Happy 2nd Birthday Lady Godiva

Not only is today our 19th wedding anniversary it is also Lady Godiva's 2nd birthday.

Lady Godiva is one of those alpacas you can't help but fall in love with.  She is from Golden Guinea and has inherited his chilled back attitude and friendly personality.  She also has a very nice fleece to go with it, her second fleece stats came back as 20.7micron 4.8SD 4.4% over 30.

Despite being in the early stages of pregnancy, she is spitting off to our fawn champion Barnacre Sandstorm still meets you at the gate and loves the attention.  She is even happy with cuddles from small people (!!) which is not something we usually have round here.

This was Demmie and Connor enjoying a Godiva moment whilst they were visiting at the weekend.

I'm beginning to wonder if I should be selling her or not.

We have been doing matings and spit offs today, this morning we headed off to Beckbrow Alpacas for an outside mating.  No mater how many quality studs you have at home it is always important to introduce new genetics into the herd, and this is our way of doing just that.

When we returned we had four girls to spit off, luck for us, but not so luck for poor Sandstorm all four spat, in fact he also got a good kick from Mary too.  Using a none black as a spit off boy for Mary wasn't ideal as she only tends to like black boys but I'm pretty sure she's ovulated but I'll make sure Loki gets the job next week!
