First day at blogging

I guess the best way to start this blogging is by just jumping in with what's on my mind.

Tomorrow our vet is coming to implant microchips into two babies (cria). This isn't really a very scary thing anymore. He, the vet, has this needle like thing holding the chip and he injects it in the back of the alpaca's head. Usually, the little darlings don't even jump. In order to go to an alpaca show, they all need to be chipped. These two, 6 month old, brown Orion, and 10 month old, white Pollux have a show coming up in May. We have been working on halter training these two and they are coming along very well. To make it interesting to them, we walk down the road, through poles on the ground type mazes, over a bridge, and even take them over little jumps that we make from the horses jumps.

I am half way through a skein of beautiful light fawn alpaca fiber from an alpaca named Beau. This is awesome fiber to spin. The term "spins like butter" certainly applies here. I will list it in my Etsy shop as soon as I finish.
