Hi Penny & Steven, just a quick note to say thank you both for a truly enjoyable afternoon we both had with you both, all the alpacas and of course Isaacs.  I have wanted a walk with them for years and it was well worth waiting for. We very much want to come again so keeping my fingers crossed.
Maggi, Hitchin

 

I just wanted to say a big thank you for this morning, my son had a brilliant time, we all enjoyed it. Your alpacas are lovely animals all with their own characters!  I can see why you keep them.  I'm sure we will be back at some point. 
Lisa, Welwyn
