Some much has happened!

It has been several months since our last update. It has been a very busy summer.

First, we took out fleece to Echoview Fiber Mill to be processed in May. We got back our final product last week. Very pleased with the results. Can't wait to see the magic my sister-in-laws are going to work!!! Ready to grow the farm so we have even more yarn and roving.

Getting ready for alpaca farm days. My sister-in-laws are knitting like mad, I am working on craft kits and dryer balls, and our tea bags are being made. Excited to see what kind of turnout we get this year, our first farm days!!

Water and heat. Our summer has been out but we have been fortunate that the heat has not be too terrible...until now!!! It has been miserable for the past 4 days and the alpacas and not liking it. We have fans on high and the water buckets are being refilled three to four times per day. The best sight the alpacas see is the sprinkler turning out. They run to the oasis and fight over the best spots!!!

The cooler weather is coming soon which means it is time to start getting the winter fields ready and the crias need to start weaning. All this means long weekends of work!!! We have another pasture to fence, a barn to put up, plus winter wheat plowing and planting! Anyone interested in volunteering to help?!?!?!?!?

Keep checking back for pictures of finished alpaca knitted items for sale and pictures from Alpaca farm days!
