Alpaca Shepherd Skills and Jeremiah’s New Arrival

Welcome to the podcast for alpaca people!

In this episode, we hear Jeremiah tell his story of the new arrival on their farm.

I also consider some foundational skills for alpaca shepherds.

We need to know specifics such as moving alpacas; holding an alpaca steady without wrangling or strangling; and trimming toenails so they think they have had a spa-treatment pedicure. But underlying those are my suggested foundations of:

  1. How to make decisions.
  2. Noticing and understanding what you are seeing.
  3. How to learn.

What would you include as foundations?
