Here is an un-solicited testimonial from a recent customer, Becky Phillips of Peaceful Valley Alpacas in Minnesota.


"It's fun, entertaining, and informative.  I felt we were back on your farm.  We will be watching it over and over until we can get all that you were showing.  One time just isn't enough to get all the information you have to offer. "

 

 

Here are some comments from customer, Tara Beatty of Yellow Rose of Virginia Alpacas,

"You all did a GREAT job on the video.
... terrific, great, educational, yet entertaining "

Tara also commented on how useful it was to see our footage of a llama with neurological damage caused by Meningeal worm and how using Kate McKelvie's method of giving worming shots helped her to do her own more efficiently. She wrote:

"I decided last night to go in alone and do it like the other Kate. And guess what? I got the shot in! That was followed by a victory dance."

Here is a comment from Unique Alpacas in Finland.

"It covered the basics widely and particularly the birthing bit was a great success amongst the training course attendees here."

Important Note! We're not just showing you the good comments. If you purchased our DVD and still had a question about some aspect of basic alpaca care, we have a page on this site for answering those questions HERE!
