Off to the Country


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.

Barbara's husband, Ron, picked up the boys.  He's so tall, the alpacas look really tiny standing next to him.

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!

Next week, Silver Lining Joseph will roll up from the Lubbock area.  I'll let you know more specifics as we get closer to time.  If you'd like to meet him in person, watch this space for all the details.

    Thanks for getting Noah a good and safe home especially after what he has been thru the past year. He will be sorely missed. Alpacamama
