Minerva is the matriarch of our herd. She arrived here in 2015 and was clearly in control of the other girls from the outset. She is a lovely friendly animal, and she has produced five cria for us at Old Felton, two of which have been Northumbrian champions!
Gallica is one of our original females. Whilst she was registered in the UK as a cria, she has an amazing pedigree and boasts the Australian Camelot Tor as her grand-sire. She is a stunning female who has a pleasing show record becoming the Champion White Female and Reserve Supreme Champion at Northumberland in 2013 - the only time she was entered! Since then she has become a breeding female and has produced some lovely prize-winning animals, including our in-house stud Augustus. She has given birth to three females and we are looking forward to using them in our breeding program.
Old Felton Bellanca (Bella) was born in 2016. She is the daughter of Gallica and Beck Brow Explorer. She was almost 10.5 kg at birth and she has continued to be a fine upstanding female. She had a good show career, winning first prizes in both NWAG and Northumberland shows, and she boast being Reserve Champion at both. She has produced two lovely boys, Endeavour and Fairfax.
Britannia was the first cria to be born at Acton Home Farm, so she is always going to have a special place in our hearts at Old Felton, and in 2018 the judges at the Northumberland Show confirmed our views in awarding a championship. She has since produced a handsome dark brown male cria, Espresso.
On the day that Duchess entered the world we were all pleasantly surprised – our multi girl Penelope produced a solid daughter, her sire being Waradene St Patrick. She has always been a lively lass and shows a bit of attitude! She has only been shown once, but received a championship!
Beck Brow Fair Play joined the herd in 2016. She is a beautiful upstanding black girl, with an impressive show career, including winning the Scottish Championship together with a 1st in her class at the Nationals as a junior. Since then she has produced three outstanding girls: Delilah, Evie and Freedom.
