This last weekend saw us lose one of our favourites, Popham Daniel, who has been resident with us for the last 5 years went down to Gers as the main stud for new breeder Céline Seban and her huband.
His nine hour journey was broken up with a stop off at Europa Alpacas to pick up their other new stud and companion Edmond Socks. Good luck to them with them both.
It was sad to see him go but he has left us with some lovely cria, a nice young bay black male, with the same temperament and an extremely fine fleece and little Knuckles another very fine boy, brown, both with super heads.
The cria are now all weaned and doing well. I hate when they are just separated, they look so sad. Mothers didn't seem to bother this year but one little cria did miss his mum. Little Knuckles just ran up and down the fence. Finally let him up the raceway to see the big boys and he seemed comforted by that and was fine after.
