The internet’s favourite alpaca herd finds a new home
After two weeks of uncertainty about their futures, the alpacas that Ottawa-area hobby farmer Mike Caldwell posted on Kijiji for $250 have found a good home.
Five of the six — Lucy, Stormy, J-Lo, Rocky and Snowflake — are now in the care of Ruth Vanderlaan, who operates a petting zoo on her farm in Winchester Springs, a little less than an hour’s drive south of Ottawa.
Unfortunately, the sixth, Vinny, of an indeterminate age but by far the herd’s elder statesalpaca, didn’t live to meet Emoji the emu or any of the other animals at Vanderlaand: The Barnyard Zoo. He died last Friday, two days before the deal was struck and the move organized.
