Here’s a photo of Mickey and Evelyn taken December 1, 2012, in front of the new New Mexico Alpaca Breeders Billboard. If you’re traveling on I-25 through Socorro (south of Albuquerque) look for the billboard. We’re wearing first edition (2009) alpaca fiber felted hats from Resistol. We bought the hats at the Great Western Alpaca Show and they are signed by the developers, Tom and Judy Kania of Our Field of Dreams Alpacas in Shawnee, OK. Thanks to Kathy Richardson and David Hunter of Puerto del Sol Alpacas in Socorro for donating the billboard site. NMAB paid for the display. It took over a year to get the billboard display, but we’re pretty darn proud of it.
Kathy, Larry, and David hosted the NMAB quarterly meeting. After the gift exchange, NMABers sat on hay bales on the NMAB float. David spent hours decorating a hay wagon with carefully cut out stockings for each NMAB ranch. The lights worked just in time to join the other floats for the parade down the main street in Socorro.
Aspen Ridge Alpacas is a proud member of NMAB.
