Cria photos and an update...........................

Yesterday, I was looking to update our Cria photos and so, armed with my trusty SLR, I ventured out amongst the squally showers and "snapped" a few of our 2009 Cria. I have to say that all have really come on a great deal and their fleeces have grown so much! Must be the wet weather!



The photo above is "Miss Moneypenny", our premature girl. She is certainly looking better now!


This photo is of "Navigator" who is a Cambridge Neptune boy and the first of our male Crias this year.









Here is a close-up of "Polaris", our Accoyo Remarque male.











To the right is a photo of "Sundown" our third male Cria out of Accoyo Killawasi.











Here is "Metisha" our first Cambridge Neptune female.










On another note, some of you will know that we have had an application in place with our local Council for our Alpaca Breeding enterprise for over a year now. The local councillor in our ward has taken it upon himself to prevent us from residing at our site and since it is imperative to live with our herd, we have decided to take it to a Public Inquiry. This is taking place on 11th August and I will update this blog with the outcome!

  5. Although I don't fully understand what your application is about (I blame it on English being my second language), I truly wish everything works out for you. You seem like nice people to me :-)

  7. Good luck with your appeal - it seems some people think you just put alpacas in a field and check them once a week, not realising the hard work, anguish and constant attention that good husbandry requires.
