Past Friends

These are some of the members of our family that we have loved and lost. They have all been wonderful companions and we miss them dearly.

 Ajax vom Donataul X Dietza vom Norden Stamm

You know how there is always one dog in your life that is THE one? Alexa was it for me. She stole my heart the moment she walked out of the crate at the airport as a puppy and will always have it. I lost her too soon to bone cancer at the age of 7 in 2001. She was my best friend and companion, and after 13 years, I still miss her with a deeply aching heart. To you, my Girlie, there will never be another like you.

"Lacey" was s a granddaughter of Two-Eyed Jack.
I lost Lacey in February '09 to an acute, untreatable illness. I truly thought she'd be here with me for another 10 years, at least. We were together for 21 years, and had that special bond. I will always cherish our time together.

Bullet was our rescue Dobe, who loved, played and protected just as fiercely as the rest, even though he was crippled at a young age. He lived to be 12 years old, despite the physical handicaps he endured.

Beige Huacaya


Boomerang is our gelding companion/fiber boy. He's got very soft, beige fleece. He's much taller than an average Alpaca, so he makes Vince look very small! He's got a mellow personality and is easy to work with. He and Vince get along very well. Boomer passed 10/13 at age 14

Attitude vom Gelfling


Tude was the daughter of my beloved Alexa that I kept. She was an excellent watchdog and companion at home.
Tude passed away in September 2008, 1 month shy of her 11 year birthday. She is missed, especially by Bret.

Mocha Blur

Gorgeous blue eyed, chocolate agouti doeling born on 2/8/09. She is by Windy and Curly. This little girl is VERY small, VERY cute!
Mocha Blur was my ultimate, perfect Pygmy girl and my favorite goat of all time. I lost her tragically in Jan 2010. I have such a huge hole in my heart from her loss.  With her loss, I've lost much of my desire to continue with my goats.
