Nach längerer Vorbereitungszeit, die der Informationssammlung diente, selektierte Cathy Lloyd 1993 ihre erste eigene Alpakaherde und gründete ihre eigene Alpakazucht „Eringa Park Alpaca Stud“. Dafür reiste sie quer durch Australien.
Viele Importe aus Amerika und Peru folgten, wobei der Fokus auf Feinheit und Dichte gelegt wurde. Sie bereiste Neuseeland um dort Erfahrungen zu sammeln. Schnell erfolgte auch die Teilnahme an Alpakashows mit einem eigens aufgestellten Showteam.
Nicht nur die Herde expandierte immer mehr, auch die Interessensgebiete erweiterten sich fortlaufend. Mit ihrem Wissen und ihren Erfahrungen half sie vielen Neueinsteigern in Australien und England eine passende und gesunde Herde aufzubauen. Sie gibt Seminare im In-und Ausland und berät ihre Kunden in allen Fragen zur Zucht und Haltung der Tiere.
Auf vielen nationalen und internationalen Shows nahm sie sehr erfolgreich teil.
