARF Our Peruvian Tucker. Victoria was the first alpaca we purchased, and has become a farm favorite. She has the typie look that everyone notices, but she also has fine yet dense fiber. The only thing she lacks is crimp (a trait known from her sire). Tucker is a male we aquired a couple years ago because he is a rare light silver grey. Tucker is also dense, but not as fine. Our hope was to combine Victoria's fineness with Tucker's crimp and color. Challenger was the exact result we were praying for. We couldn't be more thrilled with him!

This is the first cria from our male, Tucker. Now that we see what Tucker can produce, we are even more excited to use him in the future.
