On Watch, Alert Alpaca

On Watch, Alert Alpaca

Alpacas are known as
quiet and friendly animals...
providing us soft alpaca fiber.

Many breeders of both sheep & goats
(and chickens too!)
use alpacas as guard animal
protectors for their flocks.

Alpacas are often 'On Watch'
while the other animals graze.
Alpacas guard against foxes,
and many other predators,
which is most important during
lambing & kidding season
when the farms are abundant
with newborn lambs and kids.
