Toft Alpaca Stud and Toft Alpaca Shop enjoyed a great weekend in Stoneleigh, Warwickshire at the National Alpaca Show 2011. We came back winners in every sense. The alpacas did us proud and Rob and Shirley can now add 1st prize Huacaya Junior Male Black for Ison, 1st prize Huacaya Junior Female Fawn and Junior Champion for Nashira plus three third place rosettes to their show prize board.
As for the shop it was great to meet old and new alpaca friends and arrange with some the drop off of lots more lovely UK bred alpaca fleeces to make our gorgeous new season yarns. Adventure dog Harvey had a whale of a time, even 'manning' the stand by himself for a while - although a lack of opposable thumbs did hinder card sales somewhat.
In the office we're all very excited about the arrival of two new puppies whom Kerry and Rob are currently on a road trip to collect. Tomorrow at Toft = Bedlam! Can't wait!
