UW Small Ruminant Club Farm Day

UW Small Ruminant Club

UW-Madison Freshman Veterinary Program Small Ruminant Club planned a day at our alpaca farm on October 7.  It turned out to be a gorgeous sunny day.  Dr. Mike Etter of Lodi Veterinary Care was also at the farm to discuss his role with alpaca farms in the area.  The students asked a lot of great questions, and hopefully we were able to make the day enjoyable and entertaining.  The students planned a terrific picnic lunch which we enjoyed before the final highlight of the day, viewing a breeding, which they thought would be about a thousand times better than identifying smooth muscle in histology.  Yesterday we received a photo of Magic and Faith along with a thoughtful thank you card.  :-)

Hi Jim & Jan ~ We just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for opening your farm for National Alpaca Days ~ we had a great time & enjoyed meeting some of your beautiful & sweet Alpacas.  My mom had enjoyed Christmas Shopping in your store...& Ella & I loved every minute of being on your farm (: She has been sleeping with the suri bear she chose since Saturday!

Ella actually made a special little outfit for her Suri bear to wear today (October 4) in honor of her birthday ;-) pretty cute!

I love how in the next photo the sun seems to be shining positive energy down on them ~ beautiful!
