WLK Silver Stone’s Silver Dollar

We are so thrilled with Silver Dollar. She represents everything we have been breeding for. She has perfect conformation, her fleece is simply incredible. Locked with a micron count of 15.9!! Record breaking in a Suri, but greasy enough not to matt. When you open her up, the bright silver is simply exquisite. … Read More

Dramatic Rescue of Alpacas from a Fearson Predator

The day started quietly enough. Although I am a pretty good cook, I had never attempted baking. As a new member of a country community, I felt that I was somewhat lacking in not be able to put delicious baked goods on my table. A bunch of ripened bananas hung on the counter and I was inspired.
