More babies!

I'm back again to update everyone about life here on the ranch. Sorry for the delay in posting, but my personnel life was keeping me from updating all of the ranch's social media sites. We have been busy here on the ranch and I also did a lot of arts & craft shows this past summer.

We had a new kid goat born on Sept. 2nd.  He is a Nigerian dwarf goat.  I nicknamed him Houdini as he is small enough to fit through the pen's fence and escapes.

We also have a brand new cria born on Sept. 16th to Lizzie.  She is our eldest female and is an original imported alpaca from Peru.  Here are some pictures of  him and Lizzie.
