In the Meadow has eight very diverse alpacas. Each member of the herd have very different and unique personalities.
Beau is the oldest member of our herd - he was born in 2011. As you can see he is white and provides us with the fleece we use to dye for our felting classes and workshops. He is a sweet boy who looks out for the rest of the herd and keeps the more rambunctious members in line.

Tucker was born in 2014 and is dark brown. He his fleece feels like smooth silky butter. He is very curious and love to instigate the rest of the herd into wrestling matches.

Dislikes: Being disturbed at meal time.
Ben was also born in 2014. He is the only black member of the herd and his fleece is a wonderfully shiny and soft. Ben is very timid and prefers to stand at what he deems a safe distance while still being curious about what is going on. But hold out some grain and he is all in!
