They're Here!

I drove up to Abbondanza Alpacas this morning to greet our newest alpacas. It was amazing to see these three alpacas in person after only seeing pictures of them on the computer.

They were all so perfect and so beautiful! Celtie and Joy became pals on the trip down and never ventured very far from each other (as you can see in the photo below). Peter was very handsome and regal looking and he sung softly to himself as he spied on the mature girls in the pasture next to his pen.

I am looking forward to the girls growing up and seeing what they produce for crias... if they are anything like themselves we are off to a great start!


Finally, after waiting for what seems like forever, this Thursday June 29th the last three alpacas that we purchased will be delivered to Abbondanza Alpacas in Greenville, SC where some of our alpacas are currently being agisted. I can hardly wait to see them in person! They are Heartsong Pure Joy (pictured above) of Heartsong Alpacas in New Jersey, and Enchanted Hill Celtic Woman and Ore Hill Peter Piper of Enchanted Hill Alpacas in Virginia.

The addition of these three brings our herd total to eight alpacas. Well, until next month when Fiore de Pesca is due with her first cria (can't wait for that event either!) and then we will own nine alpacas.

I will just have to wait four more days... four long days....
