I watched this guy blow through the show season in 2015 and 2016, championship after championship.
A modern grey outshining a typically highly competitive grey class to win over and over again.
Thirteen Times!
His sire is Crystal Spartan, the 2010 Brown Huacaya Male Futurity Color Champion who has taken five other top Championship banners. His dam, Quarry Ridge Marimba, is a Champion herself and has produced champion offspring. Silver Lining has inherited outstanding characteristics from outstanding parents.

I remember the fiber samples - zipper like crimp in tight bundles. The stuff you just go WOW over.
Dense.
Uniform.
L O V E
Not to mention Conformation - a solid boxy boy with amazing presence.
I sent a couple of girls out to Faith Perkins to be bred. Two of my best youngsters. One a fawn with exquisite character and density herself (GF Solstice, a Justified daughter) and the other a champion modern herself (Bomber's Diamond Lil) originating from Inga Cloud and Cupid (A combination that is one of the cornerstone's of Willow Wind's program) and by Bea-2 Bomber.
The outcomes were noteworthy.
A true black male out of Solstice (Willowwind's Bo Sean) and a purely stunning modern silver grey female out of Lil (Willow Wind's Halo).
Both of those animals are keepers.

Terry Passanante from Clover Bottom Alpaca Ranch offered me a half share in this delightful boy and I jumped.
Silver Lining has gone on to produce modern grey and a crazy beautiful fawn here at Willow Wind in 2021. He is paired with a few females for 2022 and his date list grows for 2023 offspring.
If you are looking for excellence in Modern Grey or just EXCELLENCE
Silver Lining might be your guy.
