The public is invited to meet and greet the new llama babies and their mothers at the Shady Ridge Farm open house Friday and Saturday, May 19-20, just south of New Richmond. The llamas will be sporting their new spring haircuts, and llama fiber and fiber products will be offered for sale.

Owned by Sheila and Britt Fugina, Shady Ridge Farm breeds for premium fiber and great dispositions in their llamas.

"Though we often have an open house in the fall, we've had many requests for a spring event on our farm when we have new llama babies in the pasture," Sheila said.

Visitors can learn about the many ways to enjoy llamas, as well as receive free handouts on the care and handling of both llamas and alpacas. Open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Friday and Saturday, the open house and sale will be held rain or shine.

Shady Ridge Farm is located at 1331 130th Ave., about 10 miles east of Hudson, Wis., and four miles south of New Richmond. For more information on the event, call 715-246-5837 or email bsfugina@frontier.com.
