New Arrivals Up the Cuteness Factor

New Cria Alert!

In the past few weeks we have had the true delight of welcoming some new cria (baby alpacas) into the herd.  We have a new little Suri and a Huacaya, with another on the way any day now.   We haven’t named them yet – we want to wait and get to know them first!  But golly they are precious.

Here’s our new little Suri girl:

It’s amazing how quickly they’re ready to be out and about!

Our little Huyacaya is so brown and fluffy we almost can’t deal with it.

This little cutie is still a fairly skittish, so we don’t have a great close-up yet, but you’ll just have to trust us when we say the little fluffer is totally adorable.  We love how proud mama is striking a pose for the camera!

It’s a good thing these babies are born ready for winter!  Crisp autumn nights decided to arrive at last, so the fluffiness is both cute and functional.  Good job, nature!

Be sure to stop by and meet the newest members of the family – we’d all love to see you!  Tours are available by appointment each weekend.

You Know What’s Cute? Crias!

We have a few new faces here at Breezy Hill Farm, and we couldn’t be happier about it.  The crias and their mamas all are healthy and doing fine.  Also they are cute.

First up we have Kronos.

We named him after the Greek god of time because he ignored the calendar and arrived a whopping SEVENTEEN DAYS LATE.  Maybe he was just waiting for Mother’s Day, because it seemed appropriate.  He was born to our beautiful Rhapsody, who no doubt was thrilled when he finally arrived!  He’s a big and funny young one – you’ll probably be seeing more of him before too long.

Next up we have a very new cria, just born yesterday (June 8): the cute, fluffy Eros.

He is our first Suri cria, and we are delighted to welcome him to the farm. He’s a cutie, and we anticipate that he will be quite photogenic.  His mother, Faith, thinks he is perfect.

They are both so fluffy and wonderful – you should probably stop by for a visit and see for yourself!

Breezy Hill Farm – Announcement for Fiber Enthusiasts!

Breezy Hill has had a busy Summer this year! With so many gorgeous alpaca, sheep and goat fleeces from Spring shearing, we decided it was finally time to start our workshop project.
So, we temporarily closed our onsite boutique for expansion to include 70 additional square feet of retail space and a fiber workshop. We are thrilled with the end result and hope our visitors will be too.

We reopened the boutique in August and starting in November will be offering fun classes for all sorts of fiber arts. Whether you have been curious about getting into fiber art, are an avid enthusiast, or simply looking for something creative and fun we hope you will keep posted to our site for schedule postings. In addition to facilitating classes, we will also be inviting local artists to guest teach. More details to come.

In the meantime, feel free to check out our Breezy Hill Knitting & Crochet Club on www.meetup.com. Membership is free and open to all fiber enthusiasts beginner to seasoned experts. We meet monthly (usually a Sat/Sun) and have a great time visiting with the farm animals then getting down to fun conversation, snacks and of course – fiber projects. Hope to see you at one.

A Star is Born!!!

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of our beautiful, doe-eyed Kanella! She was born on October 8 and is quite the beauty. She was a healthy 15 pounds with a very high IgG level – very healthy and ready to get up and go. Kanella (greek for Cinnamon) has the sweetest face and very crimpy fiber.
