Our boys are constantly in demand and are often sold as soon as they are weaned but we have a few boys who live in 2 paddocks, one for the mature studs and one for the younger males and the whethers.
Lucien is a fabulous white stud male who we purchased from Fowberry in 2017 who owned him jointly with Herts Alpacas. He has a string of show wins detailed below and seems to know that he’s a bit special as he expects top treatment and complains if anyone is fed or haltered before he is. He doesn’t like his toe nails being cut but we found that if we feed him while we’re cutting the distraction stops him getting uppity!

Rushmere Imperator had to be nicknamed ‘the Imp’ as he was so playful when he was little but now we call him Perry. He was born the 26th May 2015 and grew well, receiving some first prizes as a junior and still doing well in an increasingly competitive black field. His show results are detailed below. He is the offspring of Jessamine Hustle and the very famous and high quality Lilleyfield Jack of Spades. He’s very laid back in character and very friendly. He cuaght on early that if he comes up to use after the main food goes down he may be lucky with an extra treat.
As one might expect from the pairing of two black alpacas,Perry is bay black with very fine fleece. We will be seeing his first cria on the ground in 2019

Gregorius is our superb grey stud who has always been rather precocious and has oodles of attitude. He and Lucien are still discussing who should be herd leader but they get on OK. He was born in 2013 and is the offspring of Garyeanna Treacle and the famous Alpaca Stud Nyetimber and he has certainly inherited many of his sire’s characteristics.
He has a string of excellent show results as detailed below.

Lunar, or Sudell Apaloosa Lunar joined us in 2017 and has turned out be quite a star. His 3rd fleece was 16 micron and he’s maintained that into his 4th fleece. He gave our Genie a lovely brown male, Leonardo, when we mated him for the first time last year. His colouring is exactly the same as Clara so we mated him with her last year so we’ll see what that delivers!
He is quite a docile and easy to handle character, although he stands up for himself with the other studs.
Darius is our oldest male, born in July 2010, the son of Alborada Claudia, our prize winning grey female and Bozedown The Chief. He had quite an interesting start as only 1 leg appeared. Thankfully Jo had attended several lectures on birthing alpacas which explained what could go wrong so she pushed him back into his Mum and armed with elbow length plastic gloves and some obstetric lubricant she set about looking for the other leg inside. The vet arrived to lend a hand and Darius was delivered without any further problems.
He did well in shows and we used him as a stud for several years but he developed a tooth abscess which was rather presistant and we also bred Gregorius who was even better quality so we have had Darius neutered and he acts as uncle to our weanlings
Florian was born in 2012 and is the offspring of Garyeanna Jade and a stud who sadly died several years ago, Wessex Jay,. He is a really beautiful animal but not quite as good as our other white studs so we have had him neutered. He was part of a group of pet males who went to live at a stables but the owner decided to sell the paddock he lived in so he came back to us. He spends his time with our females and can sometimes forget he’s been neutered but the girls soon put him in his place!
