A New Alpaca Herd Is Established

Hi All,

Well it's been an early start for us this morning as we loaded up the trailer and headed off to deliver a foundation herd to their new owners Nick and Sharon from Pine Tree Alpacas in Leicestershire. Nick and Sharon have been planning this day for sometime now with us and we are pleased to announce that their dreams are finally starting to come true for them.

Pine Tree Alpacas have selected a range of alpacas from our herd enabling them to offer a variety of packages, some show winners too!

Sharon and Nick, with a congratulating hug from Lisa

We would like to wish Nick and Sharon all the very best and every success in the future, hopefully see you at some fleece shows guys.

Well it was back home to relieve the farm sitter from her duties and a nice cup of tea was welcoming us on our arrival. It feels a little odd seeing the paddocks 19 alpacas lighter.

The recent weather situation has certainly not had the effects on us this time round after we invested the time and money into concreting the barns and organising the drainage, earlier this year with the severe weather we were constantly getting flooded out which after more than a few times of this happening, it starts to get a little annoying as you can imagine. The investment has certainly been worthwhile as not a drop has entered our barns this time, so smiling faces around.

Well that's all for now, take care all.

We Are Happy With A Second

Hi folks,

Well again it's been a long time but I'm back again. It's been very busy for us over the last few months with one thing and another going on, hopefully we can reveal some of what's been happening in the not to distant future.

We are still in birthing mode with out latest female cria being born yesterday morning, a solid white female from Wellground Cyan, sired by Wellground Relentless, we are excited about this one but will have to wait and see what becomes of her as you just never now.

Today was an early start as I was off to the GWR Fleece and Fibre Show in Frome. I made the trophies again this year and sponsored the Supreme Champion Huacaya and Suri classes. This is a fantastic show concept that we have attended now for the last three years being placed with our fleeces each year, this year being of no exception and coming home with a second place from a class of thirteen in the Junior Huacaya Fawn, we are more than happy with that as this is a result of our own breeding decisions. Congratulations to all the other entrants that won.

It feels good to be back blogging again, let's see if I can keep up with it again, I know a certain Scot will have something to say!!

That's all for now.
