OK so it's been almost a year...I am turning over a new leaf 14 days early :) You know I can't do anything by the book or normal or on time.
It has been kind of a rough year for us on the mountain.
Aunt Rita passed away October 4th 2009 and so soon after dad's passing, it threw me into some kind of weird tail spin. So so sad. I just want to pick up the phone and call her...all the time.
Then there is Landslide who was shone and won 3rd place in a pretty big show (Fall Fest in Loveland Colorado). Thanks to Linda...the sweetest alpaca expert in the universe! I bought him from her and she so graciously offered to show him for me. He is also an ooooh la la alpaca. He is as black as black can be and just as shiny as a new born cria. Thankfully on Thanksgiving day he was at Linda's house...he would have been mauled also...it happened in his pen.
That is all I have left for herd sires. I am looking at a five year old, full accoyo herd sire in Oregon that is priced to sell. I think he will do nicely in my program.
OK that is enough sadness...I need a priest to come and bless this mess!!
Next year has got to be better, Right?
I am expecting 5 new crias this summer, cross your fingers for me! I will post again before that...I'm sure of it :)
