Crias

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.

    

2018 Crias

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.

Next to be born was this gorgeous little girl called Christabel. Named after Christabel Pankhust. Her dam is CSA Nikita and her sire is the stunning Bozedown dream chaser. We hope to improve our grey genetics and she will become a lovely addition to our breeding programme.   

Our last arrival this year was a gorgeous grey boy called Felix. His dam is Bow and his sire is Fowberry Richebourg. He already has lots of presence and good conformation. 

We hope to take him to the National Alpaca show next year and see how he does in the show ring.
