With the 2010 show season quickly approaching, Iím hoping to emulate last yearsí successes with a new show team stepping out to strut their stuff
Over the next few months weíll be out and about at:
Blacktown Show, on the 20th and 21st of February, with a display for the public so they may appreciate these wonderful creatures.
Then to Canberra Royal for the first competition of the year the next weekend, 26th to 28th of February.
(RESULTS: BENTLEY 2ND, COCHISE 2ND, HOCUS POCUS 3RD)
Bathurst Royal Show, 6th and 7th of March
Castle Hill Show on the 14th of March
Camden Show on the 20th of March
Thank heavens for a weekend off..... Before Sydney Royal Show from the 1st to the 5th of April
And then Hawkesbury Show on the 24th of April.
Iíve had the pleasure over the past year of introducing a number of new breeders to this obsession of Alpaca ownership and some of them will be entering the showing for the first time also, wishing Alyssa Flynn (with Follyfoot Farm Armarni and Follyfoot Farm Halle Berry) and Renee Hollings with Destiny the very best of luck for the coming shows. Debra Trostian, I hope, will be seen later in the year with Bliss and Bronte.
May, will see Follyfoot Farm open every day for National Alpaca Week from the 1st to the 9th; further details will be posted as they come available.
Of course our Machoís will all be available for Stud Servicing duties during this time; we almost have a full stable of colours with:
ILR NWA Peruvian Baltazar (Imp USA), a lovely white man throwing both white and coloured Cria.
Belgrave Park Michelangelo, a true Medium/Dark Fawn Macho, now with his first gorgeous Cria on the ground we are so pleased with the exceptional quality of these babes.
Greenwood Bentley: Almost completing his show career, eclipsing the Grey classes, I hope he will go out with a bang ! is now working and so we eagerly await his first progeny, Bentley will only be available for LIMITED OUTSIDE MATINGS so please contact me for further details ASAP if you wish to enhance your genetic base with his enviable charactistics.
Red Ridge El Rastus also has the first crop of Cria on the ground and thus far is siring true blue black offspring, very exciting.........
Morning Star Hal is the senior male, although a lovely blue black, his grey genetics are passed onto his progeny, a very useful boy for improving the density of your coloured females.
And then folks Iím taking a few weeks R n R...........I think Iíll need it
