2017 Summer Showing Round Up

Well…June 2017 saw the arrival of the Northern Ireland Alpaca Group’s Annual Judged Show at Armagh. Elaine and I couldn’t be more proud to take Champion White and Supreme Champion with Popham Kane, Best Home Bred with Amberly Vindication, Champion Suri with Amberly Suri Perkúnas, Champion Grey with Amberly Portrait of Perdita (Purdy) and Champion Fawn with Amberly Secret Ceremonials. Thank you to Barbara Hetherington for judging such a fabulous event and well done to all of the other exhibitors! Special thanks to Felicia Sanders, Terry Winter, Janet Morrison and Annabel Magee for helping us with everything on the day!

PS….having proven herself without any shadow of a doubt, we decided to leave Simply sizzling at home in the maternity paddock!



Success at the BAS National Show 2016

What a fun filled weekend at the National Show! Great to catch up with friends, old and new! This year we entered three of our fleeces and we’re delighted to get a 1st, 2nd and 3rd! Congratulations to all who took part and a huge thank you to all those involved in organising such a brilliant event!



Success at the ‘Heart of England’…Europe’s largest fleece show

This month marks the pinnacle of our alpaca journey to date. We entered three of our fleeces into Europe’s biggest fleece show, the ‘Heart of England’ and out of 240 entries, are very proud of our results.

  • ‘HoneyField Cassandra of Amberly’ won second place intermediate light huacaya.
  • ‘Atkins Lightning of Amberly’ won champion white suri.
  • ‘HoneyField Simply Sizzling of Amberly’ won Reserve Supreme Champion Huacaya and overall ‘Best British’ huacaya!

We couldn’t be more proud and are forever thankful to Donna Stalker of HoneyField Alpacas and Nick and Sue Atkins of Atkins Alpacas for their continued help and support!

Incidentally, ‘HoneyField Cassandra of Amberly’ was awarded ‘Best British Huacaya’ at the 2014 Heart of England and was the first ever coloured huacaya to receive the prestigious award.
