With the largest number of alpacas competing for many years and a Peruvian judge, we were very pleased to come home with Best Female Black Suri, and Best Male Black Suri in the show, then to top it off, Adagio 2 was awarded Suri Royal Colour - Black of the Royal Melbourne Show, 2019!

Not bad, when you consider our small stud was competing against the largest specialist Suri breeders in Australia!


LOCKSLEY 'S LATEST PHOTOSHOOT


 

Our extremely placid Locksley, now almost 15, was invited as a surprise visitor to an international seminar at the Cape Schank RACV Resort. He was invited along to provide photo opportunities promoting Somersby Ciders, and there he stood, alert and interested in all that was going on around him, while cameras flashed, and scores of selfies were taken.


GRADUATION PHOTOSHOOT WITH OUR ALPACAS


 

These lovely students from Melbourne University chose to take their pre-graduation photos on our farm with our alpacas.


OUR CHEEKY SURI CRIAS ARE NOW ALMOST 6 MONTHS OLD


 

Sequel and Celeste are growing into beautiful young suris. We are looking forward to seeing them in the Showring later in the year.


OUR LITTLE STORM GIRL IS GROWING UP


 

A lovely rich, lustrous brown, Storm Girl is a stand-out in the paddock. She has a good deal of attitude, and although the youngest in the group, is the outright leader in the daily "pronks" through the trees at sunset.
