Meet Pearl, our new cria, who was born on 10/16/15.  Sapphire is her Dam.

Our alpaca ranch farm is located in Burton, TX .    Our new house is complete and we moved in 12/23/16.   We are working to finish the barn and the internal pastures with hopes of bringing our alpacas here by this March/April 2017.

Our 13 alpacas are now being boarded at these farms.

We just love our alpacas and their babies (crias). They love running around the pastures.  The adults are about 125 lbs. and about 36' tall at the withers.  The gestation period is about 11.5 months.  The female alpacas are bred at different times during the year, depending on your area.   For example, Texas will bred the alpacas around the end of March, after they are shorn, so the cria's (the babies) will be born during March and April the following year.

Welcome to the Next Chapter Alpacas 


We love  our precious Huacaya and Suri alpacas.  


Thank you for visiting our website.  We look forward to sharing our knowledge about the alpaca industry.  


We're are proud members of these alpaca associations: TXOLAN,  AOA, A-OK,Alpaca Street, Open Herd, and the Suri Network

Alpacas breeders will pick a weekend to shear their alpacas, so they will stay cooler during the hot months. The fleece is is made up with the blanket (the body with no leg fleece) and the seconds and thirds (the legs).  The blanked is skirted (prepared) to be entered in the fleece shows to be judged for density and luster.  

The fleece is sent to fiber mills to be processed into thread/yarn/roaving to make a variety of products.


The fleece can also be used in needle felting and wet felting.


  o  Small mills process alpaca fiber.

  o  Spinners also process alpaca fiber for their own             use to make products to sell.  

  o  Knitters use processed yarn to make sweaters,               blankets, and rugs. 

  o  Roaving is used to make rugs.

Over the years we've enjoyed attending the TXOLAN (the Texas alpaca association) shows before attending the Oklahoma and Arkansas alpaca shows, where Motion and Charlotte, our breeding female suri's were awarded 1st and 2nd place during Oklahoma and Arkansas shows 2013 and 2014, for their color and age class.  


Mondavi, our year old male cria, won first place during the TXOLAN 2015  and 2016  shows.  We are now taking him to more alpaca shows.
