It’s Labor Day weekend and I’m extremely antsy about moving forward with our move. The weeds are taking over the place and it looks like crap around here. The weeds are too big for the weed eater to take down and too close to the fences to mow so I’m really not sure how to go about cleaning them up other than one by one by hand with the machete & that would be nearly impossible.
We’re seeing progress with sales of animals slowly but surely. I finally got word this week from the guy that is buying Lil for his daughter that he is also going to be taking Mickey. That leaves Waco left to sell before all the horses are gone. They plan to pick up Lil & Mickey this coming weekend. One of the Vet Tech’s at our Vet’s office has some interest in Waco…she said her aunt has been looking for a nice horse for 2 years to replace one she lost & hasn’t been able to find one that she feels comfortable with. I’ll contact her this week and see if she wants to come and look at him. It’s going to be a sad day when Waco leaves, that’s for sure.
Alpaca sales are happening slow but sure as well. I have sold Sterling since I wrote last. He will be going to his new home to mid-Missouri this coming weekend. That little guy will surely be missed, but I’m comfortable with the sale and know he’s going to a great home. Three animals leaving the farm this weekend…I guess that’s pretty darn good.
We have an email blast going out to the entire AOBA (Alpaca Owners & Breeders Association) membership this coming week & of course we’re hoping to be inundated with calls, emails & sales. We’ll see how that goes. We’ve reduced our prices pretty drastically so we’re hoping for a good response. Wouldn’t it be nice to clear the place out with one last email blast?!
