Who’s a big boy then?

No, it’s not an alpaca after a growth spurt, it’s Spinach the llama at Catanger Llamas. He’s a very handsome chap & looking good at a record 21 years old

The self-weighing alpaca

It’s weighing time again. Some are not so keen on getting on the scales, but Galatea is so eager she gets on straight away – then sits down so we can’t weigh the others!

Pigeon Hill Raphael – May 2016

Our prize winning stud male Raphael was a great hit with the lady alpacas when he arrived at Great Ground Farm last summer. It won’t be long now before we see his offspring arrive…

With Meon Valley Ardingly as his sire, he promises to be the father of some beautiful cria.

With two daughters of Alpaca Stud Nyetimber & two from Redhill Baron amongst those expecting his progeny (notwithstanding the sometimes unexpected results of alpaca couplings), we have high hopes for the 2016 youngsters.
