This Saturday, the Alpaca Farms in Jay will be part of National Alpaca Farm Day. There are four alpaca farms in the Jay area. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend since I have to work. I really wanted to visit one of the alpaca farms in the area, so I called Trudy at Elfenwood Alpacas to make an appointment to come for a visit.
Yesterday morning I went to visit the new cria (baby alpaca) at Elfenwood Alpacas. I got to meet "Terrawee" it means "Little Earth Gift"and she was only 10 days old. She is so cute and so soft.
Trudy and Seth, the owners, had a very busy morning. They had nail trimming to do, medicine to give, and behavior watching to do. They wanted to see if Terrawee's mom was ready to breed yet. She must have had a headache because she spit at Lucian. Maybe this weekend.
Elfenwood Alpaca Farm has 11 alpacas. I was only able to see 10 of them, one is away on a romantic vacation. I got to see 6 girls and 4 boys. They are all so beautiful. Thank you Trudy and Seth for letting me visit!
