The tall and short of it

Saturday, February 20, 2016 Looking out my window I'd tend to believe the forecast that says more snow for Woodland today.  All I can think is how beautiful our grass will be when it gets to drink up all this moisture. I'm starting to see small patches of green poke through the…

Come see the alpacas in winter!

Friday, February 12, 2016 We'll be ready for visitors tomorrow afternoon at 1:00.  When we changed our ranch visit policy last month, we said we'd offer quarterly Open Barn Days so this is the first one for 2106. It's an abbreviated version of our bigger fall event that we do every September.  We hope you'll come by…

Nighttime lullabies

Monday, January 25, 2016  On occasion, usually close to a full moon, the guardian dogs bark A LOT at night.  But when they do that, we know they are working. If a cougar is prowling nearby, they know it and will do everything possible to deter it from coming closer. That…

56 more days

Saturday, January 23, 2016  More snow for us today, but it sounds like our friends on the east coast are  really getting hammered. It's one thing to endure a storm huddled in your home, but when you have animals outside to care for it's a different story, Good Luck to you…

Shhhhh

Friday, January 22, 2016  When the sun comes out after a big snow it really is beautiful here. We had one of those day yesterday. I can get all alpacas out in the sun with a bale of hay and I love to think of them soaking up some vitamin D.…

Schedule change!

Friday, January 8, 2016  We've had to make a change to our January event schedule and our "fun with fiber" afternoon scheduled for Jan 23 will now happen on January 30.  Sorry for any inconvenience. We're having another cloudy gray day and the alpacas are venturing out more and more into the snow.  If they follow the dogs' paths (which…

December 19

Saturday, December 19, 2015  The forecast for today is for more sun and warmer temps. To take advantage of that, I think I'll get outside with my camera and spend some time taking photos today. (it's much easier when fingers are not freezing!) My subjects will be alpacas, dogs, cats…

Snow today?

Monday, November 9, 2015  Once again they're predicting snow today and once again we're ready. The pastures are as clean and compost covered as they can be and it sure would be nice to see them turn white again. All 10 babies will get a dose of Vitamin D today,…

Not quite winter yet

Wednesday, November 4, 2015  The winds are howled, it rained a bit and the temperature dropped. ( It's 24 degrees here this morning) But no white stuff.  I made sure all the alpacas (and dogs) had warm bedding inside the barn, automatic waterers all clean, and I felt good as…

Trust the stone

Friday, October 30, 2015  They're saying we'll see snow next week.  But they also said we'd see snow yesterday, so I'll just keep checking my weather stone for the most accurate forecast. Yes we do get pretty excited about snow here, it's what keeps our local economy going.  Skiers won't…

A good safe feeling

Wednesday, October 28, 2015  It's often during a full moon that we hear the most barking from the dogs outside.  So I wasn't surprised to hear the guardian dogs around midnight last night telling some creature not to come any closer to Blue Moon. I was pleased however to hear…

I ❤️ Mondays :)

Monday, October 12, 2015  It's cooling off a little more this week and the alpacas are very happy about that.  How happy you ask? ;)  Well, watch this video and you'll see.  VIDEO  See if you can spot Chief keeping his eye on them.  You might also hear Rufus the…

Better late than never?

Sunday, September 20, 2015  Oops, I'm a bit late with an update this morning. But who else do you know who updates their own website every single day?  ;) So I figured a little late would be OK. We were awake a bit during the night with Chief and a…

News for shoppers

Tuesday, September 15, 2015  So what's happening with the online store? Well I'll tell you! There was a major update to the software, and I'm finding some glitches with some of the items.  I'll probably have to redo the whole store, but it won't happen until after Open Barn days…
