We awoke to a lovely day today and after the dull, wet weather of late, it was a very welcomed treat! Our work on the farm recently has included upgrading our bio-security precautions and taking delivery of additional hay, haylage and straw which we have now re-stacked in the barn.
Today, we welcomed Carl and Lisa from Willowbank Alpaca Stud who, over the last several months, had been discussing with us the purchase of some of our Alpacas in order to complete their plans to develop their own Alpaca breeding enterprise. Today, after an in-depth inspection and detailed discussions about the various blood lines and phenotype, they finally selected 5 of them.
Afterwards, we retired for a bite to eat and a general chat about Alpacas and their progress with Willowbank. Sheila and I are very happy that they will be going to a very dedicated and enthusiastic couple who will, I am sure, make a resounding success of their business.
