Day in the life on an alpaca farm

Many farms know the work it takes to care for the animals. We are no exception, we just have alpaca's.

Each day starts pretty much the same, up at 5:30am, get the beet pulp soaking in water, a good sources of protein and they love it! It is rather funny because they know the routine and if I don't have the beet pulp in their barn by 7:30am I am greeted by the stares of each one patiently waiting!

We check the water make sure buckets are clean and full of fresh water. We sw

March 30th, 2022 First Cria of the year!

Wednesday we had a big surprise! Welcome our new 2022 arrival, the first one this year.

She must have been in a hurry as she arrived a month early. Not sure if the storm that came thru the night before helped or just an early baby, either way she made it here.

Weighed in at a perfect 16 pounds and 2 ounces. Long legs straight as an arrow, and strength just like her daddy [YYAF Rainier].

It was a cold one outside when we found her. We scooped her up and brought

Won't Be long before Spring!

Ok, it's getting a little tiresome, the grey clouds and cold temperatures. We want to go outside and do some real yard work, smell fresh cut grass, plant the garden, and just all in all make a new beginning.

The alpacas with all the fleece they have, actually seem more comfortable in 20 degrees than 75 degrees. Went out this morning, and they had snow all over their backs, and although it looked frigid to me, they didn't even notice.

I'm looking forward to Easter, as that
