Legendary Alpacas owner Gina Glasscock grew up around a wide variety of animals, as her mom rescued and rehabilitated animals in their home — everything from possums, raccoons, and skunks, to ravens, and even a mountain lion. Her father was a famed entrepreneur with a line of startups, including the famed Dallas bar Borrowed Money. Today she combines those passions in her ranch Legendary Alpacas in Maypearl, south of Dallas-Fort Worth.

Legendary Alpacas is home to over 60 Huacaya alpacas (50+ females and 10+ males), a herd of horse, a clutch of chickens, a rasp of guinea hens, a gang of turkeys, a waddle of ducks, the family’s three dogs – Scarlet, Deacon, and Bishop – and the Glasscock Family.

Gina is a member of regional alpaca association TxOLAN and sits on the board as the Vice President in Charge of Education, an acknowledgement of her extensive experience and contributions to the larger alpaca community. She is also the Chair of the Youth Committee for AOA (the national industry association), which reflects her dedication to engaging and educating the next generation of alpaca breeders.
