A Good End To The Week

Hi Folks,
Well the final decisions have been made to our foundation herd. After a long trip to Pipley Court Alpacas we were greeted by Pauline and Roger who like most breeders I'm sure, are just as enthusiastic as we are about Alpacas. We had a fantastic day walking around the paddocks selecting our final girls. Pauline and Roger have an amazing place and take allot of pride in the welfare of the animals, they are a real credit to them, well done they should be very proud. We also want to thank Rob and Lesley from Wellground Alpacas, as they to, like most of you know are a fantastic couple, full of knowledge and support just when you need them the most, regardless of what time it is they are always there, so a big thank you guys.

We are very pleased with our selection of breeding females. We have managed to achieve what we always set out to do, buying the very best elite genetics that we could afford.

We are really looking forwards to this years cria being born, as we should get some very exciting genetics being produced from our girls, more on than in the next few months. The picture below, although not the best picture I have ever taken, shows the fleece of one of our girls, she should produce something fantastic next year.

We are so excited now that are selection of girls are confirmed, we can concentrate now on getting other things into place. We have been busy trying to finalise our paddock layout, as we want to be sure we have the best layout possible to help reduce stress to any of our alpacas and to make our job that little bit easier. I couldn't resist another photo for you, the girl in the front of this picture is one of our selections, as is the picture below that.

Well what a fantastic end to our week, we have our business planner coming to see us next Tuesday and we have lots of plans and ideas to throw his way.
That's all for now, so enjoy the rest of the weekend.
