Alpacas on green grass, finally!

What a sight to see as our herd runs from the barn to fresh green pasture grass! To see them pronking, rolling and just having fun makes all the hard work we have put in for the last weeks worthwhile.
We are letting them out for no longer than a couple of hours right now to let their digestive systems adapt. Soon we will let them out for longer periods and then the whole day.
We at Carrageen Alpacas pride ourselves on making our pastures as good as we can and to improve them each year. Regular applications of lime and fertilizer (designed specifically for our soil) is necessary. It pays off with better health for our animals.
