22 Aug 2010 - Alpha Centauri Everleigh wins Champion Roan Female at Victorian Colourbration
Our recent trip to Bendigo for the VIC Colourbration was a very enjoyable experience. The Victorians certainly know how to put on a show. We were very excited to have Everleigh win the Championship for Roan Female. We also won first place in the Med/Dark Fawn Male with Alpha Centauri Berenger. This is his second 1st placing in as many shows. Alpha Centauri Delainey and Alpha Centauri Colacho were awarded second place in the Intermediate Female White and Junior Male White classes.
07 Aug 2010 - Central Western Region Annual Show
What started out as a terrible day with cold and miserable weather turned out to be a great show day for us. We took two floats and 12 animals to Bathurst and we were fortunate enough to have had every alpaca awarded a ribbon on the day. Cannon was awarded Champion Mature Male and Delainey, Everleigh and Tallon were all awarded Reserve Champion in their age classes. All up a great day with 1 x Championship, 3 x Reserve Championships, 5 x 1st, 5 x 2nd, 1 x 3rd and 1 x 4th placings.
25 July 2010 - The new shed
The concrete is down for the new shed. The shed has arrived (albeit a week late) and we are now preparing for the construction phase. It will be great to have the new shed up on the new property ready for shearing and husbandry in October. Fencing of holding and birthing paddocks is proceeding according to plan and hopefully we are on schedule for completion prior to the start of October.
