In Australia at least, and most likely unknowingly most studs around the world, almost every farmed alpaca in the western world, would have Jolimont somewhere in their alpacas Background.
Through alot of Bad Luck, through a previous business- a Bakery, where we worked 7 days a week, and had gained a very good reputation and Business Melbourne wide, one night, a drunken driver drove his car through the front of our shop, although insured, the insurance company would not pay out because they had no hope of getting the monies back from the driver who was als a fugitive from the law.
...that is Our Luck.
For three years I fought the Insurance company, and the Insurance company made us an offer to settle, $120,000. Wow, although the accident put us $220,000 in debt, (previously owning our home), we were advised to settle as the insurance company would just keep appealing until inflation would eat this money up, so we took the advice and accepted this deal, but we had to hire special accountants and lawyers that deal with insurance companies so we were told at the time, but we received a cheque for $10,000, and when i rang up to ask why the cheque was only $10,000, i was told, the rest went out in their fees.
I suppose Rob and I were as green as the grass, we only commented yesterday we probably still are in ways.
