Description

Update: Sadly, Billabong recently passed, suddenly and unexpectedly. He was an incredible herdsire and we are very grateful for the offspring that we have

****************************************************************

Wow! This guy is amazing and to top that off, he has produced many amazing cria! His offspring are taking the Pacific Northwest by storm after spending a couple of years there, and co-owners, Vickie and Ron Sutton of Wooley Beast Alpacas in Wyoming, are offering him at stud for the midwest and producing amazing cria there. And now Billabong joins us in California to work his magic here!

2014 HISTOGRAM AT 12 YEARS OLD! AFD 24.1; SD 4.2; CV 17.8%!

This is what the Suttons say about him:

"Here is a real head-turner! Billabong has shown in Multi and Grey classes with impressive results. If you are looking to add color to your program, along with amazing coverage, typey conformation, and a perfect head, this is the one! His pedigree is a virtual list of who's who, and Billabong exemplifies the results of quality breedings, as do his offspring! They carry his dense coverage, staple length and architecture, as well as strong bone. It shows in their impressive awards in the ring.
Also important is his very gentle nature and friendly personality. Billabong is easy to handle, and is a joy to own."

Take advantage now to enhance your breeding program and we will see you in the show ring!

Billabong's cria have hit the ground with a bang, with incredible fleece, including a fleece champ! Billabong has thrown several appy cria, with the last three white females Billabong was bred to having appy cria!

Billabong comes from star quality genetics. His grand-dam is Medium Rose Grey Hannahruh, who has consistently produced award winning cria - including the well known Painted Sky Apres Vous and champion Grey, Aussie Rockford.

Billabong's former owners had this to say about him:

"Billabong won 1st Place and Reserve Color Champion (at just 6mos+2days of age) in a multi class in his first show, the 2004 GWAS. Maggie Krieger put him into a Rose Grey class at the 2004 AOBA Nationals and awarded him a 1st Place there. At the 2005 GWAS he landed in multi again where Dr.Julio Sumar placed him 1st yet again. Billabong also helped us win a 4th Place in Breeder's Best Three and 3rd Place in Produce of Dam at GWAS in '05.

While the judges can't seem to agree on what color Billabong actually is they do all agree on his quality.
With a pedigree like his it's no surprise. He's a grandson of both Dom Lucillio (who sold at auction in 2004 for a then record price) and Peruvian Presidio (a Caligula son and 2nd Place 2004 AOBA Get of Sire). The important touch of rich color and robust nature come through his beautiful, grey, Chilean grandmother."
