A-OK Educational Event—Workshop with Guest
Lecturer Dr. Norm Evans.
Dr. Norm Evans. Yes, the man who literally wrote the book on alpaca care: Alpaca Field Manual. Aubrey Oaks Alpacas is excited to attend this event as we continue to increase our knowledge base about Alpacas. Contact A-OK President: John B. Robinson at 405-590-8552 for questions if you are interested in attending along with Charles & Debbie. Details can be found on the A-OK home page.
2017 TXOLAN Sweetheart Spectacular Alpaca
Show in Fort Worth, Texas
This is the 18th annual show, and is currently scheduled for Feb 10-12, 2017 in the Will Rogers Complex in Fort Worth, TX. This event allows the general public to visit "up close and personal" with over 300 alpacas and meet the ranchers, craftspeople and vendors that support this rapidly expanding industry. You can also see the results of Spin-Off entries and the Fiber Show. Aubrey Oaks Alpacas will be showing two of our Alpacas: Storm & Dodger. We will also have a large selection of merchandise on display. Click HERE for the schedule of events.
We may have a spot or two to some volunteers. No illusions here. It's work! Sweeping, sweating... it's a dirty job sometimes. Our shearing team are professionals, and they move quickly. More details to come!
Germanfest in Muenster, Texas
Always a great time to be had by all ages. Live Music every day usually from noon until closing. There's a very large Carnival Ride area across the street from the city park that hosts the event. Lots of variety in the vendors that ring the park—tentatively including Aubrey Oaks Alpacas! Food, drinks, and authentic German dancing too. A bike rally. A fun run. And a Barbeque Cook-Off too! Click HERE for more information, including tickets.
Lavender Ridge Farms Spring Show
This event is just 10 minutes northwest of our ranch. A self-pick Lavender Farm, you can roam the fields of newly planted Lavender plants and cut your own! There are also lots of beautiful spring plants for sale. The vendors that are in the shaded oak trees display a large variety of interesting & unique items. Click HERE for more information about Lavender Ridge. Check back for details closer to the event.
~ Herd Health Days ~
Aubrey Oaks Alpacas has a regularly monthly day where we halter up each Alpaca on the ranch to trim toenails, inspect teeth, weigh, give shots & document other monthly conditions.
It is a time only for those that are seriously interested in finding out if Alpacas are good for their ranch or farm.
It is a great time to learn more about Alpacas, and to have a real in-depth hands-on event.
Our Herd Health Days are usually on a Saturday or Sunday.
We use a chute (shown below) to decrease the anxiety of our Alpacas and prevent any injury to them or a handler. Most every one of them need very little restraint. (Oh, and that's Cady in the chute, with her Dam Cameo inspecting what's going on with her little girl...)
We plan on shearing animals at our ranch in the spring of 2014. If you are interested in being a helper on that day, it could be a lot of fun as the fiber flies!
Thanks for understanding that children under the age of 13 would pose an undue distraction to the time and tasks at hand. (Please plan on bringing the younger ones to our National Alpaca Farm Days open ranch event—see below.)
We can accept an limited number for each day if you will contact us and supply us with your particulars — why you would like to join us, your Alpaca ownership plan, etc.
