We love to educate & share our Alpaca herd of 37 with 6 being last years cria, and six more coming this year. Yoda, Queen Amadila, Ms. Betty White, Marilyn Monroe, Ms Independence & Cristal Champagne all were born last spring & summer. Our first three cria this year are due the first week of July, a must see, as you will fall in Love...
This year has been a busy year, with last year's cria becoming juveniles at a year old. Halter training them is fun & can be a challenge. This training is necessary so that they can go to a few shows this spring, walk on lead ropes around the farm and other events, as well as be handled with ease daily. They started their show careers, in California at Alpaca Odyssey, then to Alpacapalooza in WA, PNAA in Pasco WA & ending at CABA in Portland OR. They all did very well! Lots of ribbons to add to their portfolios.
Again this June you will see some of the alpacas in the Marysville Parade!
July will be baby cria's being born on the farm & breeding season.
We will be breeding eight of our females to herdsires this year at some of our fellow alpaca farms. Alpacas de la Patagonia, Liberty alpacas, The alpaca Group, Casa De Arboles, Alpaca Adventures, Alpacas of Misty Ridge, and Stellar Alpacas. I'm already excited for next years cria, but have to wait 11.5 months... stay tuned for these Blue & Purple Ribbon Winners.
Our processed alpaca fiber includes yarn, roving, fabric, felted, rugs, doll hair, knitted & crochet products. socks.
We started feeding barley fodder last fall to all the alpacas, come check out the room, and how it is cutting our hay bill expense, while providing a high protein supplement.
