Vanny joins the herd, permanently


Yesterday, as usual, Dad and Mom let the boys into the “exercise paddock”, and then let Vannny out to join them. Bravado and Vanny had a spitting match or two, also par for the course, then everyone settled down to graze together. When Dad went to bring everyone in for the night, Vanny was kushing (laying down) with the rest of the boys in their paddock, calm as can be. So, he decided to let him stay.

This morning everyone was just as chill. In fact, Vanny seems to be enjoying full membership in the herd.

I don’t think Vanny will be going back to his bachelor pad. Mom and Dad’s slow integration technique worked like a charm, allowing us to consolidate the herd and do some work on the fences.

In case you were wondering, fence work never ends on the ranch. Like taxes and death, it’s a certainty.

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.

  2. I think so! The life of a herdsire seems very lonely. It’s good that Vanny can be just one of the guys now.
