We are delighted to have Sparrow & Stormy back from “sleep away camp”.
After three weeks at Libertas Farm visiting their "boyfriends", we brought them home Saturday night, and now "The band is back together".
If you missed their welcoming reception, or just want to watch it again, you can see it here
Whenever any of the alpacas are away from home, we never know how the herd is going to react when they return. They all know that when we back the big gray van up to the embankment in our field, it has something to do with them. Maybe it's hay, maybe it's a new friend, or in this case, the two girls returned from summer camp.
We knew that Amity would be happy to see Sparrow because they are bonded half-sisters, but we didn’t expect both Amity and then Summer to jump into the van!! That was a surprising and sweet demonstration of their happiness. The alpacas don't normally volunteer to jump inside a vehicle!
Melody also jumped around with excitement at the sight of Sparrow & Stormy’s return; this made us smile and laugh too. Amity, Sparrow, & Melody have been together all their lives, so to see how happy they were to be reunited like this was a joy to witness.
The reason behind Stormy & Sparrow's visit to another farm is that we want to have more cria next year and begin to offer alpacas available for sale. Whether buyers are experienced with alpacas or not, and whether buyers prefer show quality or pet quality, our goal is to find happy and loving homes for the animals.
