Time for Reflection!

We were blessed with a great summer of visitors to the ranch and getting our new ranch store opened. Visitors were able to check out all of the new crias born this year. We had 9 lovely crias this year and 7 of our boarding alpacas also presented lovely crias. Yes, it kept us very busy! Our ranch store was met with high praises to all who visited.

The fall show season was very fun and successful. 4 shows in 4 weeks kept us on the road but were are blessed with great caretakers for the alpacas. Our breeding efforts are paying off with the winning of Color Champion and Reserve Color Champion banners.

As the holidays are now here, please remember that we are available by appointment for ranch tours and shop the store! Give the gift of Alpaca!!

Proud members of Harvest Hosts! We love to have RV guests stay on our ranch! Come for the big views and enjoy meeting our alpacas (and seeing the crias pronk)!

The goal of Pleasant Journey Alpacas is to constantly improve our alpaca herd. This is achieved by breeding our females to excellent herdsires, be it our own or selective chosen outside breedings. Improvements result in excellent fiber characteristics, conformation and personalities.

If you are a new breeder, we want you to feel comfortable with Pleasant Journey Alpacas and know that we will be there to assist you every step of the way from helping to set up your ranch, choosing the right alpaca(s) for you, teaching daily care and herd management. Owning alpacas is a wonderful part of your life and very rewarding, especially when watching the new little cria pronk for the first time or seeing the breeding that you have selected produce an alpaca that is superior to both the dam and the herdsire.

We have a beautiful 35 acre ranch with awesome LaPlata Mountain views and room for the alpacas to roam. We offer agisting to other ranches. Located only about 6-8 hours from the Denver area - c'mon down and see us! Looking for a great place to stay?
