Snow Diamond Chile Amor 1 is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime kind of alpaca! We saw her at Snow Diamond in the summer of 2019 and I could never get her out of my mind. She went on to win her first Judge's Choice win at the American Alpaca Showcase that fall and I wasn't a bit surprised. But imagine my surprise when she showed up in my barn as an early Christmas present from my husband that December! Best Christmas present ever!
We took Chile to the combined Txolan shows where she placed 2nd and Reserve in both shows under Red Granites Cinnamon by Val D L'sere who ended up taking Judge's Choice Female in both shows. After doing so well, we couldn't NOT take her to Nationals. We were thrilled and more than a little shocked when Chile ended up winning the coveted Supreme Dark Huacaya Female at Nationals! What an honor it was, and still is.
Comments from Judge Wade Gease following her Supreme Dark win were:
"Wow! She is a powerhouse of consistent, fine, uniformity and density. Her structure just bounces off with beaming light. She is SUPER fine and DENSE! And just look at that teddy bear look. She's gorgeous!"
Chile is being bred to the incomparable Snowmass Matrix at Irish Meadows for her maiden breeding in 2020.
