Two of our alpacas have graduated to their plush retirement out in the country.
Noah and Gizmo left yesterday for the new chapter in their lives, called "Greener Pastures," as they headed south to Goldthwaite. Our friend Barbara is populating her large ranch with some pampered 'pacas and llamas, who will enjoy lots of grass and camaraderie. Gizmo and Jonah were Barbara's first alpacas, and they boarded here for years. I'm so glad she gets to have them on her own place finally. She's waited a long time for this.
Ron and Barbara's brother, Paul, convince Noah to talk toward the trailer.
Gizmo and Noah settle in for the ride to Goldthwaite.
Gizmo is always up for an adventure. He'll have familiar friends to spend the rest of his life with.
Barbara reports today that everyone made the trip just fine, and are settling in to their new digs. I couldn't have let them go, if I wasn't absolutely sure they'd have a fantastic life on the other end. Enjoy your new boys, Barbara!
