Seems that no one has any money in this economy. One way to acquire "different" bloodlines in your alpaca herd is to work out a "let's make a deal" deal.
Trade! Trade your male for another quality male. Trade two ARI registered males for a female alpaca or llama.
This gets around the "I'm broke" situation and allows both parties to benefit.
Think about it.
BTW -- sold two unregistered female alpacas yesterday. They are beauties, my Hiawatha and Stephie. Going to an outstanding home -- that's the good news.
