Bringing home the alpaca

Home > News

Zoe and Misty, both due to “unpack” in mid-August, have returned home after spending the early weeks of winter off-site. Bringing them home means they will have plenty of time to settle in and feel secure before the births of their cria. Although they are due in mid-August, at this time of the year they are likely to be anything up to 6 weeks overdue as they wait for better weather – so we actually expect the creation date to be mid-September.

We have a policy that all alpacas leaving or arriving on our property have faecal egg counts/worm drenching before they are allowed out to graze, and photo shows Misty and Zoe in the pen awaiting their results.
