Alpacas 101

Any subject 101 is a topic for beginners. And since we are at episode 101 (for those that are counting) thought we should have a quick alpaca 101 episode!

  • What is an alpaca and where do they come from?
  • Why do you want to keep alpacas?
  • How many should you have?
  • What might be limiting factors?
  • Where will you get them?
  • Before they arrive
  • Storage
  • Handling
  • Husbandry
  • Growing old together

It is going to take more time and energy than you think, more money and will bring limitations to you BUT… you will get more joy, satisfaction and well being from keeping alpacas than anything else I can think of. It is that alpaca gene again!

Learn everything you can from everywhere you can and be generous with what you know to people you meet in the future, who are where you are now.
