A rainy Saturday

Saturday April 26, 2014   It looks a little dreary outside but we're still having class today. The rest of our big barn clean out, which we were hoping to do after class has been postponed until the weather improves.   And the grass continues to get greener! Happy Saturday! Photo…

Juliet

Thursday April 24, 2014  I will tell you, over the winter I've been just a little worried about our Juliet. (That is why she and her mom were removed from the for sale page, I wont sell any alpaca if I have concerns about them at all)  She is a…

Snow and swallows

Wednesday April 23, 2014  The weather forecasting stone has white on top today! I think that means it's snowing. ;) Maybe more snow this morning and much colder today, which probably pleases the alpacas.  They have no use for 70+ temps when they are wearing a year's growth of fleece!   My…

Bird Rescue Zone

Tuesday April 22, 2014  I really love all the birds that visit Blue Moon Ranch and of  course I encourage them by keeping bird feeders filled.  Our problem is that our home has many large windows all over and we get quite a few bird crashes into the windows. I've tried those decals…

I can see clearly now…

Monday April 21, 2014   You might notice that the main cam (under the overhang) has a slightly different view. It's because we are doing a big barn clean up this year and we removed the chute that used to be under there.  Now the chute is more accessible and we might…

Dogs in class

Friday April 18, 2014  Chief and Abby thought having 26 kids here yesterday was the best thing ever.  Gideon thought it was OK.  (give the guy a break, he is almost 11 :))  When the kids were told to get in a circle, Chief sat right in the circle next…

A new Alarm clock

Wednesday April 15, 2014   OK, so it sounded like a rooster in the hen house. I do know what a rooster sounds like, and I heard one crowing ... I had just stepped out in the dark to take a few photos of the moon, but it was too dark…

Spring Clean up

Sunday April 13, 2014  I really think alpaca poop is awesome.  Really!  We don't give it away, we use it to fertilize pastures and plants here, and we sell any leftovers.  But, it was getting to be time for the big barn clean up and we found a neighbor who…
