Leslie and Bob have been farmers, collectively for over forty-five years. Bob, along with his family, cash crop 1300 acres and raise beef cattle. Leslie was involved in the equine industry, breeding and raising Canadian horses. Canadian horses are a light draft and Canada’s national breed. In 2003 Leslie made a very good trade and acquired 37 registered alpacas for 6 registered Canadian horses. From that point on, a career change took place and Canadian Comfort Alpacas took off running.
