Ann Bradbury insists their alpacas are not pets. "They are livestock," Bradbury said. "They are animals. They like to be together." But then you watch her for a few minutes. She calls them by name, asks them how they are doing and then offers some affectionate hugs and pats. She refers to them lovingly as boys and girls. Pets? Maybe not-Part of the family? Possibly. "You fall in love with them," she said, while giving a tour of the Ridge Valley Alpaca Ranch on 3 1/2 acres west of the Devils Backbone, Loveland.
