Ivanhoe the Alpaca, Carol B
Ten of us gathered on a bright, chilly, sunny day at the Harvard Alpaca Ranch. We learned about the 31 resident Alpacas who were just as curious about us as we were of them. There are more female Alpacas than males at the ranch and Ivanhoe (pictured) has his harem. We even met a blue eyed female. All of the animals have names as well.
The owner of the ranch gave us a very informative tour where he answered our many questions. We learned among other things, what they eat, how they sleep, and the fact that they each instinctively know to take turns guarding the herd so the rest can sleep.
We then headed to the Ranch’s store to view and buy socks, hats, and wool. Afterwards we enjoyed lunch at the Harvard General Store.
