More Elite Alpaca Fleece Shots

Posted By On May 2013 | 5 Comments

What gorgeous weather on a bank holiday weekend too, wonders will never cease. Not to miss out on a photo opportunity I hot footed it out to the alpaca paddocks camera in hand.

Time to practice fleece shots on the boys 🙂

From the results, I’m not sure I’m getting any better at it, but at least more of them were in focus this time and there were a lot less pictures of the floor, the sky and my manky looking hands 🙂

Sorry there not perfectly parted etc.. but the boys were getting hot and sweaty and so they were taken really quick so as not to upset them to much.

Taffy Bear and Hamilton are two boys who just didn’t quite make the grade and are now wether’s. It’s such a shame as both have beautiful fleece’s but in my opinion only the very best should go on to make stud males.

The next two boys Angelo and Marcus, both sired by EP Cambridge Sampson,  are the lucky ones who have made the grade and who after shearing will start work as stud males.

I bet your thinking Angel that’s a funny name for a boy, so sorry for any confusion.  Angel is definately a girl, her pictures were taken the other day, with some of the other girls.  I forgot to upload Angels and so thought I would sneak her in on the end as both Bright Spark and Angel are sired by Imposition.

    Amazing fleece shots Donna, the problem with having elite genetics is making the difficult decision which males do you castrate. You have to keep only the best males entire. But with the genetics you have got, you have such a difficult decision. Taffy Bear’s fleece was super but he was up against such competition.

    The better genetics you have the harder the decisions become.
