100% humidity!

AHHHH the pacific NW in the fall.... where we go from extreme fire danger, to you can't get a match to light out in the rain in about 10 days.... Rain, Rain, Rain.... the alpacas don't seem to mind, they are happy that the grass has sprouted up green.

We shuffled pacas around into different pastures yesterday, getting the boys settled in for their winter down the road ~ 4 miles.... opens up the pasture here at home to move the dams as we wean the crias.

So after a few days of cleaning gutters on the barn and covering the hay feeders all is well here at the ranch.

The guest units are busy again this weekend.... everyone agrees this is a wonderful place to spend a couple of days.... give us a call and plan your visit! if you hurry the fall colors will greet you!

Happy Halloween

The boys and I finished up trick or treating and made it home about 7pm... to find 30 alpacas out and in the driveway! AHH! At least they never go far.... shake a little grain and they all come running in.... In general alpacas won't "test" fences... but they love to explore when the gate is accidently left open!
