More meltdown :)

Saturday, March 4, 2017  Well, temps stayed above freezing all night so meltdown should be significant today. Yay! The alpacas have confined themselves to safe paths just outside their barns, I hope today they'll feel safe enough to venture out on to the melting snow.  I'll be spending time in…

The sun will be bright today and I will make sure all the animals get out of the…

It’s all about time

Wednesday, January 25, 2017  When you have your own business, one of the most valuable things you have is your time. Add in the farming angle and there really are no days off or down times. And I wouldn't have it any other way!  But I do have to be protective of every precious hour…

No uninvited guests allowed!

Monday, August 29, 2016  Well, I don't know what it was, but something tried to get near the barn last night and Chief wouldn't allow it.  I woke up to lots of barking at 3:00 a.m. and could see Chief at work removing an uninvited visitor. The "sister wives" Abby and Charlotte were right…

Alpaca shows?

Wednesday, April 13, 2016  Since I am always posting photos of our beautiful alpacas, I am often asked why we don’t take them to shows.  So since you asked, I’ll tell you. #1 I never enjoyed it. We used to show and we have blue and purple ribbons to prove it.…

Watching for cria movement

Friday, March 18, 2016  I'm hoping it's warm enough for me to sit outside this afternoon to do some checking for cria movement.  We have a bit of warming up to do - it's 27° as I type.  I have great hopes for Roxy Rose this year, she definitely looks pregnant but I've learned that…
