"Babies and mommy look good. The little on Evie is a cute color combination. I think Rebekah is precious but then so is Sarah so guess I am a bad one to say good or bad. Congrats on triplets."

"Totally NOT a seasoned breeder......but I would think that he is a little lonely (they are very social) and you might consider getting him a friend (another wether would be perfect). Be careful with the amount and kind of grain you are giving him…"

"We waited until ours were almost two, and the play-fighting with each other got a little scary towards the end. If I ever have two intact male cria in the future, I think I'll do it by 18 months. I only have one intact male now, and there…"

"Thanks Deborah here they are! > We def. plan on gelding them as soon as possible, taking into consideration what is best for them. From what I have been reading and have been told, the males should not be gelded until they are about 12-28…"

Deborah Niemann-Boehle replied to Michelle Lyon's discussion alpacas
"I just wanted to mention that if your alpacas are not gelded, they probably should not be with female goats. I know a shepherd who lost several ewes before he realized his intact guard llamas were trying to mate the ewes when they were eating hay.…"

Kim Peters replied to Michelle Lyon's discussion alpacas
"We keep the llamas and alpacas together, but not with our goats who are right by the barn, in a very protected environment. We have friends who keep their llamas with their goats."

Kim Peters replied to Michelle Lyon's discussion alpacas
"Alpacas are generally happier if THEY get to choose when they are out and when they are in their shelter so a 3-sided shelter is better in that respect but they can learn to be stalled at night if that works better for you. Alpacas can sometimes be…"

Michelle Lyon replied to Michelle Lyon's discussion alpacas
"Oh....and when you mention the kicking thing.....do you keep your alpacas, llamas and ND goats together during the day (in a corralled area) or are they separated all the time? Thanks in advance!"
Feb 26, 2010
Michelle Lyon replied to Michelle Lyon's discussion alpacas
"Thanks for your encouragement Kim! We were considering giving them their own stall in the barn to hang out together as opposed to putting them in with the goats at night. Do you think that is a good idea? The more I read about them......the more…"

Kim Peters replied to Michelle Lyon's discussion alpacas
"We breed alpacas, llamas & Nigerian Dwarves and definitely would not consider using alpacas as guard animals. Unlike llamas, they are just a little too timid to do an effective job. Also, some alpacas do kick, so be careful housing them with…"

Hello Michelle!

How cool! I was homeschooled k-12!! Very cool!

Glad you've joined us! While I do not fit into the category of "Seasoned Breeders", being a goat trainer not a breeder, I'd be happy to try andanswer any questions you may have on other goat subjects!

Again welcome!

Hi there! Thanks for the warm welcome. My name is Michelle and I live on a little gentlemens' farm in CT with my husband and four children. We are just starting our journey with Nigerian Dwarfs.....we have 2 does who were just bred in Dec, one more who is going to be bred next month.....we have 5 doelings and a great "heat detector" wether. :) Very excited to learn more from the seasoned breeders here, pick your brains and have fun with this!

I homeschool my two youngest, I am in the process of selling two online businesses (trying to take a few things off my plate to give more attention our little herd......I can be a little quirky, but I keep it real. I do have a blog (Psalm 104:24 random thoughts from a not so random mom) also where you can learn a little more about me.

Can't wait to have some time (usually the early morning hours) to poke around and join in on the discussions.

Thanks again for making me feel welcome~
Blessings~
