We purchased our first suri female in September 2006, "Alpacaspecialist Silvertone". Silvertone (known as "PINK" to her friends) is a rose grey F1 suri. Her sire is a medium grey suri, Parnabrae Argento, now standing in New South Wales. Her dam is a fine brown huacaya, Bonnie Park Coppertone. Her pedigree includes the likes of Coonawarra Julius, NWA Ltd Ruffo and the white suri sire ILR NGG Ferrari (dec.) who was sold to New Zealand.
PINK has done well in the show ring, particularly in South Australia where she has to compete against all colours including white. At the Mt Pleasant Show in March 2007, PINK won the intermediate female class, was awarded Champion Intermediate Suri and then Grand Champion Suri. In September 2007 PINK won the adult female class at the Victorian Colourbration show and was awarded Supreme "All other colours" Suri. She then followed up with a first place at the Royal Melbourne Show. At the 2008 International Fleece Show, PINK's first fleece won the 18 - 30 month grey class. She was also awarded "Champion Grey Suri Fleece".
At this point PINK retired from the show ring, however we continued to show her fleeces, gaining 2nd at the 2009 AAA National Show - one of only two South Australian suri fleeces to win ribbons at that show.
