New Born Cria
Join us in welcoming our first little adorable cria this summer! It's a boy - son of Khemmie and White Knight! Look at that little crook of a tail - he often holds it like that, especially when laying down. He weighed 17 lbs, 4 oz. - an average size for crias. He was born early in the morning before we went out for chores. I found him about 7:15 AM and he was already dry, walking, running (sort of), and nursing well. He doesn't have a name yet, but if you want to suggest one, please leave a message on our web page. We'd love to hear the suggestions!

Besides having our newborn, farm tours are available all summer for families, individuals, kids groups, adult groups, etc. Prices are $5 for those 16 and over, $4 for ages 5-15. Best days to visit are Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Shearing is over and we now have bags of fleece to skirt, clean, sort and sell. If you love fleece and love to process your own, we have the fleece for you! Our precious alpacas produced beautiful ones for you - fawn, gray, black, russet brown, etc., with fineness and density that you will adore.
If you're interested in classes, demonstrations, fiber, and/or finished fiber products from our alpacas and others, the Estes Park Wool Market is the place you want to be on June 13-14. We'll be there with alpacas and products. Come by and introduce yourselves.
Our 4-H kids continue to prepare for the Boulder County Fair. They had some great successes with training this week and it adds to the enthusiasm of course.
And, the Erie Farmer's Market begins on June 18th, from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. I'll be there with fleece, bats, rovings, yarn, clothing, rugs, etc., etc.
So, never a dull moment! Come visit and become acquainted with alpacas.
