Wind Dance Ranch-Our Guardians
Wind Dance Ranch
We have a lot of predators in our area and our guard

llama we have had. She lives with the goats
and makes sure they let her have her fair share
of hay and grain. (Her waistline has grown

with a beautiful male cria that we named Jet. Grace
lives with the goats and is sweet and kind to them.
This is Jet. He has grown into a very friendly and gentle guy. He lives
with the alpacas and although he is larger than the alpacas he lives
with, he is very submissive toward them. We couldn't ask for a sweeter
