Sad news about Preston the alpaca

I went to a sell by my house tonight. My mother was there. There were two young male alpacas there. I have always wanted one, but never thought I could afford one. When they came in the ring, my mother asked me if I wanted it that she would buy it for me if I did. I couldn't believe it. Of course I said yes. Now, I have a beautiful alpaca in one of my horse stalls for the night. I have the best mother. My son hasn't got to see him yet. I can't wait. I know he will love him. My husband can't see why I wanted another animal. I don't think he will ever understand. I will put him with the goats. Now, I want more.
I am trying to learn as much as I can. I would love any advise you all can give me.

I am going to spin his wool and make things with it. I have always wanted them for their wool. It is so soft. Plus, he will guard my goats. And most important he will be a loving member of my family. They are very loving animals.
Congratulations! I LOVE alpacas!

And they're not useless! They will protect other livestock, you can harvest their wool, and the babies bring a mighty fine price!

Good luck with him!
THank you. I will try to get pictures of him tomorrow. We got him for a really good price. The owner said he shouldn't have sold him for that. Now, I want to find him a girl. My little sister really wants him. The guy told us that he has a female that is about to have a baby any day. That he will sell. I think my mother may get her for my sister.
Awww!!! He is adorable!!! Oh and the alpaca is kinda cute too!

I would LOVE to have an alpaca but the sign at my driveway says No Vacancy!
He really is beautiful!! You will have lots of fun with him...spinning the wool is an awesome idea!
