The Farm has several alpacas: Curly, Racer, Pacheco and Sky.
Curly is quite the draw with Farm visitors and classes. Don’t you want to just run up and hug Curly? Curly was adopted from Windswept Ranch, a petting zoo in Tehachapi, California, which actively works to find good homes for needy farm animals.
Racer and the other alpacas make a sweet humming sound, which is pleasant to hear. It’s a sign of comfortable and happy alpacas.
Pacheco and the other alpacas make great “watch animals” on the farm. Any time there is an unusual sound, or stranger walking near or through the farm, or dogs barking, or people walking near the farm at night, Pacheco and the other alpacas will for sure notice! Alpacas are the first to notify the caretaker of uncommon events at the farm.
Sky and Racer and the other alpacas rarely spit at Loma Vista Farm! This is funny to hear, but it’s common for alpacas to spit when they are irritated. Sky, Racer, Pacheco, and all the other alpacas are human-friendly and seem to love Loma Vista Farm.
Sky loves children. Judi, farm caretaker assistant, recently noticed that Sky got out of her pen when a group of kids were visiting the farm. Sky approached the group of kids out of curiosity and enjoyed them so much that she hung out with them for a while. The kids surrounded Sky, patted her, and hugged her, and Sky loved every minute of the attention.
