Do you have a passion for making things entirely by hand or appreciate it in other people? In my teens and twenties, I got a thrill out of being my own mechanic on my old '75 Mustang. Yep, I've changed a few water pumps and brake pads. I have sewn every stitch of handmade rag dolls with a needle and thread (no machine stitching), and I prefer to cook from scratch. Isn't it much more rewarding to gather family and friends to put in fence posts, and raise barns? So naturally for me, prepping the fleece, learning to spin, and then making things from the alpacas' luscious fiber is my idea of happiness! -Kaylen

It has been a very warm and calm winter here so tending to the alpacas has been relatively routine. Most of our excitement has been around the baby bunnies. They are five weeks old now and getting so big! One has blue eyes!
The ears are starting to flop.
I think Dad must have been fuzzy!
Quite a change in such a short time, right?!

We had a beautiful holiday season and an especially blessed Christmas. I hope you did, too. One of our joys was the chance to rescue a rabbit from a difficult hoarding/puppy mill situation. There were over 200 animals of which 54 were bunnies. I was only in a position to take one with our pet load a bit high. However, volunteers who helped at the rescue site mixed boy bunnies with girl bunnies. You know what that means!
