Life as a blur

Some time over the past couple of weeks we officially passed the halfway mark of our 2013 birthing season. That is to say that there are now more crias on the ground romping around the pastures than there are due females in our maternity pens. I can’t honestly tell you when it was, or the . . . → Read More: Life as a blur

CCNF results from the AOBA National Fleece Show

The Heirloom Fleece Cup from the 2013 AOBA National Fleece Show in Denver, CO.

I have to say that not personally being in Denver, Colorado this past May for the AOBA National Conference and Show was rather disappointing! It wasn’t because I loved the idea of driving 20+ hours with a trailer full of . . . → Read More: CCNF results from the AOBA National Fleece Show

CCNF Results from the PAOBA Breeder’s Showcase Fleece Show

2012: 1st Place Finishes, Championships, and Specialty Awards

It’s that time again, when we look back at the previous year’s show winnings and howl at the moon for just a moment or two. 2012 marked Cas-Cad-Nac Farm’s 15th anniversary and as one might reasonably expect of a program that has been around that long, our winnings reflect the cumulative effect of careful and . . . → Read More: 2012: 1st Place Finishes, Championships, and Specialty Awards

Taking stock

With our return home this past Sunday evening from the Vermont show, we concluded four straight weekends of alpaca events. Though fun throughout, the last three weekends have involved Jen and I being away from home three days of each week and sleeping in hotel beds of variable quality. At least Sam and Max were . . . → Read More: Taking stock

The natural course of things

I'm free! Musette enjoys a sunny morning on one of the paddocks off of the south side of the CCNF Arena. She and her dam have been out and about with the rest of the herd since late last week.

Some relatively big happenings here on the farm yesterday.

For one, our female Boheme . . . → Read More: The natural course of things

2011 1sts, Championships, and Specialty Awards

Yes, it’s the shameless pat-ourselves-on-the-back-for-walking-in-circles post here at CCNF Chronicles. For years a similar edition of the hard copy newsletter would hit the mail around the 15th of January filled with show results and glossy photos. Well, kind of the same idea here except that I’m two weeks late, the photos aren’t glossy (pixely?), and . . . → Read More: 2011 1sts, Championships, and Specialty Awards
