A New Home for Timbertop Goldmine of Beck Brow
We had, until a couple of weeks ago, never given even the slightest consideration to the thought of releasing for sale Timbertop Goldmine of Beck Brow. Goldmine, since his importation in September 2013, has had such a great influence in taking our coloured breeding programme to a national championship level. He has been to our coloured herd, what Beck Brow Explorer has been to our light. However, sometimes it is about asking the right question at precisely the right time.
The question was asked just after I had been looking through our weanlings (with the intention of making the provisional selection for our National Show team). In the light of having been very impressed by two young Goldmine boys (Beck Brow Gee Whizz and Beck Brow Mykonos) the proposition was given some serious thought. A difficult decision as this means that Goldmine is still producing some outstanding progeny, but it also means that we have two junior sons with serious stud potential, along with an intermediate (Beck Brow Vidal) and adult (Beck Brow On The Money) already retained as studs for our farm.
Thus after much deliberation, we are very pleased to congratulate Angela and Stuart of Acton Hill Alpacas on their purchase of Timbertop Goldmine of Beck Brow. We know that Goldmine is going to a fantastic new home. The welfare of the alpacas and bio-security at Acton Hill is top rate. Goldmine will now be available for drive-by matings in the Midlands, allowing easier access to his genetics for those in the South of England (strick bio-security conditions apply).
Goldmine has produced so many champions for ourselves and for our clients. His progeny born between 2015-2017 have so far been awarded 38 championships and 11 reserve championships, and I am happy to predict more from his 2018 drop.
At the 2018 BAS National Show his progeny were awarded; Fawn Female Champion halter (Beck Brow Kiss Me Quick), Reserve Champion Light Male halter (Beck Brow Vidal), Champion Brown Fleece (Beck Brow Back of the Net). Also performing very well was Beck Brow Bees Knees who was awarded Champion Fawn Male and overall Fawn Champion at the NWAG Alpaca Championships.
We wish Angela and Stuart continued success with this high performing male.
Beck Brow On The Money will be available for outside matings in 2019, providing continued easy access to Goldmine genetics for those in the North of England and Scotland.
