Alpacas are thriving at Burwash Manor
The alpacas are settling into their new green fields really well and Tracy is getting used to looking after them again. The alpacas are also getting used to Tracy again, which is good! The alpacas are happy to come eat apples out of your hand again and they were all very curious when we brought a group of 12 over to the field a couple of weeks ago. Some behaved better than other (we won’t be mentioning any names, will we, Inca?) but all in all they did a decent job.
These are all the girls in their field, and behind the trees at the bottom of their field are the boys. When we were there the boys were staring longingly in the direction of the girls. We’ll just have to hope they won’t be able to jump Tracy’s fences!
The new addition to the herd is Bollinger. As Hero, one of Tracy’s best boys were related to most of the females he could not be used as a stud male for Tracy’s herd, so she swapped him with another breeder in a similar situation and got Bolly in return. A fabulous boy with really dense and fine fleece, we can’t wait to see what creas will come of this next year!
