At 8 years old Ascent has spent most of his time in show rings and earning every moment of every show he has ever attended!! Now with all his ribbons, plaques, and banners which will remain on his show wall along with his portrait!
We need to focus more on his fleece and its lingering fineness, exceptional crimp while passing those same genetics on to his offspring! Ascent has many accomplishments, most impressive is his ability to maintain a "20" micron at 7 years old!!! It is completely unbelievable to me. We fell in love with this boy the moment we met him...and for Odin Falls Alpacas, it was a complete WIN for us! His offspring, of which many are blue ribbon and multi-champions themselves!
Ascent's final halter show was at the 2012 National's - where he, at 6 years old, took both Blue and Reserve Champion!!! Judge Kevin O'Leary's comments:
"At 6 years old, he is the finest of all 6. It is amazing how is is able to retain his fineness for so long. He has great architecture, great poise and perfect uniformity and consistency. He is indisputable my first choice. And back in for the championship he stated that,"He is amazing at 6 years old and finer than some of the younger ones. He would have taken color champion if he wasn't so dusty....JOKE! He has presence, poise and character."
So with his final 14th Blue ribbon and 4 championships behind him, he was pulled from the show string and allow to do what he really wants to do....BREED!
