Alpacas - Huggable Livestock
In 2002 we learned about alpacas quite by chance from a magazine ad. We have always been animal lovers & fell in love with alpacas. We became members of AOBA & got much information about alpacas. We visited several farms in SC, NC, GA, & VA and attended seminars whenever we could. For one year we asked many questions of our new "alpaca friends" & learned all we could. We are most grateful for their guidance and advice.
In May of 2003 our first alpacas were delivered. That was a very exciting day at Lucky Acres Farm. We purchashed 3 pregnant huacaya girls, one intact male, and one gelding. We also have a gelded guardian llama to look after the girls & babies. Our intention is to breed alpacas for quality fiber, excellent health and conformation, as well as a friendly disposition.
As our numbers are so few at the present time, we are not planning to sell any. I hope to again begin to breed a couple at a time. I can not exceed 12 so that our numbers are manageable. there is nothing more fun than a baby alpaca. This is Charlie, our new cria born in May
We had the opportunity to sell our last two males last week, thank you. So we do not have any alpacas for sale at the present time. We are down to just 6 females and one new male cria. We hope to grow our herd slowly and perhaps have more for sale in the near future.
