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

Peeping Toms

The alpacas are pretty close to the house.  I can see them from the kitchen window and from other areas that look out toward one of the pastures.  We catch their attention sometimes and they'll stand and watch little Peeping Toms.  They also like to watch T.V. !   I think the bright color and movement puts them on alert.  Here Jolene and Missy are watching the Superbowl Pregame Show! 

They were pulling for the "alPACKERS" of course!
