the mini farm

photos 019 (WinCE).jpg

Here's a picture of an alpaca standing in what once was my yard. You can see the chicken coop and the barn off to the right, and the beach-house-in-the-woods manor directly behind the alpaca. That fence is made of vinyl and it never needs painting--- but it's an all-day job to pressure-wash it.

I believe that I liked that place better than anywhere else I've ever lived. I had 5.5 acres of land, goats and chickens, a 1/2 acre garden and good neighbors. What more could you ask for?

I miss it.


Looks nice. Too bad bc caused you to lose it. Good place to raise a kid.

Nothing like a nice house that sits on good acreage - even if it has a pack of alpacas - or even a swarm o' llamas - living there.

When you get cold, you just go out back and grab a sweater off'n one of them fine beasts.

That looks like a beautiful farm.

I see you're a DAWGS fan. From what I've read on your blog you might appreciate this story.

As a UGA graduate, I could get yearly season tickets that were half-way decent.

My ex sued me for custody of the season tickets in the divorce.

I made a deal - traded the tickets for the kids.

True story!

What I wouldn't give to have something like that for my son to run around in.

Why did you have an alpaca?

I didn't have an alpaca. The woman who bought my farm after the divorce got rid of my goats and brought in the alpacas. I think you can make money selling the wool.

Yea, Alpaca farming for wool is fairly profitable. Supposed to be as soft as cashmere and lighter than goats wool.

Goat still tastes better.

...Trying to make a Neverland/Michael Jackson joke, but it's just not coming to me.

There was an alpaca farm across the road from my place in Baltimore County. They're pretty cool critters. My dog LOVED going over there for a visit.
