Legend has landed (Paul)

Evening all and congratulations to the men's GB gymnastic team - amazing bronze medal!

Tonight Debbie and I are delighted to share with you the news about Legend.

Here he is, with Debbie leading him off the trailer and a guard of honour awaiting his arrival!  Legend's journey took him past the nation's capital city although (sorry Bev) the nation was Scotland and the capital we passed was Edinburgh on our way up to Tealing, Angus in Scotland.

Why you ask?  I'll tell you in a minute, there are some pictures to enjoy first!
 Legend checking out the surroundings - are they alpacas in the distance?
 Hello ladies!
 Facilities in Tealing, Angus are very regal, check out this amazing shelter with panoramic views! The construction is fantastic and you will be pleased to know that the sides are now on and Legend is making good use of it, not before he was caught on his first night nipping through one of the spaces in the framing!
So what's going on?  Well we are so excited to announce that Legend is now co-owned with an equally excited Alison and John Wiseman of Balnuith Alpacas.  Several of our alpaca girls have Legend cria on the ground and some are pregnant to him as well.  Alison and John wanted to give their super herd of girls a fantastic genetic boost and after considering a number of options decided that Legend is their man.

We expect that Legend will be standing at stud at Balnuith Farm for the foreseeable future and Scottish breeders are very welcome to get in touch with either Barnacre or Balnuith Alpacas to arrange a viewing of this new Scottish resident.

Debbie and I are really looking forward to our partnership with Alison and John, they are great company and made us very welcome at their home.  Their was even opportunity for one of my favourite past-times (thanks Alison it was superb!):

Congratulations to Alison and John, you have fantastic genetics in Wellground Legend of Spartacus.
Interestingly, Legend's mother EP Cambridge Giselle is due to birth here any day now, she is pregnant to EP Cambridge Samson this time, so hopefully the offspring should be genetically very similar to Wellground Legend of Spartacus.
Legend is a big favourite, here, wishing you much success with him.
