We purchased our foundation herd of alpacas just over a year ago. We brought all 7 to the farm in February and by April we were up to 8 with the birth of first cria which our daughter named Marius. Then we purchased half ownership of a Jr. Herdsire with Heart and Soul Alpacas. After attending 3 days of alpaca education in Bend Oregon we purchased a package of 3, so that brought us to 12. Sadly we lost one of our girls that was with cria and so we were down to 10. We have been loving our alpacas so much that we decided to acquire an alpaca ranch. In November we purchased Liberty Oaks Alpacas and brought 17 more alpacas to Structured Chaos. We now have 30 alpacas with one more due any day. We have 18 females and 12 males. We now have a great foundation herd to start breeding fantastic Alpacas to sell in 2017. Structured Chaos farm is now offering tours with great response.
2017 should be an exciting year, with 5 cria due this year. We have 5 alpaca shows to attend and Education With A Destination in Bend, OR. I’m sure there will be many more alpaca adventures this year.
We also were excited to have our first piglets born on the farm. Meg and Hamilton gave us 8 healthy piglets that are the cutest things second to the alpacas of course. All piglets have been sold and it looks like we will have another batch in about 3 months.
