It will all of course all depend on government guidelines so we will let you know if and when we feel we can make plans to put on the shows
In the meantime we are running a “lockdown alpaca” photo competition with prizes so send Deborah or Jacki your best pictures before Easter on the subject and we will have an independent judge pick a winner and runner up to be announced at the AGM

Husbandry & Welfare
Alpacas need shelter from the elements, shearing annually in late spring or early summer, a low protein high mineral diet, toes trimming every couple of months and checking at least once a day. Alpacas are easy to halter train once weaned.
Fibre & Products
Alpacas were bred by the Inca’s of Peru for their wonderfully soft and warm fibre. This cashmere-like fleece was once reserved for Incan royalty and is now enjoyed by spinners and weavers everywhere.
If you are interested in buying alpacas as pets or indeed as a business, there are shows held UK wide to attend for the alpaca experience.
Alpaca trekking is great way to experience the outdoors, whilst also enjoying some chill time with these fantastic animals.
