    I Have My First Alpaca

    Job doesn't mind if I put a lead on his halter, but he doesn't like his face or ears touched. I can pat his neck while he's eating his food, but that's about it. I might be able to get a back scratch in, but that's only if he's feeling generous. :lol: I'm happy to just stand close and talk to...

    I Have My First Alpaca

    Yes, I am in Ohio. :) I'm happy to learn anything I possibly can about Alpacas! I did tell my friend that hers (she named him Simon) will need a companion, too. She put hers in with her goats, is that Ok? I'm in Jewett, Ohio. Not sure how far that is from you.

    I Have My First Alpaca

    The non-USDA approved thread of animal husbandry...tell us your ideas!

    Well, I guess I don't make it over here much anymore, but I'm thrilled to see this thread! We took in a pony, named Emmy, a couple months back. Her coat was dull and she wasn't friendly at all. She's on 100% pasture. That's it. We don't supplement her feed, and we've not medicated her at all...

    I chose the royal palm turkeys because they aren't large and they reproduce naturally and they are very friendly!
