In April 2006, just by chance, we happened to visit the Kentucky Classic Alpaca Show in Louisville, Kentucky and were instantly captivated by these beautiful creatures called alpacas. We have always had a soft spot for animals and thought how great it would be to enter into a business working with creatures we loved.
After several months of careful thought and research, the path ahead became clear. It was truly the “perfect time” for us to make a life change, and we wanted that new lifestyle to include alpacas.
We purchased land, designed and built a home, rehabbed and added onto an old 1950s tobacco barn, and erected a huge expanse of four-board, no-climb fencing. The creation of our Kentucky alpaca farm spanned a few years, but we enjoyed the challenge and the journey. Today we are blessed with the opportunity to live with these beautiful, personality-plus animals who bring much joy into our lives.
The goals for Perfect Timing Alpacas have been fairly simple. We have kept our herd small so that our alpacas can be easily cared for and managed by just our family. By maintaining a small herd, we know the personality of each and every one of our alpacas extremely well which helps us make educated decisions about their individual health care and breeding choices.
Every day on our Kentucky alpaca farm has brought something new and different, and our knowledge has increased with each challenge and event. Our experiences have made us stronger and smarter and better able to care for our animals as well as advise others new to alpaca ownership. Although we certainly don’t know everything there is to know, we’re happy to share with others what we have learned.
Customer service is extremely important and doesn’t end with the sale of an animal. Our thinking is that when you buy an animal, you are also “buying a relationship.” We have appreciated those who held our hands through the development of our business and been there for us through both the good and the bad. Providing this same type of helpful service to our customers will always be a priority for Perfect Timing Alpacas.
