Getting ready for Toowoomba Show next week 2nd April 2011. Hoping for some rain early in the week to give the boys and girls a wash and then some nice warm days beforehand to dry them out.
Really hoping Rosie gives birth soon - due yesterday - to Satchmo's first born.
We are situated on 40 acres in the hills behind Narangba, Queensland. We have owned the property for 20 years and bred Alpacas for 6 years.
We have Suri Alpaca (long dreadlocks) and Huacaya Alpaca (soft afro) in black, white, brown and fawns. At the moment we have five stud males, a black Suri, black Huacaya, two fawn Suris and joint ownership of a brown Suri who resides in Queensland for six months of the year and they are all available for outside mating.
Our aim is to improve the fleeces with each generation and so we attend all the local shows in order to get outside opinions on our Alpaca's from both judges and fellow breeders. Each year we have had better results, with 2010 achieving several supreme ribbons and Queensland Suri of the Year and Queensland Huacaya of the Year.
If you are thinking of owning Alpacas or are looking for new lines for your existing flock, we will be happy to show you around our farm.
We will have Alpacas for sale in the coming year. We also have a few pet quality alpacas for lawn mowing.
