Sarah has just phoned me with all the news of her exciting day. She has had a wonderful time so thank you very much for all you did today. I think you may be seeing her again! Kate
Thanks! They loved the experience. I had great photos sent to me too and they said how engaging you were and how well cared for the animals were. A perfect Christmas gift! Many thanks, Victoria.
Just want to thank you again for our visit. The girls had a brilliant time. You made my young leader very happy too. Ruth
Dear Richard Just a note to say "thanks" for a lovely afternoon. Although the weather kept us in the field shelter, it did not take anything away from the enjoyment of the day. Your obvious love and enthusiasm for your animals, coupled with their grace and endearing temperament and habit, won us over immediately. Thank you and kind regards, David
Your llamas have inspired me to pick up the paintbrush again. I've not really painted since doing my fine art degree (a long, long time ago!) and it felt good. Kate
I just wanted to say thank you so much for coming in today with Jack. I'm still in shock at the fact a Llama walked down the corridor and stood in a classroom for an hour, and was so well behaved! Such a unique/fun experience for all. The children had the best time and learnt a lot, so thank you. It was wonderful. Danielle
Just a quick email to say how much we appreciated today and the time you took out of your day to show us round. We were really impressed with your setup and your knowledge. Hannah
