Our Delivery Arrives

Hi all,

We were up bright and early this morning, not due to the clocks going back and that we had forgot oh no, we had remembered that, as today was the day of our special delivery. For some this had been an easy investigation.....hey Jayne!

At around eleven this morning we got an advanced warning to get the kettle on as our special packages were nearly here, about ten minutes later the Wellground Wagon rolled into our farm with two special alpacas in the back.
Wellground Lora
Wellground Lora is sired by Cambridge Buckingham and her dam is EP Cambridge Giselle. Wellground Lora has been mated to Wellground Close Encounter so some special genetics coming through here.
Wellground Moody Blue
Wellground Moody Blue is sired by EP Cambridge Samson and his dam is EP Cambridge Adelaide Blue. Wellground Moody Blue is a future herd sire for us allowing us to offer further elite genetics throughout our herd. He is still only a youngster at the minute so he has some growing to do and so maturing before we can see exactly what will be passed through in to his progeny, however exciting times ahead we hope.

We would also like to thank Rob and Les from Wellground Alpaca Stud, for allowing us to purchase elite genetics directly from their own core herd, thank you guys, it is much appreciated to have been given this opportunity.

So we are set again now with our own core herd being in a better position with sort after genetics coming through the mix ready for release next year after our selection process has been made. Keep an eye out for what we are going to release next year.

Express Delivery Service!

Hi folks,

Well I have just walked in from work and decided it was time to update the blog again.

We are pleased to say that Nick and Sharon of Pine Tree Alpacas are getting on very well with their new herd, well done guys.

Last weekend we were busy concreting again this time creating purpose built stud pens and birthing pens, all of which are indoors with heat lamp facilities for those moments when you just never know when your going to need them. After the concrete had gone off it was time to lay all the blocks that were to form the partitioning. Well I'm glad that job is finally finished as with the weather turning colder it's nice to see the stud boys finally in their proper pens rather than hurdles making up the pens.

Tomorrow we are expecting a very special delivery or two, its on express delivery service, well as express as a van goes! But we are really excited to be receiving this package as its an important element to our business to help carry us forwards. More on this tomorrow!

Well for now that's it until tomorrow with news of the express packages!
