Sunshine, vitamin D and alpacas

Hi, everybody! It’s a beautiful January day here in Maine – the big blizzard missed us (for once), and it’s sunny, reasonably still and kinda warmish – we’re heading into the mid-20s today. So I did what every good alpaca owner would – I booted the kids out of the barn to make some vitamin […]
