WF Nutcracker wins Supreme Champion at Winchester A&P Show

Carrying on the legacy of Waratah Flats Fire Cracker, we are now pleased that one of his sons Waratah Flats Nutcracker has won Supreme Champion Huacaya at the Winchester A&P Show on Saturday the 3rd March 2018.

WF Nutcracker has a fine soft handling medium fawn fleece, with loads of style and character. While still only a junior he is showing great potential for the future and we will follow his progress with interest.

WF Fire Cracker off to Europe

Waratah Flats Fire Cracker is this month heading off to “Alpaca Flanders” in Belgium to take up stud breeding duties with his new owners Thijs and Theo. Fire Cracker has been a firm favourite with many alpaca people as he has toured around the shows in the South Island and we shall miss him when he goes. We have been delighted with the offspring he has left with us and look forward to the last half a dozen more cria we are expecting this coming summer.

Fire Cracker wins Supreme Champion at Ellesmere Show

It was another successful day for the Waratah Flats show team at this year’s Ellesmere A&P Show held last Saturday. With 115 alpaca entries at Ellesmere Show this year it continues to be one of the largest spring shows in Canterbury.  So we were delighted when our five year old fawn stud male, Waratah Flats Fire Cracker, continued to shine through and ended the day winning Supreme Champion Huacaya.

Other show results on the day were:

WF Larkspur – 2nd in a strong junior white female class of 15 alpacas

WF Kentucky – 1st in the junior light fawn males and Champion Light Fawn

WF Keystone – 1st in the intermediate light fawn male

WF Fire Cracker – 1st in the senior medium fawn males, Champion Fawn and Supreme Champion

Fire Cracker on stud duty

Following a number of successful years in the show ring, WF Fire Cracker is now out in the local alpaca community on stud service duties, having has spent much of the summer at several high profile stud farms in North Canterbury. We already have a number a classy cria sired by this male and we wish the current breeders well from his services.

With four Supreme Championships to his credit, plus a string of other broad ribbons, this stunning young medium fawn male is one of the best males we have bred to date from our International Fleece Supreme Champion, Forestglen Seth.

As you can imagine we are very proud of WF Fire Cracker, with his super soft fleece that is densely packed on to his true to type frame and it is not hard to see why the judges also like him so much. This male is a real winner.

2014 fleece stats (5th fleece) very impressive – 18.7u, 3.4 SD, 17.9 CV and CF of 100%.
