CAMELIDynamics or the Gear?
Shortly after Marty began teaching her translation of TTEAM to the camelid community, she quickly discovered much of the gear available was not well designed, did not fit and was often counterproductive to the training effort.
It is terribly hard to pay attention when your shoes are too small. Marty knew with gear designed to fit and communicate with her camelids, the results were bound to improve. So she started sketching and her business partner, Perry McGee, started stitching. The Zephyr Farm product line was born.
Every Zephyr Farm catch rope and lead rope is hand-made by Perry McGee with each rope individually hand-spliced and lock-stitched. This attention to design, detail and quality ensures your Zephyr Farm gear will have a very long and useful life.
Perry and Marty work closely together to develop new products with a fine team of four-legged product engineers to test them out. When not busy shipping, counting, stitching, prototyping and ordering, Perry operates Zephyr Farm Lama Sanctuary Inc. and provides homes for many needy creatures.
Sizing System for Alpacas
We are very proud of the versatility, safety and workmanship of the Zephyr Halter, which continually gets rave reviews. However, based on customer requests for a wider range of fit, we are moving from a three–size system to a four–size system for alpacas. Rest assured, the new sizing is only going to improve the utility and versatility of the Zephyr Halter.
Extra small Fits from 3– 6 months or smaller, more delicate heads.
Small Fits most weanlings up to 8-10 months
Medium Fits large weanlings, yearlings, most adults.
Large Fits larger animals especially larger males with more wedge shaped heads.
A huge amount of variability exists between animals of the same species and age, therefore, so sizing guidelines are approximate. There is also a deliberate overlap between the sizes. If you own one of each size halter of the appropriate species, you can fit any animal safely and comfortably
