Our aim is confident and fulfilled owners of happy and healthy alpacas. We want happy and healthy owners too but that’s for another day.
Let’s think about confidence again and in particular, where you get yours from.
Knowledge and practice are key – know enough and do it often enough and you will feel confident. This could be moving alpacas, removing brambles from their fleece, trimming toenails, or body scoring your herd. The principle is the same – know enough to get started, learn as you go (in small steps), and keep doing it t keep your confidence.
Farm update – a wet few days here but not too cold. Keep your eyes and nose on alert for flystrike.
Go spend some time with an alpaca, Steve
