Sometimes great things just happen here! Out of the blue, we were asked by a local couple to please take these beautiful alpacas!...and their guard llama! Here they are on the day they arrived, getting used to the new pen and looking back at the Jacob's sheep, who might be pretty intimidating with their 4-horned head gear! These guys are wonderful and they have beautiful fleeces which we will have made into yarn this fall. They are so gentle...and they have the most adorable little sound..sort of a 'mew'. But that sound does mean they're on edge, so silence is what we want in the alpaca pen. And this guard llama means business. I have named him 'Maria', although he's a male and the suggestion has been made to call him 'Mario'. Oh, and the names of the alpacas are 'Star', 'Midnight' and 'Fawn' (for the obvious colors). And the 3 little brown ones just had to be 'Frodo', "Samwise' and 'Pippin'. ...you tell me why. Look for their close-ups on the sponsorship page!
