In the fall of 2013 we adopted a mated pair of alpacas from a sheppard friend who was retiring.  Jill uses the alpaca fleece, which is shorn once a year, to spin into yarn.

In August 2015 Abigail and Boris had a cria.  We have named him Percy (he was born during the Perseides meteor shower). 
He is very curious and will always come up to us for a good sniff/snurfle.

When Boris and Abigail arrived at BGF we suspected that Abigail was pregnant.  Their first baby, or cria, was born on the Summer Solstice - June 21, 2014.  We named her Suvi (an Estonian word for summer).  Sadly, Suvi died from complications with bloat when she was just three months old.
