Alpaca Tribe

Steve Heatherington

The Alpaca Podcast for all things alpaca. Alpaca Tribe is for anyone who feels a connection with alpacas. It is for existing owners, everyone interested in keeping alpacas, people working with alpaca fleece or providing alpaca services, or those who are just alpaca mad. With our guests, we will look at getting into keeping alpacas; making the most of the ones you have got (and enjoying it); ways to use the fleece, not just store it; opportunities to develop business activities relating to alpacas; and growing in your experience, wherever you are starting. Each week we will be talking to people like you and to breeders, vets, producers and professionals. The Alpaca Tribe Podcast is your place for wisdom, guidance and great stories about all things alpaca, from people who know because they have already done it. Join the tribe at alpacatribe.com

But what does it mean?
Welcome to the podcast for alpaca people! In this episode, I am considering how to make sense of the things that happen. Sometimes they are random, sometimes they are the result of our actions and sometimes they mean something. But not always. For example, there is no connection between me planning to shear and it starting to rain - at least I don't think so! Make your plans, stay flexible and include some contingencies and then make peace with not knowing. The circumstances may not change but we can feel completely different about them. You can make the difference. Stay present in the moment - plan to have a half-hour holiday by going and spending time with your alpacas - today, or tomorrow at the latest. And do it regularly - it's good for you. I am involved in a project and wanted to let you know - (The Carbon Almanac) - a book of vital resources will be published in the Summer of 2022. Check out the website for more details. There are (four associated podcasts) - in this episode I wanted to highlight (The Carbon Connection), where podcast episodes by other people are re-shared because they are so useful for us as we engage with climate change. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for listening and I hope you enjoyed it. If you would like to be in touch, please contact me by email - steve@alpacatribe.com - or leave me a (voicemail) from your browser.
