Ice in the alpacas’ stock tank made me realize I still hadn’t done all the work in preparing for winter. Dad here, with some more work around the ranch. If you remember, we gave the alpacas their own stock tank back in July. Since then, the weather has gotten colder, and we need a way to keep the water from freezing up.
I purchased a stock tank heater from the local farm supply and dropped it into the stock tank. That was the easy part.
Alpacas are curious (you can see Tulip watching me in the back ground). To keep them from being shocked as well as to keep the moisture out, I also purchased a coupler that encases the connection. We’re good to go now!
