I am Carl. I was the first baby born at Trinity Farms Alpacas. My name is a tribute to a friend who died in a boating accident not long after I was born. His name was Carl Schneider. My owners still miss him.
I do believe it started with my request for 2 gelded males. I thought it would be great to spin and do needlework with my own fleece. Weeelll John fell in love with a showgirl. Sienna captured his heart and we took home our first few alpacas. We now have 5 boys and 9 girls, but this is ever changing. While most are show quality we have a few that are not. We have bred a few over the years so look into the alpaca pages for info about each one. We have had our high points and low points in starting our farm. There have been many tears of joy as well as tears of sadness. John delights in showing off alpaca babies and adults, bringing them in for people to touch and play with- especially for kids. This property was pretty much forest when we started with it. He had some help in the beginning to clear the land. He dropped many cherry trees as alpacas are "allergic" to them. He then planked each one with a chain saw and built the barn by himself. No small feat when you look at the barn. He then built the barn for the boys and did the same for the farm store.
