It has been a while since we updated our news.
The last year has been quite uneventful, no shows for Surico and the visit to Germany and UK cancelled earlier in the year.
However things still happen on the farm regardless of world events. In keeping with our down scaling of suri numbers we had just 10 births for the year. They have all been weaned and are in the process of halter training. Maybe we will attend a couple of shows in 2021, it is always good to catch up with fellow breeders and swap stories of favourite cria and introducing new studs to the breeding programme.
2020 saw us introduce several new boys to our stable of stud males and we are expecting cria from them in the early part of the year.
Surico Tasman is a favourite with his friendly nature. His sire is Mr B and dam is Surico Venus.
Surico Atlas is another Mr B son out of Suric Magritte, his fleece is superb.
Surico Dalton also joined the stud boys, he has a smaller frame but exquisit fleece, his sire Surico Burton now residing in Australia and his dam, Surico Trinkett one of the best fleeces Surico ever produced.
Surico Pizazz, made it to stud status at the age of just 2 years so we are expecting good things from him too wth his sire Surico Tangier and dam Surico Rosse a winning combination of genetics.
We farewelled Surico Bolero and Surico Lorient to the UK to join Darksky Alpacas, Bolero left us 3 fantastic male cria to carry his legacy forward . Unfortunately Lorient was to young to leave us any progeny before he left, but we are sure he will do a good job in the UK.
Our 2 females destined for Germany missed the plane, Surico Pascale who was 2018 National Supreme was too far on, in her pregnancy to safely travel. She will soon have her cria and be mated again with Surico Twinkles who will join her to travel to Germany later in 2021.
Late March and Early April has Sue traveling in the UK to visit the BAS National Show and breeders in that part of the world.
At the BAS National Show she had the pleasure of watching Hought Hall Hot Toddy (Pictured below) win the Supreme Suri award. Congratulations to Houghton Hall!
Hot Toddy is sired by Surico Trovatore.
