2021 Futurity is in the Books!

We are on our way home from the 2021 Futurity Show & Sale. It took last night to settle in to how well we actually did at the show. The excitment of Red Granites Alydar By Val D Lsere taking the Judges' Choice award as a gray male was a bit of a suprise for Marc and I, but nothing less we are extremely happy and proud to he won that prestigious 'Judges' Choice' award and became the first AOA Registered Grey alpaca to win the Futurity Judges' Choice! All of the other Val D Lsere progeny did extremely well: Casper took home the White Male Color Championship, Sassafras took White Female Reserve Color Championship, and a bunch of first, seconds, and thirds were won by the other half of the 'Val crew'.

The Sales half of the Futurity was equally as impressive as the show itself, as per usual. A True Black Val D Lsere daughter was offered by Odins Fall Alpacas and was the highest selling alpacas that night! We offered two animals at this years Futurity Sale; a full-brother to Val D Lsere (Verbier) and one of Val D Lsere's daughters from our 2019 crop (Clare). Robert Sash of Tiskilwa Farms ended up purchasing Red Granites Clare By Val D Lsere while Dale and Stephanie of St. Peter's, MO purchased Red Granites Verbier.

It was wonderful seeing everyone again. The competition was tough but the atmosphere friendly and fun. Thank you Teresa and Tm Vincent for yet another wonderful event. :)
