Moonshine is an outstanding young Wool male. The first thing you notice about Moonshine is his conformation, an upstanding stylish male, with fleece coverage from head to toe. But where Moonshine really excels is in his exquisite handle which is consistent across his body. A soft, silky feel, that Jim Watts described as "stunning". The SRS(R) tests confirmed what we already suspected, a high density animal, with uniform and fine primary and secondary fibres, and exceptional fibre growth. His genetics are impressive, with a pedigree that includes Purrumbete Highlander, Purrumbete Inti, Purrumbete Brigantine, Benleigh Bellisimo, Belbourie Trooper, and Jolimont Iva.
Moonshine is well grown and has good bone, as the photograph of him at only 14 months of age shows. Also notice how the fleece crimps to the toes and into the brisket.
Moonshine is available for servicing in an SRS(R) breeding program at a discount to subscribers.

13/06/13 - New England Alpaca Show
Four subscribers were represented at the New England Alpaca show consisting of fleeces and lead animals over the long weekend of the 8th & 9th of June. 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.
