First up is the magnificent Poppy who has won three rosettes for us. She is the most gorgeous brown girl with a black face. She is, in my opinion a beautiful alpaca. Her sire is the legend that is ATA Cambridge Centurion, her mother is our spit fountain Bobby, a Mateus girl.
Second up is Amelie, daughter of our beloved Lily (Shafts Dream) and another Centurion daughter. 'Millie' is so neat and compact and has the most beautiful coloured fleece. She took two rosettes for us this year and we really are looking forward to seeing her progeny when it comes.
Thirdly I just love the look of our fawn girl Patou Fifi. Fifi is the friendliest alpaca in the herd and is quite content to stand there eating whilst you rummage through her soft dense fleece. She has the most amazing coverage and is a serial 'nose nuzzler'. Fifi is a Wiracocha's Dream girl and we also own her mother Dee who is a real favourite.
And last but by no means least, the big boy himself, Lillyfield Jack of Spades of Inca. Jack is the only animal of the five not owned by us. He is owned by Tim hey at Inca Alpaca but we are so impressed with him that he will figure largely in our breeding programme over the next couple of years. An absolutely magnificent looking animal. Big, strong, proud and just great to look at from any angle.
So there you have it, my vision of how I would like the mighty Patou herd to look.
