On Dec. 7, 2013 we had about 5 inches of snow and temp's down to 18 degrees.

Great time for pictures!

 

 

As 2012 wraps up, we are working around the ranch. We did not show as much as we wanted. We decided to downsize the herd. We met some awesome people who are now new llama owners. Like everyone else, we had some major highs & some major lows. That is just life.

We put out a request to some special friends in June. We asked for name suggestions for our full Argentine crias that are due. These crias are named after alcohol. The top two for males are currently Patron & Moonshine.

In May 2012 we found out that Shoshone had not yet qualified for her ALSA Halter Champion. It took some time to get that confirmed. So... we cleaned her up real fast & entered her in the Grass Valley Show - VERY LAST MINUTE. She is NOW an ALSA Halter Champion.

In March 2012 we lost PFO Princess Nichola to an obstruction. We did not have her tested but we found frayed baling twine in the pasture she was recently moved to. All of the baling twine is NOW REMOVED

2011 was a great year for Fallen Oak. We did outstanding in the show ring. Bella, Amarula, Shoshone & Zuni received many Grands and Reserves in Halter. We also started to show in Walking Fiber classes and took championships from each show. 

Lakota received his ALSA Halter Champion & Amarula was National Class Champion! 

In July... well we done it... picked up two Suri females from the McRobert's Ranch. We are going to try an Argentine/Suri cross but expect to see them at the Shows until WE feel that they are old enough to breed.

In June 2011, we bid farewell to Arg. Drambuie (he went to Minnesota) and welcomed Arg. Navajo Traveler (formerly Arg. Nemesio) The exchange was made at the Field of Dreams Sale in Nebraska.

February 1st & 10th found the both of us helping out in the delivery of 33 llamas at U.C Davis. These llamas were just a few of the llamas rescued from Montana Large Animal Sanctuary. 

We acquired two gelding alpacas in Jan. 2011. Now we can show people when asked "what is the difference between a Llama and an Alpaca?'

2011 is starting off well! Lakota has now Officially received his ALSA Halter Championship.
