For those of you addicted to 'Leopards", "Appaloosas" "spotties" etc etc you may remember our delight when we posted a photo of our 5000th cria since moving HQ to Oakbank in the late 90's.
Well here he is all grown up EP Cambridge Panthera and gotta say i couldn't be happier with how he has grown out!
He has inherited his Sires (EP Cambridge Leopard) good nature given he had never been on a halter and happily strode out from the yards with Sheree to pose for me in the better light.
When we purchased our first 5 females we never in all our wildest dreams imagined twenty years later we would own and control over 3500 alpacas worldwide subsequently making us the largest ‘alpaca stud’ in the world.
It has been a wonderful journey that has taken Cathy and I to the high altiplano of Peru assessing many thousands of alpacas to speaking on alpaca nutrition in places like Norway, Switzerland, France, United Kingdom etc.
We have both independently judged prestigious European shows such as the The British Futurity, ‘Royal Bath and West’, The SWAG and The Heart of England and have sold and then co-ordinated large scale exports to China and made new alpaca friends and clients throughout most European countries including Switzerland, Italy, Germany, France,Ireland,Norway and Spain.
Our bloodlines dominate most shows throughout Europe and Australasia.
Cathy and I and our fabulous team of staff are committed to breeding the holy grail of alpacas, while the business end of this industry has been very kind to us the pure love for these animals is our biggest win of all.
We hope you enjoy browsing through our site and look forward to hearing from you.
Matthew and Cathy LLoyd.
