Keeping up with the Steeles and Fleece Stewarding

After all this inclement weather we decided we needed to get ourselves another field shelter and as per the mighty Patou's recommendation we got ours from Stables and Shelters. We would recommend them to anyone looking (efficient and well priced)!

Here are the alpacas checking it out!

The first day and a half of my futurity trip were spent fleece stewarding. Above are the fleeces and the two judges (Tim Hey and Rob Bettinson) and below the winning Huacaya fleece. Notice the beautifully filled out form :o). Well done EP Cambridge and Nav's new owners Houghton Hall Alpacas on the result.
