Glenhope Chester is a well framed male with a very soft feel to his fleece. His sire, Marriglen Delta is a son of Accoyo Challenger that has made a significant impact with his progeny. His dam has an excellent frame which she has passed on to Chester. He has skined tested very well showing very high fibre density with no very coarse primary fibres. This is very encouraging for our breeding program as we work to reduce the fibre diameter of the primaries. Chester was an early maturer and is a certified working male with his first progeny on the ground that are showing excellent potential. Chester won Champion fleece in the Adult class (30 - 48 months) at the 2010 New England Alpaca Show.

They were Glen Waverly Alpacas (Betty & Adrian Whitten), Sunline Alpacas (Jeff & Jill Willis), Towarri Alpacas (Stuart & Fiona Marshall) and Glenhope Alpacas (Bronwyn & David Mitchell). Everyone took home some ribbons from the event which attracted 44 fleeces and 136 animals. In the fleece section Glenhope entered 7 fleeces and received 3 Championships, 2 Reserve Championships and the Supreme Champion. Glen Waverly received a Reserve Championship. The judge commented on the weight of the fleeces and the quality of the presentation which is encouraging. In the animal classes Sunline received 2 Championships and a Reserve Champion and Glenhope received a Championship and 2 Reserve Champions.
24/04/13 - Castle Hill Alpaca Show
Castle Hill Show, near Sydney, Australia, on the 9 March was another great show for SRS(R) studs. Walkley Fields (Richard Brennan) and Gunnamatta Alpacas (Sue Maynard and John Hay) had a very succesful day collecting 7 out of 10 Champions, with Walkley Fields taking out Supreme Huacaya Alpaca and Sire's progeny.
Judge Joanne Ham commented on the "super softness" of the animals.
