more rain!

It rained all night. What a mucky mess it will be out there. At least I got the hay unloaded, and covered up very well.

I added a bunch of new photos. I think you can see them all here

RAIN blah!

what a bummer the rain is! I bet the ducks are loving this rain!

IT was raining at 1130PM what I got up and I was thinking what is outside getting wet that should NOT be. I couldn't think of anything, until I got up at 1AM and realized all my NEW HAY was outside getting wet! ONly 6 bales are really wet I bet, as they were on top. But I should have unloaded it yesterday.

Now I need to unload it this morning before more rain moves in.

SO much to do and so little time it always seems that there is to do what you need and want to do!

Green Green Green 2nd cutting Orchard Grass

Today I had to go get some hay. I ended up somewhere in Caroline County. I loaded up 20 bales or so on the truck, without a trailer.

This hay was so green, that it may be not only safe but ideal for human consumption. The alpacas love it. I should have gotten every last bale they had, but I always like to try the hay from someone new before I get a pile of it.

These hay bales are a whopping 60-65 pounds, most of them. I hope it lasts 14-28 days,
as I have some old round bales left still.

Alpaca should eat mostly hay and grass and very little grain despite the fact that they love some grain. We are not eating the alpaca so it is not like feeding grain to cattle you plan on eating. And cattle that is grass fed is better anyways!

Isn't love grand and without limit?

Before sunrise today, Of course the roosters were crowing but, Angel jumped the fence or something unknown and went over to see her old sexy friend Misha.

Well lucky for us Angel wasn't able to get into the Big Boy Alpaca pen or she may have gotten what she was looking for, from 6 big boy alpacas. Angel spit at Logan on the 23rd which means Misha failed to get her pregnant last time he was with her.

Anyways Angel was over there by the Big Boy Alpaca fence flipping her tail, filling the air with fragrant girl alpaca pheromones or something, because as dark as it was, Misha just followed his nose and was over by Angel trying to get over the 5 foot 2x4 no climb fence. Misha was jumping up on the fence nibbling on Angels ear, who was saying come on big boy, but Misha could do nothing but oogle and hold off the other big boy alpacas claiming Angel for himself.

Too bad for Misha as he would have proved himself if Angel was with cria but she isn't. And it looks like Angel is going to run around the stable a few times with COMET AND HOPEFULLY HE CAN SETTLE HER.

Finally a black baby girl alpaca

At last another black female cria! Tipper finally dropped her sometime today. Ginger said to watch her today. I didn't even notice how fat she was looking.

I guess Logan is the PROUD DADDY!

I looked out there earlier and saw the cria but it didn't dawn on me what had happened,
DOH! Anyways I snapped a few photos and will upload them to the main furbelow farms alpaca website at It looks like we need to add some new pages, we used to have a new additions page but I don't see it anymore.

Ginger has so many pages on the website and has done a fantastic job on it. She never ceases to amaze me with all the things she does!

won't you look at where weve been

We've been very busy. We have had several new additions this year and are hoping for a few more before year end. I think this year I am going to be an alpaca for halloween, that way all I have to do is go to the door and hum for carrots.

When I come back in my next life I think I want to be a goat, wont you look at those Cashmere Bucks!

I'm a little slow this morning, but I am back after being lost in the woods, I think they had to cut down 257 trees to finally find me and get me out!
