Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

WOW! Those guys are cute...

At least that's what the mares had to
say when our new Peruvian friends drove up today.


Dashing, debonair and FOREIGN, they seemed to catch the eye of all the girls around the red farmhouse!


Of course, none of us can understand a single word
they say but their accent is so cute, we decided to ask them to stay.

Introducing, Armondo and Bebe D'eau. 
Wait, that's a little formal for friends so we'll just call
them Simon and Garfunkel.  After all, they've been walking around
humming since they got here and the mops on their heads remind us of the singing duo.


Simon & Garfunkel are two year old Huacaya Alpacas.


Simon is silver with chocolate spots.
Garfunkel is a light fawn color.
They've been together forever.


We are going to use their fleeces for spinning.  Jared has wanted alpacas since we first went to our spinning teacher's farm. Their fiber is silky and soft!  It's an early birthday present for the boy. {That's my story and I'm sticking with it.}


We are so excited they came for a visit and decided to stay.

  6. The lady we got them from gave us their fleeces from this year. I couldn't believe how soft they were when I got my hands on them. I can't wait to start spinning the gray! Must finish my project with Ziggy's fleece first though.
