After almost 10 wonderful years with owning and breeding alpacas it has come the time for us to say good bye to our Alpacas business. Our health has not been what we had hoped for and so we know it is time.
We have lowered prices and we are willing to work with any reasonable offers. We just have to be sure that our Alpacas will go to a good home. Our alpacas are all BVD tested and NEG. The are all Micro chipped and registered with ARI. Their ARI Certificates will go with each Alpaca no matter what the price is.
If you buy and don't have a farm set up right away no problem you can leave them here while you get your farm ready or maybe you want to board them closer to you. We will help any way we can.
Our Alpacas are not our whole life, they just make our life whole

Last year we sold two pregnant girls to a near by farm. We just knew the one bred to our White Lightening would have a white cria and good chance for a girl. So far he had given us 11 crias and 8 were girls and all crias white with very tight crimp.
Deelight 2 wks old from Lightening
When I received a phone call to come on over their girl was having her cria off we went. By the time we got there (20 mins) there was a baby girl on the ground but not white she was light to med. brown. The owners are just looking at me like I made a mistake in what Herdsire we used. No mistake after 10 white babies our Lightening decided to give our new clients a brown female cria. Wow we were so surprised and so happy for everyone. So never say never it could happen to you.

It is time for Brody to go visit our nursing home since his dad, Zac, and his sister, Candi have been sold. We started out trying Zac a few years ago and he was such a hit he had made many visits to see all the patients. Then one day we decided to take Candi to see if she could do the job. The staff and patients loved her just as much as Azc. Soon both were sold and we needed to train Brody to fill their shoes. All three of these alpacas are two tone and really stand out when they go into a patients room. Brody went to our nursing home today and did a great job. He is a lot smaller than his dad and sister and the patients just loved him. He passed the test and has been invited back again.

This is our 3rd generation of alpacas for using dogie doors. First is was our Thunder and he just had to be any where but where we put him. Then both his male crias Mr. Cooper and Bullet. Heck Bullet was 3 yrs. old and still going thru the small doors. So now we have the last Ranger from our Cooper. This guy is a year old and wants to be in the same pasture with his mom. Only to eat grass next to her and hum back and forth. The other girls all spit at him and go off to the next pasture but his mom, Sugar stays right by him. It is so cute to watch but again we will have to board up that doggie door to keep him in with the Jr. boys again. We just watch because when we go out and he can see us he runs and goes back into the pasture he should be and when we leave he is back with his mom. These pacas are so smart and such a joy.
can't keep him down
catch us if you can

Once again shearing day came and how lucky we were that we had no rain before or during. Thanks to our dear friends who give their time each year to help us out we had another very smooth shearing day. Once we were finished at our farm and we all sat for a while to eat and relax we all went with the shearer and heads men to the next farm who just happened to be our last clients and helped them out.
OK we know it is shearing day
Remember back to your first shearing and the stress and fear we all had. With all of us all helping out the new farm we hoped we made it a better experience for them. This is what we like to think that all alpaca owners will chip in and help new farms get their feet wet. Our new client took that one step farther and fell into the large water bucket. Nice way to stay cool for the rest of the day.
nice hair cut
more off the top please
why do I have to go first all the time

We are here to answer any questions you may have about alpacas and the life style so many folks are choosing today. You will learn the difference between Suri and Huacaya Alpacas and the difference in their fiber. You will be able to touch each alpacas and feel how each of them are different. Learn the importance of fencing and how you will have peace of mind when you have guard dogs to protect your herd. Just call or email us for an appointment to come meet us and our alpacas and how to get started in this new life style.
