We called and scheduled a visit to the Albuquerque alpaca ranch. What a fun little adventure. We were given a private tour of the ranch and got to spend time with the alpacas up close. They were as friendly as dogs, yet softer fur. They were adorable. My daughter even got to walk one! We both fed them and one kept trying to give us kisses. They have a lovely little store with all clothing, scarves, hats, stuffed animals, yarn, and even soap made from alpaca fur. There was no pressure to buy - but we couldn't resist!
