Alpacas and the Barley Fodder Trial Run

Dec. 9, 2012 – The crias have their coats on now that snow has finally graced our mountain top.  Mickey has one tray of barley seed growing in the garage in hopes of supplementing the orchard grass hay with highly nutritious, fresh barley sprouts. If all goes well, on day 7 (December 14) a mat of barley fodder will be ready to separate and feed to the alpacas.  Stay tuned.
