Return of old friends

Celebrating the Spring Equinox with another fine day, we had another busy session working on the pig enclosure which has now been complimented with a finished pig ark and stock fencing. The final job will be the installation of an electric wire positioned low to the ground which should dissuade the piglets trying to burrow under the fencing and will hopefully put off any attempts of foxes and rabbits doing likewise! Early next week, we will be heading to Alton to collect the Kune Kune's from Tom and Sarah at Mill Cottage Farm Experience.

Today, we were delighted to welcome back Gemma and Andrew to Easter-Wood for them to select their alpacas who will make up their core herd. Their selection are four females: Easter-Wood Pandora, Easter-Wood Cadbury, Easter-Wood Truffle, Easter-Wood Moon Dance and their potential herd Sire, Easter-Wood Sundown. They are extremely passionate and enthusiastic about the forthcoming project of setting up their alpaca breeding business and we are so pleased for them. They are a lovely couple and with their comittment, passion and energy, we are very confident that they will add significant value to the Alpaca Breeding world.

Having just seen the forthcoming weather forecast for the week on Countryfile, we will be very actively getting all of the paddocks cleaned and looking pristine again after the wet and wild weather we have endured during the last few weeks (having said that, Countryfile also reported that the month of March in the UK experienced a lower rainfall than average!!).

I will close for tonight but will return again soon.

    A huge thank you from both of us for your amazing help so far.

    Sheila and Jeff have offered incredible assistance to us in helping us set up our herd. Our passion and energy to make our herd a success and do our bit in improving the Alpaca breeding world is down, in no small part, to Sheila and Jeff. Easter-Wood has absolutely superb examples of Elite Alpacas and it is a privilege to be able to work so closely with them.

    Best wishes to all.

    Gemma and Andrew
