alpacas for sale Utah

Oh those faces!

Monday, September 14, 2015  I took my camera out into the pastures last night just before sunset and the babies seemed to know I was looking for cute faces.  They didn't disappoint me and I'll be using the photos over the next few days.  This is the start of a…

Bittersweet

Saturday, September 12, 2015  Yesterday we sold all 5 of our baby boy alpacas from this year.  Bittersweet.  But mostly sweet because #1 I know they will be loved and well cared for, and #2 they will all be together!  Also because this buyer looked at many other alpaca farms…

Black is beautiful

Thursday, September 10, 2015  When we first bought alpacas in 1998, I was drawn to the warm colors of browns and fawn for our new little herd.  I didn't care much for the black ones, maybe because they were hard to photograph and I didn't quite understand the fiber scene. …

Very special dogs

Friday, September 4, 2015  Thanks for all the suggestions on finding a helper for Chief. Our local shelter is unique in that they will allow dogs into situations like ours, most shelters require that the dog be a house pet. Also most house pets who have been surrendered to shelters…

Yay for September!

Tuesday, September 1, 2015  It's September! A pretty busy month for us, getting ready for Open Barn Days but I sure do love the cool nights, changing colors of the trees and having more inside time for spinning and knitting. :) Today will be my last Tuesday "Yaya Day" for…

that moon!

Sunday, August 30, 2015  Wow, did you see that full moon last night? The full moon brings out lots of night predators so our guardian dogs work over time. I heard coyotes howling and a few other strange noises but the dogs' barking lets me know they have things under…

“Criations” of the day

Thursday, August 13, 2015  Today will be another breeding day.  A long long time ago, when we boarded our alpacas, I'd say to the woman who boarded them, "will you please get that girl bred!" Having absolutely no idea what that involved, and assuming it couldn't be that hard.  Well…

🎶Monday Monday

Monday, August 10, 2015  If there is one day during the week that I let myself take a bit of a break, that day would be Monday. Weekends are usually filled with visitors and projects that need to be completed while two of us are here. So yes I really…

grateful

Sunday, August 9, 2015  As I read stories on the internet of bottle fed babies from their exhausted owners, or stories of moms who reject their crias, or sick alpacas, I knock on wood and am filled with gratitude for the health of all our animals this year. I suppose…

It’s a Blue Moon!

Friday, July 31, 2015  A full moon tonight, a Blue Moon even - will this be the day Angelica chooses? They say the cria chooses the week, but the mom picks the day. Breeding was a little chaotic as usual yesterday and Silver Lake seemed to know what to do.…

Any day now….

Monday, July 27, 2015  Angelica should be the next to deliver, but her "due date" is not until Early August. She is looking HUGE and getting rather uncomfortable. She's eating non stop all day - which I see often right before delivery, but she might decide to hold on for…
