Yes the days events were well worth the visit BUT an actual birth of this amazingly docile and beautiful animal....well this was the crowning moment as it was all caught on video....which you can see in all it's WONDERFUL NATURALNESS in the Michigan Magazine TV video presentation below!
CAUTION although there is beauty in this moment...it is quite graphic and should be viewed with this in mind.
“We are extremely excited to host National Alpaca Farm Day for the third consecutive year,” said Chris Nelson, co-owner of the Crystal Lake Alpaca Farm. “The ‘alpaca lifestyle’ is truly a rewarding one, and we love being able to share these enchanting animals for a fun-filled day with everyone who visits our farm.”
During the event, guests will have an opportunity to mingle and take photos with the farm’s alpacas, participate in activities, watch local spinners demonstrate fiber arts, learn about these exquisite animals and browse the alpaca boutique.
From 4-5 p.m., owners Chris Nelson and David Nelson, DVM, will host a free Alpaca 101 seminar for those who are interested in starting an alpaca farm. The discussion will focus on the financial and personal benefits of investing in an alpaca farm.
Alpacas originate from Peru, and produce the most luxurious fiber known to man. It is warmer than wool, softer than cashmere, hypoallergenic, extremely durable and does not itch.
