The Alpacas are Here

After more than 2 years of thinking, hoping, planning and doing... the alpacas are here.  Hubba and I have our very own farm in Northern Colorado and we are officially full-time alpaca breeders.

The pictures are a bit dark, but here are some from their arrival tonight.

Dick Hegeman's Rig.

Our grey herdsire, Bandit.

Our first, Charlie Brown.

My teacher, Keyla.

Our light fawn herdsire, Flamenco, or Phil as he's commonly known.

Many thanks to Dick Hegeman of Alpacas in the Forest for the expert and safe transport from Santa Fe today.  And of course, thank you to Bob and Louise Hazen of Blue Mesa Alpacas for taking such great care of our herd over the last year.

Congratulations! That is so exciting. WOOT!

Could we love Dick Hegeman more? He is great. Called yesterday to check on little Phoenix, the cria we brought back to life the day he dropped off my pacas. Such a nice guy.

Dick was wonderful. It was great to finally meet him and his wife in person. They definately live up to their reputation.
