lots of color in the herd
Hand spun yarn
attentive dams and great cria
Just some of our alpacas are listed on this website, we actually have over 70 animals in our herd... we have a wide variety of colors and ages in our herd. Breeding/show stock as well as fiber/performance animals. Excellent bloodlines and fiber. White, brown, black, grey, multi-colors as well.
How did we get our name, you may ask? We started with miniature horses and less than an acre.. . The logo was designed with a miniature horse silhouette and the name we came up with. Fast forward to our youngest daughter coming home from a day's work in a local yarn shop exclaiming the qualities of alpaca yarn and the purchase of two boys (one of whom was Jack Daniels) from another local ranch. We quickly acquired some females and Jack Daniels proved that "liquor is quicker" and sired mostly females his first two years of service. Now the horse was moved to the side and an alpaca was added to our logo.
We are now both full time alpaca ranchers on a ten acre property with pasture, trees and in our home town of Turlock, California.
We do most of our showing in the Alpaca Lama Show Association (ALSA), our favorite is in the Performance arena. LMM Shaggy has several Grand Championships under his belt and LMM Ameilia Earhart not only has multiple Grand Championships, but was also the 2015 California State Grand Champion. We have many Alpaca Owner Association banners in our herd's pedigrees as well.
Educational support! Alpaca genetics simplified! Pedigree evaluation assistance, Agricultural accounting, Nutritional guidance, Show support and... Fun! Reasonable pricing, especially on multiple animal purchases. Discounts on classes conducted at our ranch.
Alpaca yarn, Alpaca fleece, Rovings or batts for spinning. Alpaca gifts and clothing. 4H and FFA animals & training.
We also use natural dye sources to create even more colorful combinations of yarn and materials for fiber artists. Our goal is to breed for soft, delightful fiber in a variety of unique colors and combinations.
Although we are full time on the ranch, but please schedule an appointment as we do also attend shows, farmer's markets, school tours and other events off the ranch. Weather plays a part in scheduling as well.
