They're cute! I'd love to have them, or your pasture! Serious grass envy here!

Thanks for the pics, glad the new alpacas are doing so well. I think I like Buster Brown's color best.

If the scours don't go away for Ras I would seriously think cocci. Two months is just about the right age.

The event at my school went great! Onyx and Al did pretty good, they only spit a few times. Also I got to bring home 7 little chicks who my veteran broody Cirra has adopted ! Overall the event was awesome and over 1500 kids came!

Thank you, alpacas are very interesting animals to say in the least. My sheep are mixes, mutts so to speak. They don't have to best fiber and I would NEVER use them for meat. Right now they are mostly pets, but I am pushing to get some papered animals. I'm just not settled on a breed quite yet (any suggestions are welcome).

Love your journal!
Thank you! I absolutely love your new nubians, they are to die for :love

Sounds like things have been going really well!
I know right :D =D I'm just happy all of them are healthy and happy :)

I'am not at all a expert but I can tell you the breeds we had and are going to do. We had a Katahdin Doper cross ewe, She was bred to a purebred Kahatdin ram, so her lamb was %75 percent katahdin. Joy was super cute and gained weight super fast. When she was three months old she was 60 pounds and was fed hay pasture and a handle full of grain here and there. They both didn't need sheared which is always nice. They come out with some of the most interesting patterns. I only milked her mom twice but I got 2 cups form both times and that was three months into laction and with the baby on her. We sold them and went completely goats. We are moving soon and my dad said we could get St Croix.
