Happy New Year to all!
A barn was constructed on our 35 acres in Hesperus, CO. Some of the animals even have had a chance to stay at the barn this fall while being transported from the summer stay at Navajo Lake Alpacas in Ignacio, Co or to shows. They all seem quite happy with it. It has got to be the breathtaking views!
8 new cria are due for the 2011/2012 birthing season and 2 have already popped their beautiful heads out. Gunssmoke was born early on Thanksgiving Day. Graycee Spirit arrived on Dec. 9th. She lives up to her name of spirit. This gorgeous little girl is our second cria from Altitude and she shows attitude! Graycee had some issues with her little feet being turned under and walking on her ankles on three of her legs for her first 6 days. Then the miracle of nature takes over and in one day she got all of the feet under her properly and now she runs like the wind and already is exhibiting the same tall statuesque stance as her proud dad, Altitude. A beautiful medium rose grey with the classic white face, Graycee holds a very promising future.
We made more new friends in 2011 and once more realized the wonderful camaraderie of the alpaca community. Thank you to our new customers that have chosen to breed their females to Altitude. Our sincere wish is that the cria are all you hoped for! Thank you to all of our friends we have made through the years. You have all helped us along the way in one fashion or another.
As we head towards our 5th year in business, we are looking forward to another exciting year. We have more cria due and cannot wait to see them. Our plans for building a house in CO are starting to come together and we are doing all in our power to be moved full time to Hesperus, CO by summer of 2012. Heck, we even bought a tractor this week (can you say tax deduction!).
Check with us often to see what we are up to and how the build and move is progressing but most important, watch for our new babies. Looking forward to see lots of you in the show ring this next year for some friendly competition and to see old friends and meet new friends.
