2022 Futurity Overview

Yet another amazing prestigious Futurity Show & Sale was held this year, the competition being even tougher than last — but the RGR animals held there own and won some exciting purple, blue, red, and white ribbons. Our show team this year at the Futurity was made up of a few 2-year-olds creeping up on there third birthday (thankfully making the cut for there final Futurity show appearance), quite a few yearlings and some wobbly juveniles even made the cut!

We started off the Futurity weekend strong with selling our auction lot, Red Granites Brooklyn By Val D Lsere to our good friends at Eagle Eye Farm! Brooklyn joined her paternal-sister Red Granites Plié By Val D Lsere and distant relative Red Granites Alyeska at EEF, adding to there already amazing lineup of alpacas. She will be spending the summer with us to get bred to Estates Passionate Fever then she will head to her forever home.

After that late night auction we then went into the actual show, and oh boy was it a fun show weekend! The excitement of Red Granites Alydar By Val D Lsere taking home the Grey Male Color Champion banner as a 2-year-old was probably the most exciting win we have had yet — very few GRAY alpacas have won the Futurity Gray Color Champion banner for two-years in a row, so we were pretty happy! In the female ring, Red Granites Sizlin Dosita (an exciting True Black Sizzy daughter) took home top honors as the Black Female Reserve Color Champion winner being pulled from right behind the Color Champion winner and RGR Tell The World By Val D Lsere took home the Fawn Female Reserve Color Champion banner, also being pulled from right behind the Color Champion winner.

But onto the exciting part, just a few days ago we got the exciting news of overall Herdsires of the Year and who won them. We are proud to say that Red Granites Val D Lsere won the 2022 Futurity Herdsire of the Year Dark-Colored Offspring trophy for the SECOND year in a row! We are incredibly happy and excited to see how his future will progress!
