Boom Boom!

Wednesday, July 5, 2017  Well, all the dogs survived the scariest holiday of the year and if only I thought it was over, I'd feel better. In Utah we also have the 24th of July (Pioneer Day or Pie and Beer Day depending on your persuasion) and the fireworks will…

Barn kitty games

Thursday, June 29, 2017  Our kitten Bogart adjusted the camera when he was playing around it a few days ago and I've heard from some viewers that they like the new view. What do you think?  Leave it? Move it back? Speaking of Bogart, he's growing so fast and I…

Oh oh

Wednesday, June 28, 2017  We had some wonderful visitors yesterday, and some of them had 4 feet. I have a friend who has been a dog trainer and breeder for 20 years and she happened to have a litter that she thought might warm some hearts here. She came to…

baaaaaa part 2

Tuesday, June 27, 2017  The sheep saga continues. Most of the alpacas have come to realize that the new neighbors are harmless, but there are a few who just won't quit with the alarm calls! So yesterday I thought maybe they needed a closer look and I opened the gate…

Missing the babies?

Monday, June 26, 2017  We started raising alpacas in 1998 and every single year since then we've had babies born in the summer ... except for this year. So how does it feel? Do I miss those adorable babies and being able to witness the miracle of birth? Of course,…

Breakfast conversations

Friday, June 23, 2017  Every Friday I have breakfast with a dear friend who also happens to be a world renown animal communicator. She talks to all the animals, translates for their owners and that is her job. She has no website, no facebook, and all her clients are word…

Baaaaa

Thursday, June 22, 2017  We've had cow neighbors, we've had horse neighbors, and the alpacas are used to that. But we've never ever had sheep neighbors and when the trailer next door opened, out came a bunch of sheep - which set the alpacas into alarm call mode for hours.…

Summer Solstice!

Wednesday, June 21, 2017  Happy Summer Solstice! There will be plenty of sunshine to go around today after a ferocious storm came through last night. We lost quite a few branches from the big willow in our driveway, the outside cam was toppled and the reiki tent might not have…

White fur flies

Monday, June 19, 2017  June is not only for alpaca shearing but also for outside dog grooming.  The three guardian dogs are shedding their dense winter undercoats and I'm the one who helps get it all out. Charlotte is almost done, and yesterday I decided to take advantage of the…

Let’s all calm down
