National Alpaca Expo 2009
Silverstream Deja Vu the beaten finalist at the 2008 National Alpaca Expo has turned the tables and won the Supreme Champion Huacaya title at he 2009 National Alpaca Expo in Feilding.
In so doing, Silverstream have now won three consecutive Supreme Champion Huacaya titles
in 2007, 2008 and 2009.
Deja Vu's historic win marks the first time that a female has ever won the National title and most remarkably as a five year old. It is also the first time that a brother and sister have won this prestigious title - Silverstream Faberge having won it in 2008.
Silverstream won five age group championships and two reserve age group championships in the breed and three age group and four reserve age group championships in the fleece competition.
Three of the age group champions were sired by ILR Alpine Fiber's Brutus, a son of Peruvian Hemingway. Progeny from Cambridge Storm Trooper and Silverstream Ensenada also performed with distinction.
We look forward to the spring show season and some wonderful competition from our fellow breeders and friends.
