Galaxy is the dam of Beck Brow Crafter who was featured in my last blog. I am delighted to say that we have recently found the perfect solution to our dilemma regarding his future. Fangdale Alpacas, based in Yorkshire were happy to work with us to ensure we kept some interest in him. Thus, whilst Fangdale are now his proud new owners, they have allowed us to retain some stud service for the future. We wish them every success.
Last Saturday was the NWAG Alpaca Championships. Robyn and I had a busy time winning six Championships and five Reserve Championships. In fact we received a broad ribbon in every colour category that we had entries. The boys took Champion and Reserve Black (no grey or brown entered), Champion and Reserve Fawn, Champion Light (we only had one entered) and Champion and Reserve White.
Females; Reserve Champion Black, Champion Brown, Reserve Champion Light (no fawn or grey entered) and Champion White. The icing on the cake was Beck Brow First Edition retaining his Best of British and Supreme Championship from last year.
The show was fun as always. With Mary-Jo Smith judging and Julia Corrigan-Stuart as apprentice, we all learnt lots as well as enjoying ourselves.
