The Wait is Over!

Apologies for going dark on Blinq for most of the last week. Was out of town mentoring would-be journalists, then back hunting down column material and shopping for galoshes.

So busy this afternoon, I nearly deleted a timely email from my friends in the Alpaca Owners and Breaders Association. Regular Blinq readers know how excited I've been about National Alpaca Farm Days. Whoo, hoo! The wait is over!

Alpaca Owners and Breeders Association (AOBA) invites you to visit their member farms and ranches on National Alpaca Farm Days on September 24th and 25th.  This is a unique opportunity for the public to explore the many aspects of the alpaca livestock industry in the United States and Canada.

From meeting these beautiful, inquisitive animals in person to experiencing luxurious alpaca products at individual farm stores, there will truly be something for everyone.

While most alpaca farms welcome visitors throughout the year, National Alpaca Farm Days are sure to include special activities and educational opportunities.

Let the oohing and ahhing begin.
