The alpaca-mobile reveal!

As is the norm at the moment, we are again up against the clock. The alpaca transporter (alpaca-mobile/white van/pacca passion it what you will) came back from the sign writers at 19.30 hrs this evening, meaning that Paul only has a couple of hours tomorrow morning to get the fans installed before we are off to the BAS National Show. So I apologise for the poor photography (it was raining and 8pm) but here it is (I know I usually go for less is more but hey!)

Driver's side featuring Anzac Almost Illegal's head shot (I did not park it by the way)

Rear and passenger side featuring Waradene St. Patrick of EPC, Anzac Almost Illegal, and some daffodils.

The front  with our logo (as I said rushed photography, but as you can see it was raining, and I'd just had my hair done!)

We have so much to do in the morning before we leave but I have managed to already get in some hand over stuff for Robyn and Amanda today. What if anybody looks like birthing? If in doubt ring me... and if in real doubt ring the vet!

One of the Young punks also got in a bit of tractor driver training. I suspect that the other Young Punk will not be best pleased that she got in there first!

 Robyn on the Massey.

Oh, and we also let Waradene St. Patrick of EPC have his first Beck Brow mating. Mark asked why we had been waiting; what with April considered the perfect time for births? The answer? Simple we have a family wedding in early April and it was about avoiding any births at that time...nothing more scientific I'm afraid.


  1. Ohh! That is a lovely, lovely van!
    Best wishes for the show - looking forward to hearing all about it.

  2. Glad you've got your priorities right - blog first, preparations second! Van looks great, have a good time at the show.

  3. The van looks fab, and I'm sure the contents will tomorrow too!

  4. Wow...super van! Good luck at the show!

  5. Van looks great! Good luck and hopefully see you up there on Sunday.

  6. Fab looking van, the drivers behind you will enjoy studying the two gorgeous boys on the back door. All the very best wishes for this weekend, keep us updated..

  7. Makes the old 'Ifor Williams' look a bit dated eh? Great advertising for 'brand alpaca' as well as Beckbrow- well done you! Shirley & Robbie

  8. Great looking van and the signage is impressive. Good luck at the show.
