A better penning solution!

After a long "family illness" and a subsequent reduction of our herd, I am back to report a more recent enhancement to Easter-Wood. One of the problems we frequently encounter is the need for an effective and reliable penning facility and whilst the hurdles have given us a flexible solution in the past, it was felt that a more permanent solution was required so following many phone calls to various companies, we managed to contact a brilliant company called "Cheval Liberte (UK) Ltd. Their professionalism, work ethic and attention to detail is exemplary and worthy of a "plug". With these stables in place, we have  an ideal method of containing the alpacas during shearing, birthing and isolation during illness, etc.

With respect to our alpacas, we are still awaiting our first cria birth this year particularly with one of our girls, who seems to be hanging on, despite looking like a blimp at the moment! She was mated with Lawbreakers Legend last year and we are hoping for a rather attractive light brown cria!

Will be back soon.
