World Class

Today was the start of the World Alpaca Conference and due to commitments on the farm I have been unable to go which is a real shame, but I did get to soak up some of the atmosphere during the judging of the fleeces last week.

I am so proud to announce that our home bred girl, Barnacre Meketaten came second in the junior brown class, competing against fleeces from around the world.

She is a stunning girl bred from our brown stud Golden Guinea and our brown girl, Nefertiti, Paul purchased off his own back a few years ago when he went to pick up Guinea.

Meketaten is a fantastic girl who has done well at all the shows she's entered, including being reserve champion at the Kelso show last year.

Here she is a couple of days old.


And shortly after shearing...
