Spinning at Farm and Ranch Day

Horse Mountain joined with 4 other farms to educate the public about alpacas and the wonderful fiber we harvest from them each year. We had samples of products made from their fleece along with spinning, weaving and knitting demonstrations. Alpacas were there for “hands on” learning and even an obstacle course for “Korey” to go through!

Great Western Alpaca Show

Mr. October

We are heading to the Great Western Alpaca Show tomorrow (Thursday the 29th).  If not the biggest show in the country  – it is pretty darn close.  We will be taking Collin’s Princeton and Mr. October to show along with our booth display. Good luck boys!  Nievo wanted to come but he’s a little busy with the girls;) right now.
