Louise and I moved to Santa Fe, NM from Florida in 2005 and established Blue Mesa Alpacas in 2006. Our herd quickly grew from 4 alpacas to over 70 in all, including both huacayas and suris.
In addition to our herd of alpacas we train horses, primarily gaited Rocky Mountain and Peruvian Paso horses. See our horse website www.bluemesaranch.com for more on our horses. Other animals on the ranch includes 3 Great Pyrenees dogs (Pyrs make wonderful guardian dogs for alpacas), 2 indoor cats, 2 barn cats, and 2 goldfish in an outdoor fish pond! Last but not least, our collection of animals includes 2 super-cute little mini-mules, Romeo and Juliette.
