Alpaca Boys are at Biscuit Hill B&B

Our new boys are finely here. They are still a little stressed from their trip, but are eating well. The humming you hear in the back ground is them communicating they are a little upset. We are going to keep guests outside the fenced area for about a week so they can adjust to their new place here at Biscuit Hill B&B. Here is the vedo I took right after they arrived today.

They did a great job, and we know all of our guests will love giving them practice with their new skills. If Dean gets their pen finished in time, they will be in there new home here at Biscuit Hill next Wednesday, Nov. 10. We can't wait for our new additions to arrive.

Boerne Fiber Festival

The annual "Kid In Ewe" Fiber Festival is November 12, 13, & 14 at the Kendall Country Fair Grounds. Mark your calendar and come out to see how the coats of Alpacas, Lamas, and Goats are spun into yarn. There will be live animals to view, vendors selling goods made from the spun yarn, and food. Our 2 new additions will not be there, but Dean & I will. I want to start selling Alpaca yarn, and goods at Biscuit Hill B&B once we get a few months as proud owners of these beautiful animals. See the festival's website for all other information. This should be a fun event, so even if you are not staying at our Bed & Breakfast, you should head out there at least for a few hours.
