About this breeder:Easter-Wood Alpaca Stud is a BAS-registered, family-run Alpaca breeding enterprise, located in the Royal County of Berkshire. It is run by Sheila and Jeff Easter who have focused upon breeding elite genetics as the core of their business. The company, set up in 2008 is as a result of a long awaited dream of creating and managing a country-based livestock business.

This husband and wife team are passionate about Alpacas and have created a pivotal business around their first 5 Elite Australian Alpacas purchased back in June 2008. In August 2008, the herd was further complimented by 13 Alpacas consisting of a mix of both pregnant females and 3 cria. This again was further enhanced with a purchase of a half share of an award-winning stud male; Our first herd sire, Cambridge Ice Cool Lad has helped the herd's development, producing some stunning progeny during the following 3 years. Easter-Wood are now the proud owners of progeny from some of the world's best genetics including; Cambridge The Chairman of ACC and Eringa Park Lawbreaker of EPC. Our current stud males are direct descendants of these wonderful animals which include Athos (Sire: The Chairman) and Lawbreakers Legend (Sire: Lawbreaker). The Easter-Wood farm operates strict bio-security rules. All of our Alpacas are BAS-registered and after-sales support provides full operational and medical records. We offer stud services and husbandry courses and we operate an on-line shop providing 100% pure Alpaca yarn and hand knitted Alpaca garments.

Sheila has a long history of animal husbandry including breeding experience. Her original passion for horses has been instrumental in the initial development of the Alpaca Stud and along with Jeff?s experience of creating and managing successful commercial businesses, the Easter-Wood team offer a well-developed and creative Elite Alpaca breeding and Services enterprise.

Today is a remarkable day. We are slowly coming out of 14 months of uncertainty. Our 3rd ‘Lockdown’ is being eased, it feels good doesn’t it?

Here at Houghton Hall, we have completed our shearing and our birthings are well underway. We have had some births very late in the day, probably due to the unsettled weather we are having. So this keeps us on our toes for sure. There are some beautiful Crias to watch in our paddocks, such a lovely time of year.

We enjoyed attending the South of England Show, it was so lovely to catch up with everyone. It certainly gave us a glimpse of normally.

Enjoy your birthing season. We will be popping some cria photos onto our website for you to enjoy.

All the best

Hello to you all from Houghton HQ and a very Happy New Year to you!

We now find ourselves galloping into 2021 and after all the challenges of 2020, our hope is that we will shortly be finding our new ‘normal’ and we will all feel happier about our future.

The flooding we have experienced has brought us many challenges with grazing and it looks like the water is not going anywhere fast! Thankfully, most of our animals are coping really well and we are so pleased we have barns to house the older animals that need a little more luxury. We are so looking forward to springtime, we do have a glimmer of springtime already as our daffodils are already showing off their glory.

Most of our cria have been weaned and are enjoying their new found freedom, it’s always so lovely to watch them pronking around the paddocks without a care in the world.

We trust you are keeping safe and hope that sometime in 2021 we can all get together and do what we love.

Happy New Year to all of our friends and clients, we hope you have had a wonderful festive season and have started 2016 with a bang!

Here is a quick round up of the last, very successful, 12 months for the team at Houghton Hall Alpacas.

2015 saw yet another sensational show season for Team Houghton.

Not forgetting the 2 Reserve Supreme Champions, 44 Champion, 33 Reserve Champion, 5 Best of British, 3 Judge?s Choice, 3 Best in Show ribbons, and countless rosettes. How will we top this in 2016?

There were some stunning cria on the ground in 2015 including the arrival of our first coloured suris. All have now been weaned and are ready for purchase.

We have had a bumper year of exports going out across Europe with breeders looking for both elite males and females, including to Italy, Poland and Belgium. Looking forward to many more over the next few months.

We were lucky enough to go out to the Australian National in Sydney, where we took the opportunity to purchase some prestigious new Suri and Huacaya Genetics from Australia, can?t wait for them to arrive in Spring!

Poisonous Plants Advice

When deciding to start caring for a herd of alpacas it is vital to prepare their new environment to ensure anything potentially dangerous or harmful is removed. Alpacas are ruminants (chew the cud) and are one of nature?s most efficient eaters as they absorb around third more of the vital nutrients from their food than similar animals such as sheep. They will often forage in the hedgerows and bushes for tasty morsels to supplement their diet. However, this diet can lead to alpacas being over adventurous and mistakenly eating something toxic. So, what should you look out for?

All nightshades, All lilies, Tomato & Potato plants, Toot, Inkweed, Hemlock, Willow-weed, Jerusalem Cherry, Mallow, Acorns, Oleander, Lily of the Valley, Rhododendron, Azalea, Ricinus, Yew, Ragwort, Comfrey, Horseradish, Privet, St.Johns wort, Sorrel, Hemp Nettle, Rhubarb, Iris, Buttercup, Linseed, Lupin, Clover, Chickweed, Laburnum, Meadow Saffron, Monks Hood, Oak, Foxglove, Grass Cuttings, Poppy.

Please be aware that this is not an exhaustive list of all poisonous plants, it is just important to be vigilant on your farm checking all hedgerows and paddocks and pathways. Remember alpacas have long necks so can reach quite a distance for that appetising branch.

Common symptoms of poisoning are; diarrhoea, vomiting, drooling saliva, colic, difficulty breathing, staggering, weakness, unsteady pupils, trembling, hypothermia, slow heartbeat, paralysis and head shaking.

If you think any of your herd may have eaten something they shouldn?t it is vital to consult a vet as soon as possible, often alpacas will not show signs until it is too late.

6th October 2015

What a busy Autumn it has been so far, we have been lucky enough to go out to the Australian National in Sydney (10th-13th September) where we caught up with some wonderful friends both from the Antipodes and the UK. We were privileged enough to see some truly exceptional Huacaya and Suri Alpacas on display throughout the course of the event. We took the opportunity to carefully select some incredible new bloodlines for our herd back in Cambridgeshire. And certainly bought some fabulous animals that we can?t wait to arrive in the UK so we can share some pictures with you, but now for the long wait!

Whilst we were ?Down Under? Mick even squeezed in the time to make a brief interview with the ABC radio team on their Country Hour to talk about the future of Australia/Europe exports. You can hear it here. (45 mins in)

We?ve had a number of large exports across into Europe and Northern Ireland over the last couple of months which has been keeping us very busy, along with a further few in the pipeline, the fun never stops at Houghton Hall Alpacas.

A couple of weeks ago we were lucky enough to be invited to attend the Ely Cathedral Annual Pet Service which was filmed by the BBC?s Songs of Praise team. We took two of our young show boys; Houghton Spirited (Champion Huacaya Black) and Houghton Mustang (Champion Suri White) who behaved impeccably for the TV Crew. If you missed the episode but fancy alpaca spotting it is still available on BBC iPlayer.
We are looking forward to welcoming participants to our farm for the upcoming BAS course dedicated to improving knowledge of Alpaca Breeding and Traits this weekend (9th-10th October). We hope the weather holds!

If that wasn?t enough, we are also all eagerly anticipating Alpaca Show Time which is a mere few weeks away now! Can?t wait to see you all there. We have lots of exciting things planned and we hope you enjoy spending your Halloween weekend with us.

What are those Alpacas doing in Houghton?

Are you one of the many people in North Cambridgeshire that have spotted the strange long necked sheep wandering the fields of Houghton and St.Ives that seem to have been growing in number over the last decade? Well it?s not the Alpacalypse , not yet anyway. . .

We are the team at Houghton Hall Alpacas, owned by the husband and wife team Mick and Liz George (of Skip Hire fame!). Those fuzzy giraffes are actually alpacas, don?t call them llamas or they might get upset!
Most people have lots of questions; why do we own them, what do we do with them, and can they come and see them.

First things first why do we own them? We have around 800 alpacas on our farm and we love each and every one of them. They are cute, furry, friendly and produce the most amazing fibre. Once you meet them you will be smitten. We like to think we have a happy haven for alpacas.

What do we do with our alpacas? Well there are a number of things; we breed them using the finest genetics we can source to produce the best quality alpacas, which we then show at a number of alpaca events across the UK (which we are quite good at ). Once a year the whole herd gets shorn and we sell this fibre on to a number of different places for use in clothing and bedding, and soon we will sell yarn from it too! We also have a few alpacas that we keep simply as pets.

You may be asking yourselves; ?but what can alpacas do for me??
Well for starters they are great pets, super friendly and will be eating out of your hand in a matter of weeks. They love to munch on grass so are great for keeping your lawn trim. If you are a keen gardener their poo is a fab fertiliser so you?ll be growing giant veg and vibrant flowers in no time. For those that are a dab hand at arts and crafts could even spin their fibre into yarn after the once a year shear, or it can be sent a way for processing.

If you want to know more about these curious camelids take a peak at the rest of our website or contact us to chat ?alpaca?.

You can also find us at all the usual places Facebook, Twitter and Google+ to keep up to date with all things alpaca!

We do welcome visitors we just ask that you call us in advance to make a booking as we are a working farm.

Suris In Focus

As both breeders and lovers of the Suri at Houghton Hall Alpacas we?ve chosen to put the Suri in the spot light explaining what differentiates them from the teddy bear like Huacaya generally associated with the name ?alpaca?. We have aimed to provide some basic information, dispel some common myths about the breed, and (as we are slightly biased) promote how wonderful Suris are to own.

You may know that there are two distinct types of alpaca, the Huacaya and the rarer Suri; the main difference being fleece style. So what does a Suri look like? A good Suri will have long individual pencil locks that feel silky, soft and light to the touch with a rich lustre and sheen. This is due to Suri fleece growing differently to Huacaya or sheep whose fibre comes outwards from the skin, with Suris the fleece grows more like human hair as it hangs straight down the body. They also tend to have slightly larger ears than the Huacaya, other than that they are almost identical anatomically.

Where did the word ?Suri? originate? No one is quite sure where the term for a Suri alpaca came from, but it is thought that the Aymaran and Quechuan peoples of the Altipano (alpacas? native land) used it as a general description for the feathers of the Rhea a native bird. The Rheas feathers are silky and lustrous like the Suris fleece so the similarity may have led to the use of the word to describe this variety of alpaca. The literal translation means straight.

If you?ve ever thought about owning alpacas you may have heard some of these common misconceptions about Suris which we attempt to resolve below;

Suri fleece cannot be processed - Whilst the fleece is difficult to process due to it?s naturally silkier structure, it is not impossible, and many breeders make some incredible products as the fibres naturally hold the sheen and lustre after processing better than Huacaya. In fact we intend to start to sell our own yarn here at Houghton Hall of both our award-winning Suri and Huacaya fleeces.

Suris are not suited to the extremes in UK weather - Well this is easy to dismiss as the temperatures in the UK never reach the severe cold temperatures or searing heat that they would see in their natural habitat of the Andes. We also haven?t noticed that they ever seem to be more negatively affected by the weather than the Huacaya, as long as your herd have access to shelter from the wind and rain you shouldn?t have any issues. Suris can be more vulnerable to the rain simply due to the way their fleece hangs from their body, which leaves their spine more exposed to the elements. However, the Huacayas are just as ready to get out of the rain as the Suris are.

Suris are more flighty and nervous ? This we do not find to be true, in our experience any difference in temperament is generally due to their long fringes obscuring their eye sight. So it is important to regularly trim their fleece around their eyes, particularly if you only shear them every two years.

Suris are more expensive than Huacaya ? Any differences in value in the past could have been due to rarity, but we haven?t ever experienced any significant price increases in comparable animals. As with all alpacas the price varies due to the quality and colour of an animal, along with its purpose e.g. a pet male or a stud male.

The Suri gene is more dominant - This isn?t quite so clear cut as many breeders both here and in the US and Australia are now disputing the commonly agreed fact. Many put it down to the cross breeding of the imported animals in the native lands of Bolivia, Chile and Peru. The idea in basic terms is that to get a Huacaya the alpaca would have to be carrying only Huacaya genes; if one of the Huacayas has a Suri in their ancestry this could be passed to the cria and create a cross breed or if both do, a full Suri. It is a lot more complicated than that, but if you want to read about it in more detail visit here. Now that the Suris and Huacaya are generally being bred exclusively to only others of their breed rogue Suri genes are a much lower occurrence. So the thought is the ones imported originally had more Suri genetics in them and now through selective breeding the balance is evening out. However, time will tell which is correct as there are strong believers on both sides. It is very possible that some Suris in your herd may have a Huacaya ancestor in their bloodline or vice versa.

Why do we breed Suris at Houghton Hall Alpacas? We love the Suri which are often overlooked by newcomers to alpaca breeding, but really nothing beats watching the majesty of the Suris in full fleece running and pronking in the field. So don?t overlook this elegant alpaca breed next time you think about purchasing alpacas.

Looking to breed or own some super Suris? At Houghton Hall Alpacas we have some of the UK and Europe?s finest Suri genetics in our herd. Having sourced some of the best bloodlines available from Australia and New Zealand our herd have improved year after year with a number of our females being unbeaten Supreme Champions; Houghton Royal Duchess and Houghton Mystical Magic. Not to mention that one of our top Suri Stud Sires, Storm of Houghton took home 1st in the Progeny class at every event we attended in 2015.

A Visit to Houghton Hall Alpacas

Liz Wright discovers a world of quality and colour

I think it?s fair to say that Mick and Liz George, owners of Houghton Hall Alpacas are passionate about alpacas ? in fact Liz says that it is ?love me, love my alpacas? as far as they are concerned!

Back in 2001 Mick saw some at an agricultural show and fell in love with them. He started keeping them and his first showing experience (fifth out of five) was enough to give him the show bug. He?s now more used to getting firsts! But when Liz met him eight years ago he had 100 alpacas. Today there are 800 adults and 200 cria expected or now safely unpacked, for the 2015 season. This makes Houghton Hall Alpacas one of the largest alpaca studs in the UK and Europe.

At the British Alpaca Society National Show at Telford the stud took home 19 Firsts (22 if you include Progeny), Seven Reserve Champions, Four Championships, One Best of British and a Supreme Champion in the form of Mystical Magic who is a light fawn Suri aged seventeen months. Mystical Magic has a truly ultra fine fleece which is also dense and carries amazing lustre.

In the Fleece Section, Royal Duchess (a Supreme Champion last year) carried the honours.

Liz and her assistant Emmeline were friendly and pleased to show us their lovely animals. My colleague Karen was entranced by their beauty. But what is the attraction for Liz?
She told me that their aim was to breed the best quality animal they could with the best fleece and capable of having quality offspring. She said that they loved showing and told me that in the show ring the fleece counted for 60% of the marks and conformation for 40%.

How are alpacas shown?

Alpacas are shown just as they are with minimal tidying, no grooming and from paddock conditions. Liz feels that the quality of alpacas has increased a lot in the last eight years especially amongst the white alpacas but the blacks are certainly coming up fast too. The fleeces from the Houghton Hall Alpacas are currently processed in the UK, and for the first time, this year they will be selling the fleece as yarn.
There is nothing wasted in an alpaca fleece ? the prime saddle area is used for garments while the rest of the fleece can be used for a variety of uses including duvets, pillows, carpets and even insulation.
Alpacas everywhere you look!

Houghton Hall is extremely well organised with excellent facilities. Sturdy safe fences divide the alpacas and there are walk ways between the paddocks. Liz says with genuine enthusiasm, ?They are so adorable, so humbling to see them all out here and especially when the babies are playing around?
Karen and I have to agree but Karen is soon off with her camera capturing more of the charm of alpacas.
Liz used to be a school secretary which has come in handy with the paperwork for the stud but now cannot imagine not being outside.

Liz believes that if alpacas are well managed then they will stay very healthy and their management is geared to this belief. It is certainly paying off looking at the happy, healthy animals that surround us. Despite having so many, Liz knows them personally, their names and their histories.

Getting started with alpacas

So what does Liz believe are the best pieces of advice to people thinking of getting started in alpacas?
Liz says what she would really like people to do is to come for a day to Houghton Hall particularly around shearing time if possible to see how they are managed and get to understand the handling. So much can be learnt by looking, learning and getting some practical experience.

You will need good fencing and two to three acres of grassland, enough for 6 alpacas, so that it can be rested and rotated and she advises at least three alpacas to start with. You will also need to protect young trees. They eat hay and haylage and require a mineral supplement ? and you need to find a vet who understands alpacas. It is important to remember that alpacas are shy, gentle inquisitive animals who like to be treated quietly. They should be halter trained which is comparatively easy to achieve especially at weaning. They can mix well with sheep. Alpacas can be good flock guards.

Liz believes that Houghton Hall Alpacas offers a very personal service to buyers, no pressure and takes in to account whether the buyer wants to show to top level or, at the other end of the scale, have neutered males for pets. She says the interest in keeping alpacas continues to rise from all sectors. Membership of the British Alpaca Society will also get alpaca keeping off to a good start.

If you do intend to breed then you must buy the best quality female alpaca you can and use a quality stud male for breeding. If you don?t want to keep a stud male yourself then send your females to a good male. And never stop learning yourself. Go to shows, ask questions, meet breeders and learn, learn and learn!

Why do we all love alpacas?

At Houghton Hall Alpacas we pride ourselves on providing a warm welcome for anyone with a passion for alpacas, be it as a pet or for breeding purposes. We understand that everyone is looking for something different when choosing and owning their alpacas; which is why we recently decided to find out what it was about these curiously fuzzy creatures that made you fall in love with them. As ever our faithful alpaca friends and fans helped us out by answering our short survey.

The main reason highlighted by the questionnaire quite pleasingly was the alpacas? personalities and the joys of actually caring and taking responsibility for them. Here is a selection of the answers we received;

?(Their) individual personalities, together with their looks, their fleece, everything about them apart from poo picking.?

?They are lovely, relaxing animals to work and live around. They bring calm to your life. Intriguing and entertaining. So different from many other animals.?

?Actually caring for them, feeding, husbandry and looking after them on a day to day basis.?

?Looking out of the kitchen window and seeing them all at the gate waiting for breakfast, then going out to feed them and they all run up to say hello. They are all different and each one is lovely!?

?Interaction. Sharing the qualities of their fleece. Taking for walks. Everything.?

?The joy of breeding a better one each generation?

?The friendly smile and welcome that's always received when we go into the field?

Overwhelmingly the largest group who answered the survey classified themselves as alpaca breeders at just under 60%, but we were pleased to also hear from people who were just admirers with the hopes to one day own alpacas at 15%. We also received responses from those who classed themselves as pet owners and smallholders, it was great to have such a diverse group of respondents, so thank you to everyone that answered it.

On a final note this is what our lovely Liz had to say about alpaca ownership; ?It is difficult to pinpoint just one particular thing about alpacas, but seeing them out in the paddocks happily pronking around makes all the hard work worthwhile.?

Want to let us know why you adore the cutest of the camelids? Share it on one of our social pages twitter, facebook or google+.

Don't own alpacas but this article has made you think about getting some? Give Mick and Liz a call to chat 'alpaca' on 01480 461 510 or 07764469132.

Our website is always a working progress. If you can't see what you are looking for, just give us a call, with over 750 alpacas, we are sure to have an Alpackage to suit you. We welcome visits, but please call in advance.

1st June 2015

What a weekend we had at the Royal Bath and West show. It certainly was a tricky first day for us on the Friday as we had tremendous down pours; luckily we were partly inside so we tried to keep our coloured team under cover before their classes, not always successful! But thankfully the sun shone for us all on the Saturday as we had a glorious day, with some equally glorious results!

We took the DOUBLE! Our handsome male Houghton Bellino took Supreme Champion Huacaya and our unbeatable Houghton Mystical Magic has taken Supreme Champion Suri, she also took Best of British.
Our top herd sire?s Houghton Navigator and Suri Storm of Houghton took 1st for Huacaya and Suri 3 Progeny by One Sire respectively, this has been achieved at all shows attended this year. In total we won 2 Supreme Champion, 5 Champion, 4 Reserve Champion, 9 1st Rosettes and 1 Suri Best of British with a number of other placings. Thanks goes to the organisers and everyone that helped us.

Well done Team Houghton!

Bellino?s first cria are also on the ground so we can?t wait to see how they develop, watch this space.

About this breeder:Epoch Alpacas manage a herd on our 40 acre farm in Mid Wales. Our main priority is to ensure the highest welfare for our animals, as we enjoy their wonderful characterful and inquisitive natures.

Our main business is animal sculpture, so ensuring our animals go to the best homes where they will be well cared for is of the utmost importance to us.

About this breeder:

We are a family run alpaca breeder situated in the beautiful Dee Valley in North Wales on the main A5 ten minutes from Llangollen. My interest is in using good genetics to breed to produce an alpaca that has a quality fleece for many years along with good conformation and a good nature. To this end I include animals in my herd that have inherited potential to maintain fleece quality for many years. The dam of our gorgeous stud Angersleigh Harley is Eringa Park Caramela daughter of EP Cambridge Caesar. Caramela?s 11th fleece was still 22 microns. EP Cambridge Spartacus and Samson, Jolimont Commisario and NWT Ltd Ruffo also add to great genetic potential. Lines from Bozedown and Classical also add to the genetics in our breeding lines. I breed for colour though I have whites too as I like to use wool as naturally as possible and a range of lovely colours allows natural variety in the wool.

We are happy to talk Alpacas if you are just beginning and give ongoing help and advice in caring for your new alpacas. All our animals are BAS registered. In order to keep our herd to a manageable size we occasionally have animals for sale.

Latest News:CME Tulaco Centurion did it again in 2007 winning the Show Champion sash at the BAS Spring Show on March 17, 2907. Our new white male Alpaca Stud Jaquinto did well too and was White Male Champion. We expect to see the first Jaquinto cria on the ground in May and Centurion's first babies in the autumn.

Our stunning fawn male CME Tulaco Centurion came home from the first alpaca show of the year, the South of England Spring Show 2006, with the Supreme Champion Huacaya ribbon. This lovely boy is almost two and has just started working. His mother Ashley Grove Flamenco is a bit of a star too with the highest scoring fleece at the 2005 Royal Bath & West Show. His sire is Shanbrooke Accoyo Tulaco, imported and owned by Ron and Dianne Condon of the Shanbrooke Alpaca Stud, whose progeny are bringing home the ribbons in Australia.

MileEnd Gabriella, a fawn junior female, took the Reserve Colour Champion ribbon for fawn females. She is the grand daughter of our multi ribbon winning brown female Mile End Lucille and her sire is CME Benleigh Talisman, a grand son of the famous Australian sire Highlander. Mile End Lucille's 2005 cria CME Poseidon was second in the junior brown male class. He was sired by CME Shanbrooke Distinction.

CME Lysander, sired by CME Aztec Avalanche, took the second place rosette in a hotly contested Intermediate White male class. Our two white youngsters CME Hestia and CME Baccus took third and fourth in the junior white classes. Both youngsters were sired by CME Kurrawa Micah. The judge commented on their excellent conformation, typey heads, good bone and the exceptionally long staple length of their fleeces.

Congratulations to Di Davies of Alpha Alpacas whose black male, sired by our stud male CME Wyterrica Patrick, on the black Colour Championship ribbon at the South of England Show 2006.

We're still closed due to the COVid-19 lockdown but hoping to RE-OPEN in mid-July for alpaca trekking.

We have some cria (baby alpacas) born in May which we hope to have on view!

We've had to make the difficult decision to increase our prices for alpaca trekking for the first time in six years due to losses this summer and to ensure that our business remains viable.

We will be making an increase of £5 and charging adults £25 and children £15 when we re-open and will be taking out smaller groups than usual with social distancing measures in place.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Alpaca trekking has been fully booked throughout the summer of 2018 and trekkers have coped very well with the building site! Yes - we were granted planning permission in the spring to build a house here at the farm and the roof will be on by October/November ready for the onset of winter.

Summer 2014 has been busy with exports to Italy, Holland and Belgium. Alpaca Trekking is now a regular event adding another dimension to our farm, although we have sold a few trekkers! We'll be busy next spring training up this year's cria.

The Prime Minister made an appearance at this year's North Devon Show, but was more interested in Jacob sheep than alpacas!

Still, it was worth the early start to the day for Bearhouse Alpacas, as we came away with five First Prizes, a Reserve Champion rosette and one second prize. We took six alpacas to the show and the results were as follows:

Bearhouse Kiara - 1st Prize - Brown Junior Female
Bearhouse Valentino - 1st Prize and Reserve Champion - Brown Senior Male
Bearhouse Daisy - 1st Prize - Fawn Intermediate Female
Bearhouse Herodotus - 1st Prize - Fawn Intermediate Male
Dreamfield King Louis - 1st Prize - White Adult Male
Bearhouse Roxy - 2nd Prize - White Intermediate Female

The Judge was Nick Harrington-Smith.

We're taking a rest from showing for this year now, apart from our local fair in Sidbury, but are very pleased with our 2013 results!


A good day on Thursday at our local show - The Honiton & District Agricultural Show. We came away with two first prizes - one for Bearhouse Valentino, our dark brown stud male and another 1st Prize for Bearhouse Kiara in the junior brown female class, a third for Dreamfield King Louis, our white stud male in the adult white class and fourths for Bearhouse Daisy in the Intermediate Fawn Female Class and Bearhouse Roxy in the Intermediate White Female Class. Judge was Catherine Lloyd from EP Cambridge Alpaca Stud.


This year?s Devon County Show attracted record numbers of people with sunshine throughout the three days, only a few spots of rain and almost a heat wave on the Saturday!

The alpacas were a very popular attraction with most of the top breeders from the South West showing their huacaya and suri alpacas. Many of these animals were fully fleeced for the show and will be pleased to be shorn as soon as possible now that some good weather has arrived. Shearing now will give enough time for some re-growth ready for the summer shows.

Sidbury based Bearhouse Alpacas did well with their small but select show team, winning a first prize with Bearhouse Kiara in the Junior Brown Female Huacaya class, a second prize for Bearhouse Aphrodite in the Intermediate Black Female Huacaya class, a second prize for Bearhouse Daisy in the Intermediate Fawn Female class and a second for Bearhouse Herodotus in the Junior Male Light Fawn class. All of these animals will now be up for sale on their website:

After five years of breeding Bearhouse female alpacas with award winning stud males, the success of the long term breeding programme is undeniable in 2011.

This year has been an extremely pleasing year at the three shows where we exhibited our animals: The Devon County Show, The North Devon Show and The Honiton Show.
Bearhouse Alpacas won the ?Best Small Breeder? award at the Devon County Show in May, with a 1st, a 2nd and two 3rd prizes and was then awarded three 1st prizes and three Reserve Champion rosettes, plus a 2nd and 3rd prize at the North Devon Show in August.

The string of successes culminated in two year old Bearhouse Valentino (sired by solid black ? Classical Ikon) winning 1st prize in the adult black male class and then overall ?Champion Black Male Huacaya? at the 121st Honiton and District Agricultural Show, billed as the largest one day agricultural show in England. Bearhouse Alpacas also won another 1st, two 2nds and a 3rd prize at the Show.

The best in agriculture was on display at the Honiton Show, with local farmers and breeders showcasing their sheep, cattle, poultry as well as alpacas, to crowds of more than 18,000.

Bearhouse Valentino is now working at stud at Bearhouse Farm - his first cria are due Autumn 2012.

About this breeder:About Inca Alpaca

Tim Hey established Inca Alpaca in order to help preserve and improve coloured alpaca. This passion for black alpaca offers new owners and breeders an opportunity to obtain high quality bloodstock in order to join in the quest.

The last one hundred and fifty years have seen the majority of alpaca breeders in Peru selectively breed towards white and fawn causing the numbers of black alpacas to fall to a very low level and the quality of the fibre stand still. Breeding high quality coloured alpacas in particular black is a challenge that we have taken up and are passionate about. Through the use of careful breeding decisions and strategies developed in Australia we strive to breed black alpaca to the quality now seen in the best white stock.

Recently Tim's family have exported many of their black alpacas to England to form the core of Inca Alpaca. Also a small group of investors has allowed Inca Alpaca to import extremely high quality black bloodstock form Australia. These imported females have formed the top end of Inca Alpaca's plantel herd.

Inca Alpaca takes great pride in offering clients support and advice from 25 years alpaca farming experience in Australia and the UK. We have taken great care in the selection of our bloodstock to ensure strong uniform genetic lines that will impart desirable characteristics to the progeny. This in turn will ensure our long-term success and that of my clients through minimising breeding risks and developing the sale of high priced bloodstock and fibre domestically and into the ever growing European market.


I have a vision that is shared by many breeders of black alpacas around the world. That vision is to one day breed and maintain a herd of black huacaya and suri alpacas that clip a fleece to the same weight and quality equal to the best white alpacas now found in the UK. By learning from the research and experience in the merino, angora and alpaca industry in Australia and North America I can reduce incorrect breeding decisions and begin to understand the link between nutrition, physiology and fibre. My own experience tells me that my goal is obtainable if I apply all that I have learnt and use males that consistently produce uniform progeny that carry the traits I desire and use newly developed breeding strategies that that are proven to improve the herd?s clip in leaps and bounds while keeping the black colour.

About Tim Hey

I grew up on an Alpaca farm in Tasmania Australia and was involved with many aspects of my families? herd called Van Diemen Alpacas. At the age of 18 I attended the University of Tasmania and graduated three years later with a science degree in Aquaculture. I then worked in a technical and scientific role for the largest Atlantic salmon producer in Australia, while still being heavily involved with the parents? herd and the Tasmanian region of the Australian Alpaca Association. A position with Alpacas of Wessex temped me to England where have enjoyed working with excellent stock and a professional team. At Alpacas of Wessex I still enjoy being part of the team and working with them to take the alpaca industry forward. I have been to Peru and Australia many times on behalf of Alpacas of Wessex, ABQ Alpacas and Inca Alpaca selecting alpaca for import into Europe. I had the privilege of selecting with a team of professionals including Geoff Scott, Monyka Portecarrero and John Gaye where we have selected some of the top alpacas ever to enter Europe. These alpacas included Wessex Rural Alianza Wiracocha, Wessex Adonica and Wessex Rural Alianza Don Pepe.


Located in the South of England on the Dorset Wiltshire border, Inca Alpaca offers interested potential people and existing breeders an ideal opportunity to visit, view stock and learn more about this exciting and new rural enterprise. We are also conveniently located for the International visitor as we are only 90 minutes from London?s Heathrow Airport.
Latest News:Seed Stock Arrives From Australia

Our stud stock from Australia finally arrived from Australia last weekend ending a nervous wait. This selection has been a culmination of twelve months works by and of course us here at Inca Alpaca.

The females were selected using stringent criteria based on our knowledge of the quality of the best black huacayas in Australia in 2005. We needed to increase our number of females that had strong frames, great fineness in the fleece while also carrying the other fibre characteristics that are found in good quality whites. We need females in the UK that will breed exceptional cria every time and with great uniformity.

This import is very exciting for us because it carries some of the best black genetics found and proven in Australia to date. This group of females are totally unrelated to 99 percent of black huacayas in Europe, giving us potential to use males born from these females and improve the industry.

Nine of these girls have retained their pregnancy to Cedar House Amar, a Champion Black sire bred by Cedar Huse Alpaca Stud now residing in NZ with Sherlin Alpacas. This genetic imput by Amar will help secure Inca Alpaca's future in the industry and push our productivity of black fibre forward.

Inspection of these females and all the stock at Inca Alpaca is most welcome.

Alpacas at Wealden is located in 'Winnie the Pooh' country, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The farm stands on a hill overlooking the neighbouring valleys.

Alpacas first came to the farm in late 2006 - 6 beautiful, pregnant Huacaya and Suris. The girls were chosen for their quality, colour and character!

There are now more than 80 Huacayas and Suris, of various colours, on the farm - made up of a mix of pets, stud males, maidens, pregnant females and cria (depending on the time of year).

Stud males are individually selected for each female to ensure improved genetics and quality to each new generation.

Alpacas at Wealden have been showing their alpacas annually at the local, national and international shows since 2008 and have achieved great success every year, winning colour championships (both in fleece and halter classes) and multiple best suri awards.

Whether you are looking for alpacas to improve the genetics and quality of your existing herd, for your initial alpacas to start your own breeding programme, for your own fibre production, as protectors for sheep and poultry, as companions, or simply want these fabulous animals to wonder at and adore, make an appointment to visit Alpacas at Wealden - you will find your own special alpaca!

Females are available for sale from under £1,000.
Stud males from £1,200.
Pets from £500.

We have been keeping and breeding alpacas since 1998 and during that time we have seen the industry develop and the quality of alpacas raise dramatically as both the quality of available breeding stock and knowledge of these wonderful animals has progressed.

We have always been keen to breed the best quality, healthiest and happiest of alpacas. We have shown successfully ever since shows began in the UK.

About this breeder:We have been enjoying life with our alpacas for over 15 years now. From the beginning, we have seen them as part of our farm family and their health and welfare has been our first aim. Along with the chickens and dogs, our vet once commented that it was animal paradise! Although not one of the big breeders, we have enjoyed participating in alpacas shows near us and had success! From the early days we have carefully selected outside studs to improve our herd, so our herd has the benefit of some of the best genetics. Over the last years we have bought in studs to join our herd, with all of them having champion fathers: Classical Ajax II (father CME Tulaco Centurion), Westways Testament (father Bozedown Comet II) and Classical Caspian (father Jaquinto of Alpaca Stud). We look forward each year to our latest cria to see how the breeding program has improved their fleeces, showing the qualities of fineness, character and staple length. We have been pleased with our placing at fleece shows and the fleece is used for our woven fibre projects.
We halter train all our alpacas from 6 months, which not only being enjoyable for us, makes all handling easier, prepares them for showing or for eventual walking ventures with a new owner. Protection from harsh weather, biosecurity and calm, easy alpaca handling was built into the farm design. Manure is removed from paddocks and composted; alpacas have all vaccinations and frequent observation and condition, mouth and nail checks. Our oldest retired female is now 20 and still heads in to get her fair share of the daily specialist camelid feed. Lastly, the names! Family geology books usefully list rocks from white to black and all the colours and variations in between. And you can usually make a short name from each rock name for every day use. So we have Watership Albite (Albie-a white rock) and Watership Magnetite (Maggie-a black rock). Well, it gives us an interesting pastime each spring!
If you are wondering if alpacas are right for you, please feel welcome to visit and we can share with you our over 15 years of experience. We provide free delivery for up to 100 miles. Vet certificates can be provided if required.

Alpaca activities are also part of our range. We offer alpaca adventures and through the Summer group visits including lunch or afternoon tea. Intro workshops designed specifically for your requirements are also part of the range.

About this breeder:We live in a small village in Lincolnshire near the Lincs, Notts, Leics borders close to the A1 and A46.

In 2005 we took our first steps into alpaca farming.We, like many farmers were looking for something to diversify into, something that both ourselves and our children would find interesting and enjoy and we have really found that.
On the first day of the school holidays, 4 beautiful huacaya alpaca girls, Mississippi Moonlight, Luminaria, Coco Chanel and Skylark were delivered, one each. The JandJ Alpaca herd was born using the children's initials. Alpacas are addictive and within a year we decided to specialise in coloured alpacas and bought 8 black pregnant girls.
We now have a herd of 90 beautiful alpacas of all colours, all ages. All our alpacas are registered with the British Alpaca Society (BAS) and are micro chipped for identification and security & most of our youngsters are halter trained.
Not all our alpacas for sale are listed on Alpacaseller please phone for an up to date list.

About this breeder:Your alpacas should be exactly what you want, and we will do our very best to help you find the alpacas of your dreams.

Barnacre Alpacas was founded in February 2007 after three years research into these enchanting animals. Many hours of studying and farm visits bought us to the conclusion that we wanted to pursue the alpaca dream. With no farming background the learning curve has been very steep, we started with 3 pregnant females and 2 acres of land. Our herd has grown with imports, some great alpacas from around the UK and over 300 births.

To continue our alpaca dream, we sold up in 2011 and then bought a 220 acre Northumbrian hill where we built our new house and purpose built alpaca buildings called Liberty Hill Farm. It wasn't easy, to begin with the caravan we were living in rolled down the hill and exploded!

In July 2017 we moved again. This time to the beautiful Tyne Valley and the idyllic Turpin's Hill Farm. We're just 2 mins off the A69 and 10 miles West of Newcastle - but it feels like we're in the middle of nowhere! We have 2 holiday cottage on the farm that you can stay at for the best alpaca experience ever!

Each of our alpacas is known by name and their friendly individual personalities are recognised. We are using their magnificent fleece to produce a variety of quality handcrafted products, made by Debbie, her mum and two friends.

We offer full support, training courses, alpaca blog, elite genetics stud services and online shop.

Visitors are welcome, by appointment please. Debbie and Paul Rippon.

Also, 1st junior brown with Barnacre Meketaten with an amazing score of 75.5 beating many white elite fleeces. Barnacre Casiphia from our elite stud, Legend of Spartacus was awarded 2nd junior white in a huge class of 25 achieving a cracking score of 80.5!

Latest News:!989 - 2014: 25 Years Breeding Champions

At the first Alpaca Show of the year, the prestigious BAS National Show, on March 15/16 2014,
Bozedown Alpacas was awarded the following Champions:

Champion Brown Female
Champion Fawn Male
Champion White Female
Res. Champion White Male

Champion Brpwn Male
Champion Fawn Male
Res. Champion White Male

Report on the Alpaca Classic Event and Auction September 2013

This event was held for a second year at Bozedown Farm in South Oxfordshire. It was a typical September day with sunshine and showers, and more than 100 breeders attended.

The Seminars
Camelid Referral Vet. Claire Whitehead gave 2 enlightening and brand new presentations:
1. The Practicalities and Implications of ET and AI in Alpacas.
2. The top 4 causes of Cria Mortality
These were very well received and gave breeders lots of ideas and information on these important topics.

Fleece Guru Cheryl Gehly, a leading fleece judge and judge tutor in the USA:
1. ?Crimp and Lock Style in Perspective?.
Cheryl?s main message being that fineness, density and uniformity are the most important, with crimp and lock structure being secondary traits, which are also a good indicator of follicular structure beneath the skin. Alpaca judges assess fineness by determining an average micron count. They also look for uniformity within the fleece, looking for overall consistency in micron, length and colour; and density, which indicates the number of follicles per square unit of skin. Fleece judges can make accurate density assessments by evaluating the solidity of individual groups of staples (huacaya) and locks (suri).
2. ?The Meaning of Micron?.
A fun and practical session in which participants learned to assess micron, working in pairs. The amount of variation in micron (SD) needs to be lowered through breeding, in order to reduce the ?itch? factor in the finished product. 3. ?Evaluating Fleece and Gaining a Full Perspective?.
Another practical session, this time in groups of 6 - 8, each with a whole fleece to evaluate. We were assessing micron, uniformity, density and brightness, and we all had lots of fun as this developed into a competition between the groups as to who had the overall ?winning? fleece. Everyone was so engrossed in this activity that it carried on past the 2pm estimated finish until after 5 pm.

The multi talented Brett Kaysen, complete with stetson, from Colorado State University, also gave 2 lectures in his own inimitable and engaging style:
1. ?Alpacas Worldwide - an Independent Perspective? and
2. ?Auctions - Getting the most out of them as a buyer?

Classic Auction
The highest prices achieved on the day were 9,500 guineas for Alpaca Stud Vanessa, and 9,500 guineas and 9000 guineas for the 2 female Breeders Selection lots, which gave the successful bidders the almost impossible task to select from our entire 2012 crop of fantastic females. Barbara Hetherington of Beck Brow alpacas was the successful bidder for the Bozedown female, and was thrilled to be able to select an outstanding brown female Bozedown Campari for her colour breeding programme, thus locking into 2 impeccable Bozedown bloodlines. Through her Grandsire Futurity Huacaya Champion Sire Bozedown Talisman, and her Grandsire Bozedown Thunder, who also sired Champion blacks Boz Oberon and Boz Kazzan,
Among the other Blood stock sold at the auction were Lot 6 and Lot 21 both went to Popham Alpacas, Lot 3 C-S Alpacas, Lot 17 to The Alpaca Farm and Lot 9, a fantastic pair of grey females, to the Gunther family in Belgium. All of these World Class pedigree females have great potential and we look forward to hearing news of some wonderful future progeny. Many congratulations to all of these discerning breeders.

Charity funds raised
There had been recent very bad news from the Puno region of Peru, where more than 25,000 animals had perished in freak severe snowstorms, leaving the subsistence herders there destitute. So at the end of the auction, Bozedown Alpacas and The Alpaca Stud each auctioned an élite Stud Service, which raised £3,500 to buy 238 good quality alpaca blankets. Alonso Burgos of Grupo Inca arranged this for us with no administration costs, and with the help of the local municipal government, the neediest herders were each given 2 of the blankets. It?s hard to describe the severity of the cold on the altiplano, where only 40 nights in the year are frost-free, and the night-time temperatures drop to minus 25 degrees on the majority of nights. The animals depend for their drinking water on above freezing temperatures, and when this does not happen they can die of thirst as well as hunger when the snow does not melt from their grazing, as there is no way of collecting and storing winter fodder as we do in the UK. Our very grateful thanks to the winning bidders Philippa Wills of Great House Alpacas and Lulu Oliver of Lusi Alpacas, who made this possible.

The evening kicked off with a live band playing 60?s and 70?s music in the barn, where there was also a free bar, and there was good food and a warm welcome from the big heaters in the marquee. Even so, the keen delegates turned out in force ready for the Sunday morning presentations. A memorable weekend!

Diary Date
The Third Annual Alpaca Classic Event and Seminars will be held on 6th and 7th September 2014. Brett and Cheryl will both be back to give further Seminars and share more fascinating insights and gems with us. Some of the top breeding from both Bozedown Alpacas and The Alpaca Stud will again be offered for auction - an unmissable opportunity to gain access to genetic developments that have taken many generations to achieve.

About this breeder:I'm Elaine Moggridge and I started Garsons Field Alpacas in 2006 when I took early retirement from a long career as a primary school teacher but wasn't ready to give up nurturing!

My husband Garry and I had the opportunity to buy Garsons Field, the land adjacent to our house in 1994. After letting it to local farmers for cattle and sheep grazing we became more and more drawn to the idea of keeping our own animals one day.

Since our children were small, we have always had dogs, rabbits, chickens (and occasionally ducks) and although wanting to keep livestock, we didn?t want anything we?d have to take to market. Alpacas seemed the obvious choice!

After my final day at school we visited various alpaca breeders, who were always very enthusiastic and encouraging.

We started with two pregnant females, one potential stud male and two wethers, chosen purely by their looks (not a wise move).

We now have a herd of sixteen very healthy and happy alpacas, six of our eight females are due to birth in the summer. They are all pets and hand fed twice everyday. Luckily, we have enough space to be able to rotate the paddocks and produce our own hay.

Address:Hawthorn Farm

About this breeder: We are a husband and wife team who live in the beautiful Surrey countryside in the peaceful village of Ripley, along with our daughter, two dogs and our stunning herd of 26 Huacaya alpacas.

Our alpaca journey started in 2017 when we got up close with alpacas for the first time and immediately fell in love with their quirky faces, graceful movements and their big dark eyes! This kickstarted our passion for these beautiful animals and we immediately set on hatching a plan to include alpacas in our lives. After a lot of research, we made the decision to specialise in black alpacas, with a goal of creating a herd of carefully selective pedigrees. We are passionate about producing high quality alpacas who strive in colour, conformation and fibre quality. In 2018 we purchased 11 pregnant females from Inca Alpaca, and since then we have had 15 crias born to Yana Alpacas. We have maintained our strong focus on quality with every single animal and we believe our alpacas are a reflection of this. Going forward our plan is to develop our breeding programme and continue improving the genetics of our herd year on year.

We are members of the British Alpaca Society (BAS) and each one of our animals are registered with the BAS, micro chipped and fully vaccinated. When looking to purchase a herd of breeding alpaca for your farm, it is essential to buy good quality animals, to ensure a good return on your investment. They will live happily with horses, sheep or goats and make very good protectors from foxes.

About this breeder:We are a small breeder of Huacaya alpacas in West Sussex. We started in 2005 with three pregnant females and two wethers. We now own a herd of just under 40 alpacas in various colours. In 2011 we had the first three crias from our own stud male Hurst Montezuma. Our aim is to breed good quality animals with sound conformation and dense, soft fleece. We have gained experience through attending workshops, courses and every day hands on experience with these beautiful animals.
Our farm bred stud males Hurst Montezuma and Hurst Ernesto have produced some beautiful crias in the last few years.

We had four crias in summer 2013 from Hurst Napoleon, son of Dovecote Jacquinto of Alpaca Stud ( two males and two females.)
We are planning to reduce our herd and have therefore some good deals available.

We also sell 100% pure Alpaca yarn produced from the fleeces of our own herd.

Breeder/Farm Name:Artwork Alpacas
Herd Size:80
Contact Name:Ken Freivokh
Telephone Number:07785 258740
Nearest Town:Rogate
Address:Mills Farm House
About this breeder:Artwork Alpacas are lifestyle breeders. Having purchased some of the top females in the UK, Ken & Liz secured a share in some of the World's top herd sires, personally chosen by International Judge Nick Harrington-Smith from the World famous Snowmass ranch in Idaho, US. The selection and importation process took almost two years, and resulted in the most amazing collection of top studs, jointly owned with top alpaca breeders Alpaca Stud, Meon Valley Alpacas and Pure Alpacas (brown, fawn, light and white - seven amazing specimens) and with Alpaca Stud and Merrifield Alpacas (two stunning black males)
The current herd includes three generations successively mated to such champion studs. This process has not only achieved the desired fleece characteristics and a dramatic reduction in the micron fineness, but further allowed Artwork Alpacas to achieve the desired optimisation of unique traits, such as perfect conformation, strong frame, short muzzle, uniform fleece distribution.
It is always difficult to select any of our alpacas to place on a ?for sale? list but, equally, we believe it is important that we limit the numbers in our herd, such that we can continue to offer the close and personal care, and we continue to target improvements to raise the overall standard and reinforce the traits which make Artwork Alpacas so special.
Therefore, the alpacas which we reluctantly selected are not on the list because they are in any way inferior; in many cases they are our top animals, but decisions must be taken bearing in mind the stud males available to us.
We are also selectively offering the services of such top Snowmass studs.
