Expanding our Alpaca Herd

Big news on the farm- We’ve adopted 6 new female alpacas!

This last Sunday, we were fortunate enough to be able to borrow a livestock trailer from a local cow/turkey farmer and we took the long drive to Justa Alpaca Farm in Farmington Maine and picked them up.

She was rehoming her entire herd, and we originally only went down to get 4- and we ended up with 6, one or two of which may or may not be pregnant.

It was a pretty straight forward trip, down and back. Left by 7:30 and back by a little after 3:30. We let them loose and the herd we have immediately accepted them all. They don’t have names, as of yet, but we’re learning their looks and temperaments before we decide on anything (even tho I’m already calling the baby Smidge)

Until next time, have a wicked good day!
