Project Relocation: Update

We're down to 12 days before closing on our new place.

Everything is ready to go, we're just waiting for closing day.

Actually, that's not quite true. Everything is ready to go with respect to closing on the house. I still have a list of things to do before we can call this project complete.
  1. Put utilities in our name
  2. Reserve moving truck
  3. Finalize corral layout for alpacas
  4. Schedule fence installer
  5. Schedule heath certificates for herd
  6. Schedule alpaca transporter
  7. Order hay and feed for winter

I know there are many details that need to be addressed before we will feel settled but once the herd is on our property, Project Relocation will be complete.

Help us Name the Alpaca

The last Alpacamundo cria has been born for 2009... and he's the beautiful bay-black boy you see here. He was born on Monday, 9/7 (Labor Day) at 12:30 pm weighing in at 13.6 pounds. He is the son of Luna Vella's Jane and MBP (Rocky) Marciano.

Since we had so much fun naming Eduardo, we decided to let everyone participate this time.

The person who submits the winning name will be awarded 2 oz of fiber from his first shearing (approximately, May 2010).
