The folks who live behind us raise alpacas...so I can stand on my deck and look at the beasties whenever I want.

Isee.   What does a shaved one bring to the table monetarily speaking??


I'm sorry Bill, but I don't know the answer to that. I'm not that friendly with the neighbors that I feel comfortable asking.

They can bring a load of dough for the right genetics:

Over President's Day Weekend 2005, a World Record was set for the highest selling Alpaca
In Phoenix, Arizona two farms partnered to purchase a 3/4 Peruvian, 1/4 Chilean white herd sire,
Snowmass Invincible.  The record setting price was $580,000!

 Of particular interest, the average selling price of the 52 lots was $62,600 with the
average price for females coming in at $52,000.

Holy sh1t is right!!!  I would imagine the black market Alpaca industry must be huge, or about to be huge.  I wonder if they bite if you try to steal them.

I do know what they are afraid of....DOGS!!!. All the neighbors have been warned to keep their dogs away from the enclosure.  A dog that gets inside will try to run the animals down and they will run, very likely killing the alpaca. They are very skittish. Other than this, they are very quiet neighbors and the smell is usually not offensive. The owners do a good job of keeping things clean over there. The alpacas will hiss at you and spit if you bother them...which I haven't done.

WHAT DO YOU SAY WE GET US SOME BEERS AND A SADDLE AND THEN GET MARSHALL TO HAVE SOME OF THE BEERS (CANADIAN STUFF    LOTSA WHOPPIE)

AND THEN WATCH HIM TAKE AN ALPACA FOR A SPIN,I THINK WE CAN CONVINCE HIM ITS AN ENVIRONMENTALY FRIENDLY FORM OF OPE.

WE SHOULD TAKE BETS ON HOW LONG HE LASTS BEFORE GETTING THROWN.

I think some drunken late night Alpaca tipping is in order.  That is providing they sleep standing up.

I wonder if you could shavbe one while it sleeps??
