Alpacas and Kids – Building Trust in Each Other

No way will I walk over that!!
It’ll be okay Princess.
No problem… I knew we could do it!

Unbelievably it took this little girl all of ten minutes to gain the trust of this little juvenile.  It was her first time on the halter and lead. At the end of 30 minutes she was walking her through, and around obstacles and jumping over  12 inch logs. Alpacas and kids a natural fit!!

All About Fiber Workshop

Horse Mountain helped to organize and attended a workshop “all about the fiber”.  We are now ready to put to use our new knowledge to help on shearing day when we need to sort and grade our fleeces.

Learning about fiber biology is important to understanding the end use for our fleece!!
