Some of the articles in this category are published with the author's permission; however, many of the articles were composed by yours truly (Kally) for various speaking engagements.  The opinions and ideas set forth in them come from my real life experiences and through trials and tribulations.  They are what we have found work best for us, our alpacas, and our area of the country.  We at Cushy Alpacas are in a constant learning mode and every alpaca owner is different.  Talk to as many as you can and form your own opinions and ideas.
