We recently purchased our farm and were finally able to bring our 10 alpacas home (we had been agisting them for almost 2 years). We had done alot of research on keeping the stress level low for our alpacas and one of the first things we ordered were the green panels and gates. We ordered them so we could set up an area the alpacas could walk through for weighing and then complete herd health, all without haltering them. It worked so well that we actually got a weight on our older girl who was imported in 1995 and as far as we know, no one has been able to weigh, because the minute you halter her she kushes. We put a mirror outside the end of the scale and we could hardly believe it….she walked right into the scale and stood there looking at the alpaca in the mirror while we weighed her (that is one of the pictures….we had to record that moment in history!) and then we opened the gate at the end of the scale and she walked out to get a closer look at that alpaca and then joined the rest of the girls…all without any stress.
And then, we discovered how really versatile those panels in the barn are…..we can now separate the girls when they eat so the two that eat the fastest cannot get to the slower girls grain; and in the heat, that is their favorite place to hang out. We seem to keep coming up with new ideas for using panels and may even have to buy more soon! Thank you for making such a versatile, high quality product!

Hi Jay and Jonathan,
I was just on your website and found the pictures of our farm. I’m so happy that you could use them. The alpacas really love their barns and panels. We finally got around to painting the wooden boxes in the front, now you hardly notice them.
Here’s a little story about making a 2 X 6 “chute”. It’s shown in the second picture down on the left in my section of your photo gallery.
There is no restraint, it’s just a rectangle with a scale where they stand and I can get in there with them if I need to do any medical work. We brought a new alpaca to the farm and she was very hesitant to go into the chute to be weighed. So my girl, Firebird, kept going through it to show her how it’s done. I’d just say, “go to the scale, Firebird” and away she’d go. She did it about 10 times before the visitor got the nerve to follow. Now we play follow the leader and everybody gets weighed! I never thought of it as a game, but now they go in and out both doors so it’s really fun!
Thanks for the fabulous versatility and sturdiness of your products! You are definitely on the Links page of my website. I hope everybody finds out how helpful you are.

Hey there, just writing to say everything went great!!! Shears worked wonderful and cut like butter.
Here is Boerne before and after. Takes me a while to shear and my second cuts need work really bad. But they are all done.
I need to try a comb with the little wings on the end next. I am told and read that it will really help with second cuts.
Thank you so much for all your help and patience.

You gave me such superb customer service on the chute I recently purchased, I just had to come back to you when I needed fresh new mesh panels for the 1st Summer Hummer’s Female Pen Sale held in Goodells, Mich. on Aug. 11.
They arrived in great shape & looked fantastic at the show!

Here is a picture of Pival Accoyo Admiral who joined our herd late July. He is currently stationed in a separate section of the barn area away from the other boys for our standard 45 day quarantine period. To do so, we used the LLE mesh panels with a gate to create a pen outside of the main area. We built an area using the outside barn wall to create a 30’x30’ outside area for fresh air and sun, with a separate entrance that leads to a covered barn.
Worked out great!

I have finished construction of the chute – went together without any trouble. It is a beautiful piece of equipment. I’m going back out right now to put my first alpaca into it.

Just took this the other day and what do you know…there’s one of your
hay feeders framed perfectly behind Eduardo! Note the wheels on one
side (one of hubbies wonderful ideas). We do love these hay feeders, we
have one in practically every pasture!

I picked up the panels yesterday and they were in good condition. Thanks for your excellent customer service!
Due to the North Eastern weather, It took us a bit of time to get our scales in, but they are now in and functioning great! It was so wonderful to see what all of our Alpacas weighed especially our pregnant moms. Now we can keep a better health record.
As you can see in one of the photos Gerry is standing rather proud next to one of our Alpacas Chardonnay. Chardonnay is one of our maidens here at Littlewoods Alpaca Farm. She didn’t seem to mind our new stall and scales. We are thrilled.
Thanks for all of your help with getting the right scales and the tax exemption form as well.

Here’s some pictures of your green panels being put to good use. I just purchased these from you @ the Empire show. We had our Open House Nov. 5th. They worked great, everybody loved to get up close and personal with the alpacas.
Thanks for your assistance.
