(Maple Valley,WA)Alpaquitas Ranch is a full service farm, offering herdsires for breedings, alpacas for sale and farm cleaning services. Services Offered: Affordable alpaca sitting, halter training, and farm cleaning is offered by hourly or daily prices. I also am available as a helper during shearing, herd health (such as giving shots, trimming toenails) and other miscellaneous tasks i.e. farm hand on national farm day. I do have experience with administering medications to animals, birthing situations, and dealing with problem animals. Please visit my website to check out my animals! About the Farm and Breeding Program: Alpaquitas Ranch was founded in February 2010 by a 20 year old college student with the hope that alpacas would be able to pay off student loans. The goal was to raise quality, marketable huacaya alpacas that would be able to add value to the current alpaca market. My breeding program strives to create alpacas with lingering fineness. While there are an abundance of super fine colored males that are 17 microns for their cria fleece; they jump 2-3 microns each year. With this tendency, the lifespan of usable fiber is limited to 5-6 years while the alpaca lives to 20. In my herd, I aim to increase the amount of fine fleece that the animals produce (including the breeding females) as they age. I feel that by breeding for this trait, it will help the sustainability of the alpaca fiber market. About Me: I am a 22 yr old college student currently pursuing a degree in Animal Science- Animal Management at Washington State University! All animals are agisted at Liberty Alpacas (Maple Valley, WA).
