This past week we added two gray females to our herd along with a trio of kitties to help police our barn. Gwenhwyfar Macdhui (yes, that is the correct spelling) and Heather Nikos, both from Thistledown Alpacas in Manakin Sabot, VA, will help us diversify not only our genetics, but also color. We can now add gray yarn to our stock of white, beige, fawn, brown, and black. Our three new feline friends – Doc, Watson, & Minnie Pearl (she’s the gray one) – will soon be put to work making sure that our occasional field mouse visitor will understand the feed is for the alpacas, llamas, and pigs and NOT for them. When not busy at work they’ll have a big time socializing with the herd and playing in the hay. We’re sure they’ll provide much entertainment for many years to come!
