The Futurity Show

Both Sheila and I had our eyes well and truly opened with our trip to the British Futurity 2015 and what a great show it was. Well organised, well presented and full of passionate breeders who are only too willing to offer advice to other breeders. Since we have been off the circuit for some time due to personal circumstances, we both looked forward to an exciting show and of course, we weren't disappointed. We met up with some of our old friends again and also met a number of new ones.
Whilst it wasn't our finest hour with our entry, the extraordinary level of quality in the alpacas was exemplary and this in itself fuelled our determination for greater success next time.

Now that the Easter-Wood herd has been enhanced with our programme of matings last year with both "The Chairman" and "Lawbreaker" genetics, we are hoping to see a crop of fine, high quality cria this summer. Anyway, we can't wait for the milder, sunnier weather and the healthy pastures which it brings.
