Windrush Alpacas Open Farm Day

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!

A visit to Windrush Alpaca is not complete without stopping in at our Farm Store. It’s time to start stocking up on super warm alpaca socks and slippers, hats and gloves, scarves and shawls. 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.

Open Farm Day is for all ages! Fun activities keep everyone busy on Open Farm Day! There is always something new to learn and see at the farm, so if you’ve been here before, please come again – and bring a friend! Stop by anytime on Saturday, October 12 between 10 am and 3 pm!  Light refreshments will be served!

It’s always free admission and free parking. Windrush Alpacas farm is located just 1-1/4 miles south of Brady on CRM. Watch our Facebook page for updates www.facebook.com/WindrushAlpacas.

Flower Full Moon Alpaca Yoga

Pink Full Moon Yoga at Windrush Alpacas

 

You asked for it and we listened! Windrush Alpacas is hosting an evening of moonlight, peace, calm, yoga, fun and alpacas!

*Check in Time: 7 pm

*Yoga session will start around 7:30 pm and will last approximately one hour.
*Registration Fee is $10 per person. At least $5 of the registration fee will go to our chosen special cause – A  new prosthetic leg for Thursday the alpaca. (Please see details below)
*Light refreshments will be provided after the event
*Farm store will be open after the event
*This is an adult event and we request no children, please
*Please remember we do not have a public restroom at the farm

Terri Golder will lead us through a gentle yoga class among the alpacas by the light of the Flower Full Moon (clouds permitting!). We ask that people arrive at 7 p.m. so that we can get everyone situated for a 7:30 p.m. start. The class will be approximately one hour in duration.

It will be dark when you leave the farm, so it is suggested that you bring a flashlight to help you cross the alpaca pen. You will be walking through the alpaca pens to get to the area where the yoga will take place so make sure you wear suitable shoes. You may also want to bring a towel to go under your yoga mat.

If you do not own a yoga mat email us at windrush@plateautel.net or message us through our Facebook page and we will see if we can find you a mat to borrow for the evening.

This event is to raise funds for a very special cause.

 

Thursday’s Story:

 

Thursday is a remarkable Suri Alpaca who belongs to my friend Kathleen Callen of Zena Suri Alpacas, Grove, Oklahoma. In November 2018 Thursday had an accident while getting out of Kathleen’s trailer and badly injured both of his front legs. Unfortunately, Thursday ended up having one leg amputated but it was hoped that the other leg would fully recover. 

Kathleen managed to purchase Thursday a custom-made prosthetic leg using funds she had saved for another project and Thursday has done well with his prosthetic leg. Sadly, Thursday’s remaining front leg would not heal, and it recently had to be amputated. While Thursday is managing to get around, he has to twist his spine to do so, this is uncomfortable for him and over time this will not be good for Thursday. 

Thursday badly needs another custom prosthetic leg to help him walk properly and Kathleen needs help raising funds to purchase the leg. Thursday is a sweet but very determined alpaca, who loves massages and flirting with girl alpacas! It is Kathleen’s hope that once Thursday is fully recovered he can become a therapy alpaca to help others who also have encountered difficulties in their lives.

You can follow Thursday’s progress at Zena Suri Alpacas Facebook page.
