Chewbacca and two other alpacas were headed for auction and we were able to bring them to The Gentle Barn instead. They were weanlings, very thin, and weak. We gave them organic hay, fresh water, veterinary care, and lots of time outside in the fresh air. Sadly Chewbacca had copper poisoning prior to coming to us and we were not able to save him. Chewbacca passed away at The Gentle Barn with his brothers by his side. The poisoning was not as severe in the other two and they will live wonderful lives at The Gentle Barn in loving memory of Chewbacca.
