We visited the Victory Ranch on June 17th, 2011. This is about a 2 hour drive from Los Alamos, but the scenery is beautiful. We arrived in time for the 11am tour/feeding of the alpaccas. It was a lot of fun. Very relaxed. The 5 or 6 giant pyrennes dogs that we saw are very friendly too. There are about 300 alpaccas happily playing in the fields. They were sheared about a week ago (around June 10th if you want to plan to see them before they have been trimmed). After about an hour, there was some activity in one of the fields and a baby alpacca was carried/walked back to the area with other mothers and babies born in the last couple weeks. They also have a pretty good size gift shop with a variety of alpacca products. Hope you enjoy. Cost to feed is $5 for adults.

I have visited Victory Ranch everytime I visit family out in Mora.
First of all, it's huge and there are many many alpacas.
The first time I visited, I was able to go on a tour. The man took us over to a group of alpacas and let us feed them as he told us all about them and answered any questions we had.
They are the softest, friendliest animals in the world.
There is a decent sized gift shop which has anything from alpaca cards and coloring books to yarn and winter apparel.
Staff has always been friendly.

Most alpaca ranches are not open to the public or require reservations. Looking through hundreds of websites of these other places, it seems their main concentration is on selling alpacas to you. Since I don't have the money nor the land, I have always felt strange calling them.
But Victory Ranch has always seemed glad to have people stop buy and browse the gift shop, go on a tour or just take photos.
