Since then Sue and I have been waiting for the rain to clear and the sun to shine when we have both been at home. This evening at 6pm our moment arrived. Qjori was haltered (he is the gentlest, calmest, most wonderful alpaca) and the trusty Canon was unleashed in the top paddock.
Our boy posed like the Champion that he is. He is simply beautiful (in a manly sort of way you understand!)
As I have said we could not be more happy with Qjori. His breeders, Bob and Diane Hey, way downunder in Tasmania, can and should, be very proud of him.
He will, I have no doubt, go on to be a superstar here in the UK.
Ok. Have I gone on enough yet? No? I could go on about him all day if you like?
Sadly I have chores to do as I am away for the weekend.
Before his supersoft fleece was removed Tim and I took a few snaps.
I think you will agree he looks pretty damn good to me!
