A busy weekend

While Chris and Adrienne were at Royal Adelaide Show winning best black in the halter and fleece classes with Leaenna Armani, WOO HOO!

Steve and I were selling some of our friendly pets.

Hello Sailor is now starting a new life in Wattle Flat, he’s even been renamed ” Jasper”.

Winter and Summer Sunset went on a road trip to the lush pastures of Millicent, Maureen their new owner has a small herd of alpacas so they will get plenty of love and attention.

It’s always sad to say goodbye to such beautifully natured animals but we are very happy they have found such loving homes. It also makes more room in the paddocks for Armani offspring….

Welcome to our website

Steve and Haylilla BolleAt last our website is taking shape.

The mating season is finally over, so we’ve had our  last weekend return trip to collect the stud boys,  Steve is very relieved.

We have one final pregnant girl due, so fingers crossed she chooses a sunny day to deliver.

It’s been a wonderful breeding season, we are very happy with the results from our Stud males. Highlights have included Tiberio throwing 17 cria, (mainly grey) 8  girls and 9 boys. Armani’s eagerly awaited first progeny arrive with 4 girls and 1 boy. Futuris’s cria include a light fawn male with 12.7 mid side micron statistics!

To our added delight, one of our favorite girls Fleur De Lys Charisse had a white female cria out of  herd-sire Windsong Valley Royal Inca, the cria named Haylilla Inca Queen  has recently been fleece tested with a 12.5 mid side micron.

It’s almost time for weaning the late 2012 offspring. Our weekends will now be busy halter training. In previous years we have had varying degrees of success, so if you have any tips or tricks to share  – we’d love to hear!
