Timbertop CT Goldmine ET was purchased from Beck Brow Alpacas in 2019. Goldmine came to Acton Hill Alpacas to improve our own herd and bring his elite genetics to the Midlands area, making them more accessible to breeders large and small. After being imported into the UK in October 2013, Goldmine spent 5 years as a working stud at Beck Brow Alpacas where he sired over 100 progenies.
Goldmine consistently produces championship progeny, he has over 60 of his offspring that have been awarded championships and reserve championships sashes. His son’s Beck Brow Vidal and Beck Brow On The Money (pictured below) have been retained as Studs by Beck Brow Alpacas. At the 2018 BAS National Show his progeny was 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.
Offering sought-after Australian genetics, Goldmine was sired by the renowned Patagonia Celtic Triumph, winner of 7 Supreme Championships. This, combined with Purrumbette El Dorado on both his dam and sire’s sides, make this fawn male something special. His dam, Timbertop Miss Twiggy, was used by Timbertop Stud in their ET programme and has produced 5 certified stud males who are working both in Australia and Europe.
Fleece & Appearance
With elite genetics behind him, it comes as no surprise that Goldmine has a stunning fleece. His fleece stats taken at 5 years (November 2012) are: MFD 17.4, SD 3, CV 17.1 % CF 100%. This is incredibly fine for a working male of this age. Add to this great density, fleece growth and uniformity of colour, Goldmine is superb at giving great fineness, density and organisation to his offspring. Paired with a good female, Goldmine takes cria to the next level. However, it doesn’t matter if you have a female who isn’t fine or particularly dense as Goldmine will do his magic. Goldmine has had very good progeny to dams of all colours, including grey. He is a compact, perfectly balanced male with great strength of bone and a very stylish, true-to-type head shape. Goldmine has real presence in the paddock.
