Good-bye and Hello

It's a bittersweet day at the farm when you sell an animal. You know you are in this business to eventually turn a profit, but it's still hard to sell a friend and watch them go. Yesterday our dear, sweet clown Marc left for his new home in Indiana with a really nice couple. He is going to be a companion to their herdsire. I hope he enjoys his new friendship and family.

Today though proved to be a really good day. The last of our girls finally came home. :o) We purchased Misti in August just after she had delivered her first cria. We choose to leave her at her farm so she could be bred, but I never imagined it would take this long to bring her home.

Well, she made it, along with her cute little man, Robin Hood. They are safe and sound and ready to pass the winter in our barn. Hopefully next spring she'll deliver me a beautiful little silver baby (she is bred to a silver grey). Keeping our fingers crossed!

In the meantime, I will just enjoy the fact that our entire herd is home. At least for today.To find out more about Misti, Robin Hood or any of our other alpacas...
