Chat with Rainbow


Welcome to the first issue of Chat with Rainbow for 2021. I know….you’ve all been waiting with bated breath for my wise words of wisdom and probably wondered what has taken me so long. I have no idea. Seems like the time just got away from me. But now here I am.

This is my blog for all of our friends and colleagues in the alpaca world. A bit of something for everyone. So be sure to check back often for my latest comments and musings.
