Alpaca Breeding and Sales

Alongside our activities and experiences, we are building our very own breeding herd of light fawn and white alpacas.

We are also very proud to offer our very own stud male Snapdragon Samurai, recently purchased from Toft Alpaca Stud, who is available for outside matings.

Snapdragon Samurai

Are you looking for a young stud with great promise that has an excellent pedigree?


Finding the right stud for your female can be time consuming.  That’s why we are so pleased to offer Snapdragon Samurai.  He is a solid white, 6-year-old Huacaya alpaca that comes from an award-winning lineage. His grandfather is the famous Barrabinda Flinders Star of Toft who has produced many champion alpacas, both male and female.  


Like the rest of his family, Snapdragon Samurai is already on the way to being a prolific award winner, achieving Reserve Champion at the 2018 Heart of England Fleece Show when he was just 2 years old. 

In 2021 he also came second in the Huacaya White Fleece 48 months+ at the Heart of England Fleece Show.

He has the fleece stats to back up this early promise, and his lineage will set him up to be an in-demand stud for years to come.


Snapdragon Samurai is a fantastic all-rounder.  Along with this acclaimed lineage and early success, he also offers fantastic confirmation, with strong stature and classic proportions. His fleece shows excellent traits as you would expect from his breeding alongside a superb temperament so that you can be confident that he’ll be able to sire valuable offspring, both in terms of pedigree and personality. 


With Snapdragon Samurai’s negative TB test and our biosecurity protocols you can feel reassured that this calm and successful stud has everything in place to keep your herd safe.


This is a unique opportunity to breed with a stud that has a reputable background at a great price.  As Snapdragon Samurai becomes increasingly recognised and racks up more awards, we’ll have to charge more for this stud, so be sure to grab this great deal as soon as possible.


Stud fee: £450 for drive by matings at Candleford Cottage. 

Discounts available for multiple matings and alternative arrangements can be discussed.

2021 fleece is available for viewing unless at a fleece show.

Alpacas for Sale

Unfortunately it is not possible for me to keep all of our alpacas. 

Maintaining diverse genetics in our herd, ensuring our walking alpacas are happy in their job and keeping the overall herd dynamics positive means from time to time we will have animals for sale.

We will only sell alpacas in groups of three, unless you have an existing herd of a suitable size and age range.

Currently we do not have any alpacas for sale but hit the button below to be added to our waiting list.
