Early May, however, we saw an ad for an alpaca herd for sale. It was kismet! The owner was selling them out of love and we wanted to love them! The owner wanted them to all go together and we wanted them all. So we made arrangements to buy all 11, but we'd pick them up once the fences were fixed. We also signed up for shearing duty for our new herd, but also at another farm's shearing day. It seems that everyone helps each other out when it comes to shearing.
