Alpaca Ranching: T + 9

The alpacas arrived on New Year's Eve.; nine days ago.  It's been a fun week-ish getting used to living together.

We are feeding twice a day and mucking once.  With 12 alpacas, mucking once each day seems to be ok for now.

Each group of alpacas has agreed to the location of their poop pile.

We had an emergency with our oldest female.  Which means we met our vet, who lives up to his accolades.

We weaned the three crias.

The Dog we Should have Named Houdini has been working hard to change his name to Alpaca Dog.

We've had lots of visitors and are getting to know which feed stores are best for what.

I wouldn't change it for the world.
