Have a gate open and they will go through it.

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

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

8.

Even alpacas get arthritis but there are things you can do to help them be more comfortable.

9.

Meningeal Worm is a very real and deadly parasite to the alpaca. 

DEWORMING is Needed, so learn the needed vaccine protocol.

Alpacas Learn, you just need to spend time and work with them to gain their trust.
