Alpacas or Miniature Horses?
No replies to this topic
Posted 27 December 2012 - 07:38 PM
I am looking for some experienced owners to give a little advice.
I have a 2.5 acre property. I am looking at fencing off an acre and dividing it into half for grazing. We intend on rotating the animals between the two paddocks (half acre each) and on occasion will let them come onto the other 1.5 acres.
We are completely inexperienced. I have been doing some research (google ) but have yet to go around to different breeders to speak with them. I was also thinking I should talk to a vet to double check what I've been told by the breeders afterwards before making my decision.
So far I would like to know if this sounds reasonable on the size of land we have to offer. I was considering 2 miniature horses or perhaps 4 alpaca? I would also like to know (roughly) how much per week they end up costing.
I am in Queensland.
Thanks so much!
