Our new herdsire arrived a week ago and it took him about 5 minutes to be "top dog" lol. His name is "Archer"...the brother to our "Robin Hood" who passed away last month. It makes me so happy to see him every day. I miss Robin so much, but it helps a little to have a small part of him still here with us through his brother :) He has his first date with our girl Anna in 2 more weeks...and then it's 11 LONG months of waiting. ;) Our colorful girl "Fiesta" is due to go to NY sometime in the next couple weeks to meet her beautiful boyfriend. Fiesta is the most adorable alpaca on earth with her big fuzzy ears and huge eyelashes. I'm really excited to see what she will give us too :D

I'm also excited to announce my new Foxy Fiber Club...available thru my etsy shop

I've put together a few different packages for all spinner/felter needs. One club available offers 4 oz of yummy alpaca fiber delivered every month for 12 months. The other packages offer smaller amounts or washed fiber instead of raw. This would also make a terrific Christmas gift for the special fiber-holic in your life! ;)

Yesterday I received the custom pillow I ordered from mybonnie on etsy... She created it from a photo of herdsire that passed away a few weeks ago. Bonnie's work is amazing! I will treasure this pillow forever :) If you have been thinking about a pet memorial... please visit her shop :D
We are busy getting ready to be a part of our first National Alpaca Farm Days Sept 26 & 27. AOBA uses this event as a way to educate the public about alpacas & their fiber. I'm really looking forward to having people stop by and meet our fuzzy friends. I will have my booth set up with fiber gifts for sale...and I'll also be spinning away.. so if you're in the area..stop by and say hi! :)

A Lazy Sunday appears fall is arriving. It's nice not having the blistering heat..but I don't think I'm quite ready for wearing sweaters yet! :P

I've been busy this weekend taking pics and listing to open my new etsy shop Sage Pets is all about treating your dog to luxury snacks..featuring carob..a wonderful chocolate substitute. Carob tastes, smells & looks JUST like chocolate..but it is completely safe for dogs! :)

Tomorrow I will be spinning some alpaca and gearing up for our Open Farm Days at the end of September. We're really excited about offering this opportunity to people who want to learn more about alpacas and what you can do with their fiber.

Well, time to dig out ANOTHER sweater and snuggle up with a good movie ;)

Welcome to The Sage Fox

Thanks for visiting my blog! This is where you'll find all the latest news on our alpacas, my newest fiber creations, etsy news and just anything else going on around the farm :)

I've added alot of new fiber gifts to my etsy be sure to check it out!

Right now my Felted Fox Clutch has been included in this week's round of Etsy Voter. Please take a minute and vote for my foxy fellow! :D

There will always be alot of alpaca photos on this blog because I love taking pics of our alpacas...and I think they love having their picture taken lol. This is a pic of my colorful girl Fiesta. We're really excited to have her bred this fall and look forward to her cria next fall. We're expecting our first cria (baby alpaca) any day now from our girl Anna. This is a first for our little we're extremely excited (and anxious! lol). Along with the good comes the bad I guess...we've been so happy seeing the farm coming together with the fences/paddocks and bringing our newest alpacas home, but then we had a great loss last week when our herdsire Robin Hood passed away :( I miss seeing that spotted face greet me at the fence every morning. ;( We're very blessed though because Robin's breeder has offered to let us bring Robin's brother into our herd. It won't take away the pain of losing him, but it will help maybe having just a part of Robin still here with us :)
