Thank you! The alpacas were a great success at our small farm fair. Your participation in our workshop's success was greatly appreciated. You guys were awesome. Thanks so much!

We would like to thank you for the wonderful care you afforded our Inca Spirit and her cria. They came back in wonderful condition. We were thrilled to have her bred to Drake.

My experience in the northwest was of education. However I never expected such hospitality and generosity, with memory's that will last a lifetime. You are true friends of mine and I look up to you for guidance - thankyou for all that you have done.
I just wanted to mention that more and more, I see Patagonia's animals or bloodlines featured in other people's advertising as a mark of quality. You must feel so gratified for all the years of hard work spent establishing such wonderful bloodlines. Having been an "onlooker" in the industry for this many years, I am just so pleased for you and Hugo to be receiving such well-deserved recognition.
Thank you so much for the quality animals you bring to this industry, I know we always look to your animals as some of the best out there and it takes a lot of hard work to do what you do, and not always do people give the gratitude that is deserved, so "thank you" again, and we look forward to seeing you again sometime soon

Thank you for your hospitality - the children were enthralled. It was so nice of you to take the time out of your busy day and allow these city slicker kids to get up close and personal with the alpacas.
Yesterday I visited the ranch with Mrs. Carlson's kindergarten class, and I enjoyed the trip very much. Yours is the type of educational trip I like to share with my children!
The kids LOVED visiting your farm! Thank you for your kindness to all of our kids. The alpacas now have a secure place in the hearts of our children.
We just wanted to write to tell you it was such a pleasure meeting you both and being able to spend some lovely time together. One of the many reasons we decided to raise alpacas was because so many of the people we met were so nice. But there are some who are just extra special and that is the two of you. Thank you for making this conference so memorable and special for us.

We at Pilchuck Valley Wildlife Rehabilitation Center can't than you enough for your generous donation of 2 beautiful alpacas. They added a magical touch to our auction and long afterwards it was over, people were still talking about them. Thank you so much for your support

On behalf of the Friend of Camano Island Parks, thank you for providing such an excellent program for us. It is not only great that you are on the most beautiful farm on Camano, but that you have such environmental friendly animals,. We are very appreciative of the fact that you are willing to share your experiences with our community. You both did an excellent job sharing the obvious pleasure you have raising these charming animals.

Whether you helped me in my efforts to have my own tractor business, or with my goal of having a small, beautiful, healthy, and profitable herd of alpacas, or in school, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Your response to our loss is without equal in my experience. You can never know the full feelings of gratefulness and appreciation for what you did. Our decision to purchase from you was the best one we could have made.
We just received our latest edition of the Karen Byram/Hugo Ulloa Alpacas Magazine! You certainly made an impact on the alpaca community with your many successes (now shared with many others like ourselves...thank you!) and generosity to the industry. Continued good wishes and success to two people who have earned their place with style, honesty, and much hard work.

It was a pleasure meeting you both. In today's world it is such a pleasure to meet people that are dedicated to a plan, make it work, make it work in the right business way and are nice people also.
I have spoken with some other clients of yours in VT and they said they had such a positive experience working with you that they could easily see making a future purchase without a farm visit!
Thank you big time to the owners of the alpaca farm on Camano Island for the beauty of your farm and those wonderful little animals that always make me smile every time I pass by...I hope you realize what a gift you are to our community and how much we appreciate you and your farm. Thanks for making Camano an even greater place to live.
Congratulations on your wins at the North American show, and in particular your white male out of a black sire!! Outstanding!
Thanks for all of your support and encouragement in getting us started in the business. You and Hugo have been our role models.

She is beautiful and will help prove to others that we should be judging the quality of the animal, not the country of origin. Please know that she has a good home and we are so grateful to have her as part of our breeding program. Thank you again for all you have done for us.
On behalf of all the FFA Members and Ag Instructors, we would like to say thank you to all our sponsors for helping to support our Puget Sound Junior Livestock Show. Your generosity help keep our program going strong. Your participation is not only appreciated because the show went smoothly, but the benefits that the students received from this experience are on going. Your continued support to our program is greatly appreciated.
We have a spectacular male out of El Padre. Newest in the fold is a black/bay black male from Sinopsis Nocturna/Vittoria born last Tuesday. He is probably the best black male that we have ever had - at 5 days of age not only is he extremely crimpy , but the crimp is lined up in symmetrical pattern like a much older cria. But the real star of the alpaca show here at our farm is the Kaspa female. The cria is extremely fine and has outstanding crimp (and not just good crimp for a grey!)
Your generosity of replacing her with a pregnant female is very much appreciated and the thought of letting her return as well would be more than generous. As always, any dealings with you have always exceeded what is necessary and you make us happy that we chose you and Hugo to work with in building our farm.
In regards to Carmelina, she is doing great. She has just taken a blue and reserve championship in Maine, judged by Mike Safely. We are very proud of Carmelina and cannot wait for her to make some amazing crias.
We have the most outstanding grey female cria this side of the Missouri in our Kaspa/Blueberry cria! She continues to amaze me with the beauty of her fiber - crimp, brightness, color and handle! Did I tell you previously that the Trauco/Barbie cria is outstanding? She has great crimp, bundling, and extreme brightness. Needless to say we are very excited about the show season next year!
I am wanting to tell you how fabulous a time we had up at your farm. Your staff was so smart and considerate to the seniors who had a ton of questions. They are still talking about the alpacas like it has been their life's mission!

Manzana's fleece took a second place at the 2005 FtoF hand crafters spin off and a blue ribbon last year at the Southern Select show. Manzana never leaves our farm; we just hire the best male we can find to come visit with her. We love Manzana and are so happy to have her. She just had her 9th birthday this February, celebrated with apple slices and small carrots. She remains a beautiful alpaca, the head of her herd.
Just a note to thank both of you so much for your donation of a male at the Parade of Champions sale. Everyone at the Alpaca Research Foundation really appreciates this donation.
Just a quick note to let you know that our Shackleton daughter, had her Compadre cria this morning. A jet back male! We're thrilled! Early indications are that he will be a winner! Beautiful luster. Fleece looks a lot like Gallant's fleece did right from the start, but in black. BTW Gallant just took 1st out of six this morning, then went on to win the Reserve Color Champion!! Two Res. Color Championships in his first two shows, at 7 months of age (judged by Maggie Krieger and Tim Lavan) certainly has us extremely excited.

Thank you for the alpacas that you donated. We have named them Azuli, Donato and Calito. Easy names for the 4H kids who are all studying Spanish! Thanks again for this most generous gift - you know they have a good home.
Just a quick note to thank you for your time yesterday and for sharing your farm with us. Your herd has such a serene and confident feel about it. Your attention to every detail is so evident as we walked through the farm. The consistency of the herd itself is just amazing, both in conformation and fleece. You have really done your homework in every aspect of herd management and it shows. It was such a joy to see them all so happy and content.
The visiting students from Japan thoroughly enjoyed their visit to your farm. Than you for making their experience a positive one... Some people have a special gift for making sure that everyone has a good time. You are one of those people.
Gracias amigos! Thanks for your warm welcome and hospitality. We really admire your courage and resourcefulness in overcoming all of the obstacles involved in an alpaca import.

Just writing a note of thanks to you and Hugo for spending your valuable time with Andy and me on Sunday. We had been to many places over 3 days and talked to many people, but visiting you put it all into perspective for me. I must be truthful and tell you that I was fearful that such a large ranch would be inaccessible to us. Happily that is not the case at all. Thank you so much for your help. It certainly is most appreciated.
