Beck Brow Glory Daze BAS National Supreme Champion Fleece and Halter 2022
******Beck Brow Glory Daze (Dam: Beck Brow Bedazzle. Sire: Bozedown Blaze of Glory) wins the National Supreme Championship in Halter and Fleece 2022 (white adult Huacaya)******
After a long two year absence, The BAS National Halter Show was back in business during the last weekend of March 2022. As a member of the National Show Committee, it’s always a busy time running up to the event with the added challenge of keeping the show team clean. This was a complete fail in the case of Beck Brow Glory Daze who just loves a muddy puddle. We also have some very ‘seedy’ hay so most looked like they were wearing their lunch.
Still, we set off with our show team of 25 (our largest team to date) full of excitement at being able to show at the National Halter and Fleece Show again, but also the excitement of seeing other breeders and their alpacas. We had a convoy of three vehicles heading down the M6 to Telford on the Thursday before the show.
Beck Brow Suri Woodstock
Friday afternoon saw the dark Suri classes judged, which attracted a pleasingly large number of spectators and it was great to see the Suris together as a group (especially for those watching on the live feed). We had a successful afternoon with our three entries achieving:
Beck Brow Suri Secret Agent – 1st Intermediate Fawn Male
Beck Brow Suri Woodstock – Champion Brown Male
Beck Brow Black Tulip – Champion Black Female
We also got to know the results of the Champion of Champions National Fleece Show 2022 –
Beck Brow Glory Daze had been awarded Huacaya Supreme, Best of British and Judge’s Choice – a great start to the event!

Saturday morning saw the big guns in the ring. Beck Brow Glory Daze (adult) and Beck Brow Bring It On (Intermediate) are both regional reigning Supreme Champions so there was some hope of them doing well, but to get Champion and Reserve National White Male was more than we dare hope. To top it off the contender for Reserve was Beck Brow Moves Like Jagger. All three males are sired by our co-owned male Bozedown Blaze of Glory (also the sire of the Light Female Champion owned by Rivenherd).
As the show went on we had to keep pinching ourselves. Everyone placed mainly 1st or 2nd and the sashes and trophies kept on coming;
Beck Brow Wheels on Fire – Reserve National Champion Light Male
Beck Brow No Jacket Required – National Champion Fawn Male
Beck Brow The Instigator – National Champion Brown Male
Beck Brow Come As You Are – National Champion Modern Grey Male
Beck Brow Lipstick and Powder – National Champion White Female
Whilst for some getting Supreme is the absolute aim of the show, we have always talked about depth and breadth and getting a championship on more than one alpaca was our main aim. However, obtaining the Supreme in Fleece and Halter was certainly the cherry on a well-iced cake. All in all, we packed twelve trophies in the truck for the return journey home. What a weekend. What a haul!
