The ideal alpaca... dense, fine, lustrous, crimpy or well-locked fiber, correct conformation, a good temperament, sound genetics and the best traits for breeding success - these things are a given. Every good alpaca farm or ranch should be targeting their breeding programs toward these alpaca ideals. So Paso Ligero doesn't differ as far as the ideals we target in the herdsires we offer to our clients. In fact, the focus on breeding for the best traits is why we don’t have a large number of herdsires to offer yet. We don't believe that every male born to the farm should automatically be offered at stud. Thus the herdsires we do have are those we feel meet those alpaca ideals and can be a benefit to our own and our clients' breeding programs.

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.

The Paso Ligero Philosophy
So what is this "treading lightly" philosophy all about? Well, it is important enough to me that I named the farm after it - Paso Ligero means tread lightly in Spanish - a nod to the Latin American roots of the alpaca. The alpaca in many ways represents the idea well, almost literally. With their soft-padded feet, they do very little harm to the pastures on which they graze, and graze rather lightly in comparison to many of the more traditional or conventional livestock.
