Alpaca & Muscovy

You are never too old to learn

I am a great believer in reading your chosen subject and very much hands on experience – those of you attending husbandry courses and Alpaca experiences find that out very quickly!

So it is little surprise that I attended a Wensleydale Society meeting recently and witnessed how other breeders work alongside these magnificent quadrupeds.

travelling through parts of the Cotswolds I have never seen, it was a great experience and I learnt a lot.

I have to say they are rather um “selective” and like their ewe nuts to be a certain size… leaving the large ones behind… rather interesting because the large nuts were the top brand ones and the smaller the cheaper!
