This is for those of you, like me, who have either never transported your own alpacas, BY YOURSELF, or if you did, maybe ran short of some seemingly inconsequential item that would be worth more than gold to you at the time you discovered its absence.
All the transporters I knew of were already booked. Do I panic? No way. I've been around. Should be no problem. Maybe consider the... read full article



Purchasing Your First Alpaca

Points to consider:
