Observations  from the Field .  .  .  .   over 20 years on the farm! We are compiling our list...............

1.

Not all Alpacas make a good Pet !

2.

Have a gate open and they will go through it.

3.

Alpacas do get cold and will shake, they will kush to keep their heat in

4.

Alpacas are a herd animal and will seek out a buddy

5.

Give them up to 4 paces away from each other when feeding grain (individual dishes are best, we’ve done this with up to 45 alpacas) and there will be less fighting and in turn, less choke scenarios

6.

Walk directly towards an alpaca and they’ll look to walk away

7.

Smell and check

 your hay…….do not feed moldy hay, it can be a killer
