  • Devon County Show..... - Popham Alpacas
    so eager in reminding them of the early entry closing date next year The entry count was 230 plus which was a Show record The is all the more encouraging when you consider that last year the entry only numbered 150 or so Devon County were so pleased with the Alpaca section they even came up with eight cash prizes worth over 100 for the Junior handlers on the last day unbeknown to a very confused Peter and I You should have seen the delight on the kids faces when they opened their envelopes Oh where was the camera The huacaya prizes were dominated by one of the biggest breeders in the south west Classical Mileend who won numerous championships and the Supreme Huacaya Prize much to my disappointment as I thought Joshua s chance had finally come He won the white Male championship in a very competitive field of superb males Unfortunately he was pipped to the post by a Classical Junior Fawn Male called Zerxes who had an extremely pretty fleece Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr I don t have many pictures as I was a bit busy but thank you everyone who attended Peter and I will be getting together shortly to have a sort of debrief and discuss all the comments we have received during and post the Show to see how we can improve it for next year And it will improve We already have plans of how to make the Saturday a more enjoyable and less hurried day see you next year We said goodbye to Thunder after the show He went to his new home at Inca Alpaca having just won the Black championship Felicia was in floods of tears in the showring Val was rather concerned that she may have done something to upset her but

  • Bath & West - Popham Alpacas
    He must have won something we thought Sure the Mighty Leader had won well but had left his good lady to clear up whilst he nipped home Some people Anyway the show was a pleasure Felicia and I have found this little B B in Somerton which we have used now for 3 years It s not actually little it s very nearly a castle and is called Somerton Court Country House B B I think Only 3 4 mile walk from some great pubs and a delightful bistro Home from home almost We didn t even need an early start because showing didn t begin till 10 30am However the day soon passed and we did well taking 2 championships both the male and female intermediate champions Dream Catcher and Cinderella Well what can you say about Cinderella A home bred female she has been a real star over the last couple of years Sired by Inca Matador she didn t have the best of starts in her showing career with only a fifth as a junior at the Swag show last year Then she began to grow and was Champion Fawn female at Devon County followed by a second in the junior fawn class at Bath West 2011 started well with a major win at the Futurity by taking the Fawn Female Championship The was followed by the same prize at the Swag Show and Devon County again and finally the Intermediate Female Prize at Bath West over the weekend What a pleasure she has been but she will now be retired and meet up with Cosmo in the next few weeks to hopefully continue the success story It s alpacas like that that make you realise why you do this thing Posted in Cria Post navigation Cosmo

  • Further Industry at Popham...... - Popham Alpacas
    at that really ugly stage at the moment All the females have been booked leaving only four males which will probably end in the pot unless anyone wants a buff orpington cockeral The next lot are due on Thursday These will be Well Summers Hopefully we ll get the same ratio of boys to girls I reckon it s the cider vinegar Might try it on the alpacas This years pigs have arrived and settled in Two Large blacks and two Oxford Sandy and Blacks All are girls this time so we won t have the problems we had last year when we let them go a bit too long and the meat tainted The rheas are very close to breeding The males are extremely protective over their one mature female and guard her from all intruders A wave of the hand soon puts them off No eggs yet but it shouldn t be too long now And then there s the alpacas Nothing much to report there I go to France on Thursday to join Steve and Jayne form Quelvehin and Ron and Judi from La Grand Mere Alpacas in going to the Vierzon Show over the weekend I understand there are 170 entries which must be more than twice the size of last year Always a great social Lots of food and booze I hope I can cope Posted in Cria Post navigation I concede defeat Wow where has the time gone 3 thoughts on Further Industry at Popham Dave says 28th March 2011 at 10 04 pm Careful with that rotovator Gary You ll not see Felilcia now Joy has a polytunnel too and she can t wait to get out there each morning it s full of seedlings and stuff planted already lots of exotic salad

  • Wow....where has the time gone - Popham Alpacas
    this is always one of my favourite moments The Europeans are very lucky in that they can so easily cross borders with their show teams This year was no exception with breeders from Belgium Spain and Holland the UK and of course the French This was by far and away the largest show in France to date with 170 odd entries The morning was damp and horrible the alpacas were drenched But the show went on and gradually things dried out Matt Lloyd had his work cut out with some very big classes and some truly stunning alpacas how the french have come on in the last 5 years is amazing The Popham team of Alfonso Daniel Solomon and Columbus did well taking two firsts and a second Columbus was in a very smart class of 3 On one side he had Jolimont Attitude a recent import from New Zealand and on the other Snowmass Uncontented Royalty I like to think it was close but he was beaten by rhe older Jolimont animal who went on to take Supreme Steve and Jayne did well with their Black Stud Atlas who was Reserve Champion Black The eventual winner was Jolimont Attitude owned Alpagas Solonge Here is Gabby being presented with the cup As you can see she is a little camera shy This last weekend saw Felicia and i off to the SWAG Spring show Funnily enough also in an Equestrian centre Maybe this is the way of the future It worked very well with the alpacas in separate stables making bio security much easier The facilities were superb with an on site restaurant and bar Once again there was a very high turnout of entries with around 300 and the show ran very smoothly How did Popham do Well we started with a junior grey huacaya male Popham doesn t do greys I hear you all shout We do When this fellow was born he looked brown on the outside but when you open up his fleece he is rose grey and he has become more and more grey over the months but still looks brown on the ousde he has the all important white markings on face and throat Anyway Samburu won the Junior grey male class We were gobsmacked and even more so by Cathy Lloyds comments about his fleece having advanced fleece characteristics I think the photo shows how excited Felicia was Wow Next was the turn of Thunder could he live up to his success at the Futurity The classes weren t quite so big here but there was some new names on the schedule Namely two imported males one of which has never been beaten by a black before Well I was so nervous about this one so much depended on it Thunder has never before been beaten by a black either Anyway Kathy Lloyd who is now my joint favourite judge along with Liz decided it was to be Thunder s day and he

  • Post BBQ daze...... - Popham Alpacas
    Popham was at it s best I d even cut the grass for the occasion Still amazes me how those dam dandelions stalks pop up after you ve gone over them with the ride on They must duck as you pass Once Felicia and I started we didn t stop and before you know it the day is over and hopefully people have left with full stomachs and ideas about Popham studs for their breeding plans this year We did have one very big announcement to make no I m not pregnant Jacqui We paraded Thunder our champion black during lunch and announced the sale of him to Inca Alpaca and EP Cambridge He shall be joining them after the Devon County Show Now I have the very difficult job of consoling the senior partner Thunder was one of her favourites The offer of a shopping trip did seem to cheer her up a bit though Thanks to Jayne and Steve for coming over and helping out and a special thanks to Lynne our only non alpaca person friend at the BBQ who did most of the work behind the scenes Gosh this sounds like the Oscars As you can see Sam Pascoe and Camouflage got on very well Posted in Cria Post navigation BBQ time CCA Show 5 thoughts on Post BBQ daze Mark says 27th April 2011 at 6 14 pm Very good Gary we enjoyed it and would have loved to have stayed longer and talked alpaca long into the night A nice picture of a Popham Inca Patou Quelvehin and Apple Vale gathering That little chaps camouflage was exceptional SAS material no doubt Now about next year Fancy a wager Reply steve parker says 28th April 2011 at 8 32 am Thanks for a lovely weekend
