I'm one step closer....
I went to a seminar at a local alpaca farm today. They owners were well informed, nice, and clearly care about their animals and their industry. They talked to us for four hour, and shared a wealth of information, and then took us out to see their animals. They even took extra time to talk to me after everyone else left. They gave me some more advice, and suggested a possible co-ownership with them on an animal. If anyone in CT is considering entering the alpaca farming industry, they should definitely start with a seminar or farm visit at New England Alpacas (nealpacas.com). I'm getting closer to getting my first animal. I can't wait to be apart of the alpaca industry myself, even if it's only in a small way at first.
I'm a dog walker and dog trainer (now), among other things. I teach a little music part time too. I'm also a knitter, a spinner, and I'm very committed to fitness. I'm married to an amazing man who is supportive of all of my projects, especially my new venture into alpacas. Oh, and I'm also a huge fan of Lost, the tv show on ABC.
Spoilers ahead, if you haven't seen the most recent episode of Lost, don't continue reading. This week's theory comes to you courtesy of The Transmission, a Lost Podcast available on iTunes.
Locke was not Locke long before we realized it. As far back as season three. Back when he blew up the submarine, and had those interesting verbal sparring matches with Ben, Locke was really the anti-Jacob.
