Mason the Wonder Dog (as he is known around the farm and on social media!) may not be an alpaca, but don’t tell him that! Mason protects our herd from things that go bump in the night and the terrors that walk by day. He does such a good job he has been promoted to CEO of Sneaky Dog Protection Service!
Casey is a gentle soul, who can often be found with the youngest members of the herd, or hanging back at the back of the fields keeping a watchful eye on her charges. She is protective of all the critters here on the farm, but loves nothing better than a nap in the sun when her watch is up.
Colby is the more out going of our dynamic duo of sisters. Colby likes to guard the perimeter , so you’ll find her patrolling the fences and gates. She’s gentle with her charges, but aloof to anything new. She’s the first to sound the alarm and meet the threat head on. She takes her job seriously, but is always up for a snuggle with the cria, a quick wrestling match with her sister, or a hug from her favorite people. Although we lost Colby in 2022, we can’t quite move her from this page. Her influence on our security team echoes clearly in the pups she began training before leaving for the rainbow bridge.
Hazel, an Anatolian Kangal mix, is one of our newest additions to the security team. Hazel comes to us all the way from from Georgia. She is one of the fastest dogs we have ever encountered! Although still a pup and full of puppy hijinks, she is super serious about her job and gets better everyday. She is reserved in new situations and waits to see what develops before plunging in with everything she has; once she decides there is a threat she is all business. She is currently partnered with Casey in the female alpaca pastures.
Holly, another Anatolian Kangal mix, rounds our our Security team. She is also from Georgia, and made the trip to Tennessee with her sister, Hazel. Holly is a livewire and is completely enjoying puppyhood. Her specialties right now include showing Farmer David where security breaches could happen and minor excavations around the property! Don’t let her good natured fun fool you- she’s just as serious about her job as her sister! Holly is under the tutelage of Mason in the adult male pastures.
