All the adult alpacas at the Field of Dreams Farm have been sheered, given special hairstyles and the fibre was sent away for processing. This is our second year visiting this unique 10-acre working farm.
We were amazed at their trimmed-up appearance and delighted to meet the seven new-born alpacas. Without asking many questions, we could see Marilyne Lorenzo had been working steady and her love and attention given to all the animals reflected in the healthy, relaxed atmosphere within the herd. She had been on duty helping deliver babies for six or more weeks and now carefully watching over them like their second mother.
These animals are full of curiosity, grace and elegance. There was no spitting at each other or anyone. We were smitten by the playful, friendly babies and really want to see more of them.
The boutique in Lorenzo’s home is full stocked for the winter season. For information and an appointment to visit the boutique call 250-249-5423.
