We Have Moved

Sawdust Alpacas has finally moved from Reno to Fallon NV. All alpacas are now with us in their new home. We upgraded the land from 2 acres to 5. We have had to start the building process anew as we had to leave all our shelters, fencing etc with our Reno facility.

We have temporary shelters and pens for all alpacas. We will be designing new areas for them soon. Alpacas are pretty well situated right now. Wish we could say the same for the house. Lots of stuff to unpack, put up for the house side of the new property.

Come check us out in Fallon NV. We will be have a booth at the annual Spring Fling on March 30 - 4to 7 pm and then March 31st all day at Lattin Farms.

It's been a busy wet winter in the High Desert of Nevada. With all the snow and rain, heavy run off, and all the water pools near here at Swan Lake. It's a clay bed and holds the water forever, or until it evaporates. Some of our neighbors have lost their septic and water well systems. We are just outside the flood zone so we are ok for now. FEMA finally got involved and funding 5 miles of flood barriers around the lake bed and the contractor will be able to pump out the lo lying areas to to lake side .

July Happenings

July 11,2016 Shearing and Mentoring
We had some folks that had acquired an older Alpaca with a horse as a buddy come over here for shearing. I sheared, trimmed toes and his teeth. I also found a fighting tooth that I trimmed off with OB wire. Checked for any microchip and their was none, Gave 2cc CD&t subQ for herd health. He weighed in at 220 pounds. His body score was good but we decided to cut out the grain with the grass hay. He is used as a pet and and has a very good temperament.
This is what we do at Sawdust Alpacas and enjoying the evening.
