Spring Lamb

We have had eleven new lambs born this Spring, and yet again, thanks to the vigilance of Ricky the alpaca, there has not been one loss to predators.  Others who use alpacas as guardian also report 100% success.  Given the impressive track record of alpacas in protecting stock it amazes me that so many  local farmers still persist in using poisons and guns in an inefficient, ineffective  and costly attempt to solve the problem.  The old habits of the past die hard so it seems.
