Each year we hope to have healthy, lively crias born on the farm. The crias we have will either enter into our breeding programme, join our team of walking alpacas or we may sell some. In 2014 we had 3 boy crias which became our first walking alpacas. 2015 gave us 1 female who has joined our breeding progamme and 2 boys, one of which we hope to become a stud male as he has superfine fleece and the other boy has again joined our walkers. In 2016 we had 1 female and 1 boy again the female will join our breeding progamme and the boy has began walking. 2017 has been a very successful breeding year here on the farm and have had 4 females and 3 boys.
The boy crias that are born here on the farm we name after South American footballers and the girls we name after strong women from history.
First born this year was Edu. He is a blue eyed white boy, Which makes hime very striking and stands out from the rest of the alpacas.
His dam is Candy and his sire id Fowberry Richebourg.
We hope to be abkle to use his super soft fleece for some of our lovely products and also we hope we will follow in his half brothers footsteps (Eusabio) and join our team of walking boys.
This is Rhea who was born on the same day as Artemis and her mother is Bow. Bow was a first time mother this year and didnt really understand how to be a mother so we ended up bottle feeding Rhea. She is a strong, demanding girl. Who spends most of her time with best friend Artemis and her mother Popcorn. Her sire is Toft Rastaban.
This stunning little man is called Nightwing. Him and his mother joined our herd in december 2017 from CS Alpacas. He is Mid Rose grey and his dam is CS Alpacas Nikita(Rose grey) and his sire is EP Cambridge Gunsmith(Mid Grey). We hope to show Nightwing this year with the aim that he will become a stud male to improve and bring new genetics to our herd.
