4/1/2011 Alpaca Farm Visit

Today our homeschool group got to visit an alpaca farm that also had goats, chickens and a very sweet, tan lab.  The hosts Scott and Brandi were so kind and took so much of their time with us.  The kids got to feed the animals, learn about the upkeep and all that is needed to keep them healthy included medication, teeth filing and nail clipping.  We learned that alpaca's carry their unborn for 11.5 months and some other interesting facts.  They are naturally free from ticks and fleas.  The fur has many uses and is very soft and warm.   Megan who is very much so an animal lover and has said she wants to be a veterinary when she grows up loved this place and and even though we were there over 3 hours she would have stayed all day!!
