Bil and Julia now have 22 alpacas on site: 18 females and 4 males. I think 4 or 5 of the females are pregnant...so come spring, it will be nutty there! The boys have the back pasture and the girls are living in the barn, but finally the pastures are drying out enough so the ladies can get outside more.
All of the alpacas look great. My little boy, Atom, has recovered from a rough start and now looks beautiful. His fleece is lush and soft, and he seems happy and healthy and alert. And as usual, Brownie is doing great. She isn't going to be a big girl, but she's beautiful.
We also visited with the chickens and the quail, and left with a carton of eggs that will be omelets tonight.
I can't wait to see what's next at the farm! Shearing day is 4/29.
