I have always had a deep love of animals and the natural world. My fondest memories of childhood are of the hours and hours I would spend outdoors and the joy I received from each of my pets - and believe me, I was never without one... or two or three. Dogs have always been a part of my life. And there were the ever-present gerbils, hermit crabs, rabbits, cats, etc. I didn’t grow up on a farm, but my parents often thought I was attempting to turn our home into one. I loved riding and being around horses, though I never had the privilege of owning one, and whenever I had the opportunity to meet a cow or goat or other farm animal up close, I'd take it.

Paso Ligero is a proud member of the Maryland Alpaca Breeders Association. While we are located in Pennsylvania, we are situated only about 20 miles from the Maryland border, so it makes sense to help serve the most customers. We also believe MABA runs a great organization aimed at benefiting its members. To learn more about MABA, visit their website at http://www.marylandalpacas.org.
