attentive dams and great cria

Just some of our alpacas are listed on this website, we actually have over 70 animals in our herd... we have a wide variety of colors and ages in our herd. Breeding/show stock as well as fiber/performance animals. Excellent bloodlines and fiber. White, brown, black, grey, multi-colors as well.

Looking for fiber boys or "pasture ornaments"? We have them and can offer you some great deals on packages.

Although we are full time on the ranch, please schedule an appointment as we do also attend shows, farmer's markets, schools and other events on and off the ranch. Weather plays a part in scheduling as well. We have two "free" weekends a year - Memorial Weekend and National Alpaca Farm Days(the last weekend of September).

How did we get our name, you may ask? We started with miniature horses and less than an acre.. . The logo was designed with a miniature horse silhouette and the name we came up with. Fast forward to our youngest daughter coming home from a day's work in a local yarn shop exclaiming the qualities of alpaca yarn which led to the purchase of two boys (one of whom was Jack Daniels) from a local ranch. We quickly acquired some females and Jack Daniels proved that "liquor is quicker" and sired mostly females his first two years of service. Now the horse had to be moved to the side and an alpaca added to our logo.

We are both full time alpaca ranchers on a ten acre property with pasture, trees and in our home town of Turlock, California. We have had such an increase in interest in alpacas and their fiber, we have now sold our mini horses and concentrated on alpacas and llamas!

We do most of our showing in the Alpaca Lama Show Association (ALSA). Our favorite is in the Performance arena. LMM Shaggy has several Grand Championships under his belt and just won the coveted title of California Grand Champion Alpaca at the 2018 California State Fair! LMM Ameilia Earhart also has multiple Grand Championships, and was the 2015 California State Grand Champion. We have many Alpaca Owner Association banners in our herd's pedigrees as well.

Educational support! Alpaca genetics simplified! Pedigree evaluation assistance, Agricultural accounting, Nutritional guidance, Show support and... Fun! Reasonable pricing, especially on multiple animal purchases. When you purchase an animal from us, you receive mentor-ship, discounted breedings from our herdsires and discounts on classes conducted at our ranch.

Alpaca yarn, Alpaca fleece, Rovings or batts for spinning. Alpaca gifts and clothing. 4H and FFA animals & training.

We also use natural dye sources to create even more colorful combinations of yarn and materials for fiber artists. Our goal is to breed for soft, delightful fiber in a variety of unique colors and combinations.
