Alpacas Visit...

I can cross it off my list. Today I went to an alpaca farm. I did NOT hug any alpacas, but I would have if they'd come up for one. I was in the barn with the new mamas...one had a baby only a couple of hours old! Then we went out in the field to wander around with them... Isn't this little girl sweet... Mama wasn't sure about her being this close to the baby... But the curly hair on top...maybe she IS one of us?!?!?
And this is the little farmer who was shoveling when we arrived. After he warmed up, he started telling us about his chickens...he has 2 roosters and 9 hens and he has eggs and did I want some eggs...then he was talking about taking his customers down to get their eggs and although I didn't go home with any Alpacas (you know I couldn't do that!), I bought a dozen and a half beautiful brown eggs from the top salesman around...

Thanks for making it a great morning!!

What do you mean you couldn't come home with one... Your adorable little curly top is off to college... you have a big back yard... I think you should have brought home a baby pair... think of all the money you would save on wool!
