ALPACA NEWS

Most days on Kokopele Alpaca Farm are uneventful. We spend the day feeding, cleaning the barn or pastures and watching the alpacas graze, play and socialize, however other days there are happenings that need attention. A new arrival of a cria, fighting males, scheduled breedings, yearly shearing, deworming and general health checks. This blog is to inform and entertain those who have existing farms or who are looking to start a new farm. Owning and caring for our alpacas is truly a pleasure that we would like to share with others.

    One of these beauties is in our barn. The alpacas and llamas don't seem to mind him much but he likes to scare me. Hopefully he's doing a better job than our fat barn cats at catching the critters! Barn owls are disappearing in Ohio

    The arrival of a new cria on the farm is always exciting but can also be a bit frightening if you have very little experience. Be prepared: Gestation is 11 1/2 months for an alpaca or 350 days.  Sometimes crias will arrive 2-3 weeks early
