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!
We had fun joining with 4 other farms to promote alpacas and their wonderful fiber.

Breedings for 2011 crias have already begun:
- Nievo is busy juggling four dates this month: Alma, Boco, Analia, and Jane. What a guy! He’s got even more girls out of town.
- Mr October has two out of town dates who are picking up the tab, then will come home to 5 more girls: Queen, Desi, Laurie, Chimes, and Malia.
- Princeton will woo Noel and Jade and then go out of town to meet new girls.
- Prosperity will be traveling to Avatar’s mountain hideaway in June.
- Winter Star is on vacation with Revelation.
- Summer is taking a well earned rest.
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.
