Alpaca Chute Complete!

Thanks to my neighbor, Joni, I have a brand new alpaca chute! I saw some plans online and took them down to Joni to look at(she is a woodworking expert). She came up with detailed plans and schematics for the design. We went to Lowe's Hardware, purchased the materials, and began building this puppy. It took two afternoons to build. Sweet... This will be ever so helpful for weigh-ins, toenail clippings, ultrasounds, and anything else we need to do while having the animals hold still for us! Whoo hoo! Thanks, Joni!


  1. Very cool, Cyndi. May I put in an order for one? Do the skittish pacas go in there? I'm thinking only my very tame boys would even go in there, and they don't NEED a chute. Maybe with enough coaxing...

    Great job, though. I want to see it in action!

  2. Funny you should say that. My neighbor is thinking about making more of these and selling them! :o)
