|Don Juan has moved on to another farm but will remain in our
hearts forever. Donnie was one of the first alpacas we bought at
only one year of age and certainly impacted our farm more than
any other animal. Being the son of a direct Chilean Import, it
was not his genetics that set him apart.
Andie fell in love with Donnie from the start. Donnie could pick
her out from a crowd and would always come when she called him.
We credit Don Juan with involving our grandkids on our farm.
Donnie became known as the "kissing alpaca" and was the ideal
PR animal as he would greet farm visitors with a kiss, even
though Andie is a brunette, he particularly liked blondes. New
visitors often would ask to see Don Juan, as his reputation
Donnie sired two offspring, ZZ who inherited his personality
and is a PR alpaca for Zaramama Alpacas and a beautiful female
named Buttercup, who is a screen saver on many visitor's cell
Donnie has retired to a critter farm where he is loved and
well cared for. Ironically that farm is only a mile down the
road from Andie's house, where she still stops by for a kiss.
