September is here

Wow, September already. That gets me thinking about NAFD (National Alpaca Farm Days). We are participating again this year with an open house to be held September 26th and 27th. Check out www.alpacafarmdays.com for info on this national event!

Our last 2015 cria finally arrives!

We are VERY pleased with this cria, A FAWN FEMALE and full accoyo to boot!! The mom has a strong white background but with the help of Express and Destinati, we pulled out a fawn. Nice fleece, a show girl for sure!

No pics yet but some will be coming later.

Got a call from the Clay County Fair.

We have been asked to bring some alpaca moms and babes to Grandpa's Barn at the Clay County Fair again this year! This year we will also be taking some pygmy goat kids too. Please stop by and see the variety of animals on display at Grandpa's Barn.

Little Shareese couldn't wait any longer, she just had to get out! Born early, she weighed in at just 10 pounds.(our smallest cria ever!) It took her a bit longer than normal to get up and nurse but she did and all progressed normally.

Wisconsin Alpaca and Fiber Fest

This was the last show of the spring season for us.

Results:
Mag- 2nd place (great comments from the judge!)
Amazing Grayce- 2nd place
Jacoby- 4th place
Equinox- 2nd place
Lexi- 6th place
Tinka- 1st place (considered closely for reserve color champ but, not quite)
Reegan- 3rd place
Sadie- 5th place
Mia- 2nd place

The show also offered evaluations outside the ring. The evaluation judge was Sharon Loner and when we showed her Mag she said "I would breed to him in a heartbeat". At the age of 3, he has several crias on the ground and on the way and we have some more breedings planned for him this summer!

Well, we got a champ in 2013 and 2014 but not yet in 2015. We have one more shot at one in Des Moines in October and we might possibly also attend the Oklahoma Blastoff in November.
