Cria time

Our first Cria arrived 9/27/22. A 15.3 pound boy born to Snow Diamond Felicity and Alpaca Palace's Zinger. And boy does he look like Zinger. Glenn is calling him Little Z for now. The sponsor parents are working on a name this weekend.

The second cria of the season is a 16.5 pound male born to Joey's Stargazer Lilly and Sawdust's Almond Thunder. Both are doing well.

The crias are so much fun to watch in the pens. Little Z stays close to mom while Little Thunder is

Dummy Foal Syndrome


Sawdust's Holly  as of 1/15/22

I was asked today about one of our crias (babies) that had this condition.  So here is what I have learned:

Neonatal Maladjustment Syndrome in Foals (commonly referred to as Dummy Foal Syndrome) is normally attributed to horses.  However, other animals can also have a form of this condition.

Our Sawdust's Holly was born May 29, 2021, weighing 14.6 lbs.  She appeared to be fine when born but within a short period of time, she f

Meet Miss Holly

Sawdust’s Holly was born on May 29, 2021 at 7 P.M. She weighed 14.3 ponds at birth. (Alpaca Mom’s usually have their cria (baby) between 9 A.M and 2 P.M. In the high Andes mountains this gives the cria a chance for the fiber to dry. Unlike other animals, alpaca moms are not able to dry their cria off so they have to dry naturally). We soon discovered that Miss Holly had some serious medical issues – in a horse it is called Dummy Foal Syndrome (you will have to look that up). Since it was M

New "Stuff"

Geez, Don't know where to start. So much going on here at Sawdust Alpacas.

The Store building was delivered Mid March. We used alpaca fiber to insulate the walls, then put visqueen over that. Next came the sheet rock on the ceiling and walls. We then put in all the electrical outlets, boxes for the ceiling lights and fan.

April - we took a trip to Bend OR to pick up furnishings from the store that were donated to us by our friends at Snow Diamond Alpacas. When we got

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 u

FLOODING IN LEMON VALLEY NV

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

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 temperam
