Grandkids at the farm

Halter training alpacas and meeting "Mr. Miller," the llama; hauling hay bales, feeding grain.

These are just a few of the things that our younger grandkids get to do when they come to the farm. Drew spent a few days with us and he was taking an honest bath every night -- washing off the barn dust and "hay head" that working in the barn causes.

In the first photo, Brianna (age 3) is walking with Yukon Quest, a wonderful Canadian registered alpaca. You can see the delight on her face as she proudly shows off her "leading skills" to her mom.

Andrew (also age 3) really bonded with Mr. Miller, a new llama boy at our farm. He even said (as he left the barn) "I LOVE Mr. Miller." Mr. Miller is a cool gelded male who is trained as a carting llama. Plus Grammy is working on her "hat making" skills. That hat, modelled by Drew, is from our alpaca girl, Magnolia. It's incredibly soft and VERY warm.

It's such a joy to share these wonderful animals with our grandkids. Hopefully we're making some pretty cool memories for them.
