    Last owner had dogs, cats, sheep, a horse and chickens, I have the same animals, lol, so they had little issue getting along.
    My animals had a harder time, lol.
    Their horse was sad for awhile that they left.

    Need some cria??

    Kinda seems like a person would remember if they had their alpaca gelded. I too expensive to slip one's mind. And of course you can't tell just by looking "under the hood" like you can with many animals.

    Seller said they may of been bred in June, by a different male, grey I believe, so I was ready to deal with possible babies, I just wasn't wanting to deal with a stud. =/

    Have a FB buddy wanting girls. So if the girls have boys, then I'll keep the boys and sell her the mommas after weaning. If they have girls, then I'll sell her the girls and buy 2 boys. Much rather have boys born....
