Now that we’re experiencing some milder days, it’s time to get out the camera and update our sale photos. This is also a good time to do a little lead training while getting better shots of individual alpacas. The other day we took Electra out for a little walk and got a nice pic of [...]
This time of year usually find us beginning to halter train last year’s crias, especially those we plan to show in the spring. Only one of the crias we are currently training will be shown in the upcoming season – Snowshoe Ginger. This 9 month old fawn female is a daughter of our Champion herdsire, [...]

We’ve been watching this beautiful young female cria, Snowshoe Fancypants, tear around the pastures – she’s something else! Her fiber, we could see when we recently sheared her, is starting to crimp at the base and should be looking great by spring shearing. Fancypants is sired by our 8X Champion/Reserve Champion, Snowshoe Aristides.
As part [...]

It’s truly amazing to watch not only newborn babies that can stand and nurse within an hour – or less – of birth, but also the new mothers whose instincts kick in and tell them just what to do with their new babies! Yesterday’s birth is a good example. We knew Caledonia would be having [...]
It was good to see a healthy and active cria on the ground first thing this morning! Yesterday’s baby is still weak and we’re fairly sure he has a health problem. But he’s nursing when we stand him up and the rest of the time he’s comfortably cushed next to his dam.
This morning Cassiopeia [...]
Esther Rose finally gave birth to a male cria this morning on day 366 of her pregnancy. That’s a very long, but not uncommon, gestation length for an alpaca. Despite the long wait, this little guy weighs in at less than 11 lbs. This is the smallest cria that’s been born on our farm. His [...]
We’ve been waiting for several crias to make an appearance and now that we have cool rainy weather, they’ve decided to show up. Today was a good one – two girls! Cinnamon Girl gave birth to her second female cria sired by our champion male, Snowshoe Aristides. The baby was on the ground when Ron [...]
