Welcome to 2021... As interesting as the last year was, we were busier than ever. So I am going to introduce you to our herd, one animal at a time! Bear with me, this may take a while. We now have 75 alpacas and 6 llamas. So I decided to start at the top of the list- alphabetically. So...
Meet Acorn. Well technically, his name is Uta, which is Lakota for Acorn. He is kind of the color of an acorn. Acorn is 7 years old and due to some recurrent health problems, he has recently moved to the Lost Boys area. The Lost Boys area, as we affectionately call it, started out as our junior/ male weanling area. But it currently houses our deaf oldster, Ryan, our recovering Gaston , our ailing llama Jack and his apprentice, Goliath, along with the youngsters who are awaiting the right time to move in with the adult males.
Acorn has handled this transition with his usual good nature. He is a sweet boy with lovely reddish fiber. A single skein of his recent fiber in a 2 ply sport weight yarn was enough to make a soft, warm beanie.
Call 262-391-8114 to schedule a tour and meet the rest of the herd.
