Sire: Snowmass Uncontended Royalty
Dam: EP Cambridge Kensington Gardens
We are now releasing Jonah for sale. He is in his prime and really looks the part in the paddock. His cria have been very true-to-type and have been very good. Both Gilt Edge Alpacas and alpacasRstyle used him extensively in his first two years at both our farms and we now need to use a different white male across his daughters. Rather than wait until Jonah begins to look middle-aged we have decided to offer him for sale whilst still in his prime.
His daughters, Gilt Edge Marykins won Champion Light Fawn Female Huacaya at the North Island Colourbration show 2015, Gilt Edge Esprit ET won Champion White Female at the same show. Esprit ET also won Champion Junior Female at the Royal Auckland Easter Show a couple of weeks previously. Jonah’s 2015 cria are being born now and we are extremely happy with boys and girls alike.
Silverstream Jonah is one those very striking males that command your attention. He grows a very dense, lustrous fleece with excellent length to the staple. Jonah’s sire was imported from the famous Snowmass ranch in the USA. Snowmass genetics are held in high regard throughout the world and through Jonah, we are fortunate to have access to these very rare bloodlines.
The dam, EPC Kensington Gardens was imported from the well-known Cambridge Stud in South Australia. Kensington Gardens was exported to Europe several years ago so her only other cria produced here in New Zealand was Silverstream indus. Indus won Junior Champion Male at the 2009 National Alpaca Expo and was sold as a wild card entry in the auction.
Jonah has been very successful in the show ring. From ten show appearances he has been placed:
1st – five times
2nd – twice
3rd – once
5th – once
Reserve Champion – once
Champion – twice
At the NZ Royal at Waikato in 2010 he was Intermediate Male Champion and he repeated this at the 2010 Manawatu Show. He was also placed third in a very large class at the 2010 National Alpaca Expo.
Once he reached maturity Jonah has won Supreme Champion Huacaya at the Manawatu show, Supreme Champion at Hawera A,P & I show as well as Supreme Champion at the Levin Show and he was placed 4th nationally in 2013 AANZ national show for adult males.
