The Boys Find a New Home

Riphaeus and d'Artagnan went to their new home a week and a half ago. We had high hopes for these little guys, but unfortunately, they are just not what we are looking for in herdsire quality males on our farm. Because we have 7 babies due on our farm this year, we thought it best to make room and find them a new home since we won't be using them in our breeding program. Luckily, they are both friendly and absolutely adorable, so they found a good home where they will be pets and companion to a horse who just lost his horse buddy due to colic. We will miss Riph and Dar, but luckily we can still visit them as they went to live with one of my co-workers, who happens to be an animal lover too. So far, they are doing well in their new home and getting lots of love and attention from kids who take riding lessons at the farm. I even got to see pictures of them posing with lots of kids on someone elses FaceBook page today. I am so glad they went to a good loving home!

I love Dar's personality. He has the most fun of any alpaca I have met. Glad they found a nice home.
