WF Fire Cracker off to Europe

Waratah Flats Fire Cracker is this month heading off to “Alpaca Flanders” in Belgium to take up stud breeding duties with his new owners Thijs and Theo. Fire Cracker has been a firm favourite with many alpaca people as he has toured around the shows in the South Island and we shall miss him when he goes. We have been delighted with the offspring he has left with us and look forward to the last half a dozen more cria we are expecting this coming summer.


Export to Germany

June 2015

We would like to offer our congratulations to Talina Lorei and her family at the Lopaka Ranch in northern Germany for the purchase of three lovely Waratah Flats females that have just been exported and have safely arrived in Europe. These females were selected by Talina on her visit to New Zealand in September last year, when she was looking for new genetic breeding stock for their developing alpaca ranch.

Talina is a delightful young lady that helped out a number of alpaca breeders at the shows around Canterbury last spring, including the Alpaca Expo. She has a good nature with the alpacas and an excellent understanding of the quality of alpaca fleece.

At Waratah Flats, Talina selected three Forestglen Seth daughters because of their soft handling fleece characteristics and their low micron. Each of these females has since been mated to WF Hat Trick and we wish them well with these lovely females and their future offspring.
