Fall is a perfect time to visit Windrush Alpacas. Our alpacas enjoy the cooler temps just like us! And they love to have visitors too! You’ll fall in love with alpacas when you visit with our very special herd on Open Farm Day, Saturday October 12, 2019.

While you are here you can tour the farm with owners Rosemary and Ric. They will answer your questions about raising alpacas and let you get close and personal with some of the herd. We also have llamas, a jersey cow named Newark, Sabre, our horse, chicks, guineas, cats and dogs!

We even have beautiful stuffed animals for young and old alike!! Make sure you stop by for refreshments too!

Do you wish you had an alpaca of your own? You can have a very special alpaca to visit whenever the farm is open if you become an Adopt-A-Paca© member. You’ll get an official certificate, a picture of your alpaca and occasional letters from them too! Learn more about our Adopt-a-Paca© program when you visit.

Red Full Moon Alpaca Yoga

Filed under: Yoga with Alpacas — Tags: , , , — alpacalady @ 8:46 am

Join us for another enjoyable evening of Full Moon Yoga with the alpacas of Windrush Alpacas and support Operation Cool Down!

Operation Cool Down provide fans, window units and water to those who are in need. We are honored to support this hard-working and hard giving charity with $5 of each registration.

August’s full moon is commonly known as the Sturgeon Full Moon but we have a distinct lack of Sturgeon in Clovis, NM! So we are using the alternative name of the Red Full Moon, which describes the sometimes reddish appearance of the moon as it rises through the sultry haze of summer.

Enjoy a gentle yoga practice with our fantastic instructor Terri Golder among our endearing alpacas, with starry skies and a wonderful view of the full moon (weather permitting). This is an adult event – ages 18 and over only, please.

All yoga experience levels are welcome (we love to introduce new people to yoga!).

Light refreshments will be provided after the event and the farm store will be open. Please note that we do not have public restrooms at the farm.

Bring your yoga mat, a towel or blanket to go under your mat, water bottle and of course your camera or cell phone for some unique pictures. (A limited amount of yoga mats will be available for those who don’t own one.)

Please purchase your tickets in advance to help us plan. These yoga events are very popular too so your advance purchase will guarantee your spot. Tickets are available at http://www.windrushalpacas.com/store/vendorItemPage.aspx?&id=25651&title=red-full-moon-alpaca-yoga

The alpacas hope to see you there!

Have you always wanted to learn how to spin?

Are you looking for a cost-effective way to ease into spinning without the expense of a wheel?

Do you have a spinning wheel but struggle with drafting your roving?

Then this class is for you!

On June 15 at 10 am Windrush Alpacas is hosting a class so you can learn how to use a drop spindle to make your own yarn.

Shannon McKerlie will be your instructor and will guide you through the steps to get you spinning. A drop spindle is small, but you will be amazed at what you can spin on one.

Shannon spins beautiful yarns on her drop spindle and is a clear and patient instructor.

During the class, you will be able to see the beautiful Windrush alpacas who will be providing your roving.

Tickets are $15 and include instruction, 2 ounces of alpaca roving to spin, and a drop spindle to take home. Class is expected to last for approximately one hour.
