Customer Testimonials

Thanks to our customers for their kind words. We are more than pleased that the animals we have sold are working out well for their new owners. We would like to share a few of the comments from some happy customers:

"Whether my question was as straightforward as how to prepare for an upcoming show or as complex as an inquiry into the science behind EPDs, Shauna Brummet and Jeff Skinner were always ready with helpful answers, advice, and observations.  Even more importantly, their responses to my new-to-the-business type questions were always animated with the joy they took from alpacas and their warm and close connections in the alpaca business. I was fortunate to have them among my early mentors when entered the alpaca business, and I continue to benefit from their wisdom and perspective as a more seasoned breeder as well. You can’t do better for mentors than Shauna and Jeff!"

"Shauna and Jeff with Hobby Horse Farm has been instrumental in taking our starting alpaca herd to the next level. They have emphasized the use of science along with true fleece knowledge to make positive breeding decisions. They have been a fabulous farm that works with each farm to put together a purchase program that is individualized to fit the buyers needs. With Clint and I, our jobs are seasonal and need creative help, and they are very willing to help. They continue to help even after the animals are off their farm. I hear of horror stories of new breeders with no help....Shauna and Jeff have not let us down. They are committed to the alpaca community and to the growth of the best alpacas for the United States herd. The animals we got from them are some of the best on our farm. Thank you Jeff and Shauna for all you do!!!"

"After looking at various farms, we decided to go with Hobby Horse Farm because of what they had to offer. There was really no comparison in regards to continuing education and support, quality of alpaca, and value. One of the best decisions we have ever made!"

Aaron and Sarah Breiding, Gold Medal Alpaca Farm

"We are grateful to Shauna and Jeff for giving us the opportunity to purchase this magnificent male.  Gunner is all we could hope for in a stud.  We call him our "WOW!" alpaca, because that's the first reaction of everyone who puts their hands on him and in his fiber!  His eight championships attest his quality, but that's not the only reason we are so pleased with him.  His manners and personality make him SO easy to work with.  We can actually call his name like a pet dog and move him from one pasture to another!  We purchased Gunner on Dec 2nd 06 and  bred him to three of our girls within a few days of getting him home.  He settled all three.  We had our first Gunner cria born on Nov 6- 07.  We are SO pleased with all our crias.  All have been an improvement over their respective dams. Although we have other Champion males,  we think Gunner is probably one of the best investments we ever made!"

"Hi Shauna and Jeff!
Just wanted to let you know that Clint did it again. He took 1st and Fawn male color Championship at the Northern Illinois Alpaca Extravaganza this past weekend. As soon as I get the photos, I'll be sure to pass them on to you.  Thanks again for allowing us to purchase him. We couldn't be more pleased."
