Everyone, this is Wrangler. Wrangler, meet everyone.

I was covering an alpaca auction last fall for the Scio News. When three-month-old Wrangler came into the auction ring with his black mama, Glory, I couldn’t sit on my hands.

And that is the story of how we came to be alpaca ranchers.

Wrangler is my favorite of the six. He is adorable, friendly and curious. Alpacas are not fond of being handled or petted, but Wrangler will sniff noses with me and I can pet him all over while he’s eating grain from my hand.

Happy Groundhog Day!
