Now on to the good photos that I got of the Alpaca at Lisa's farm on Sunday before I came down with the crud....
Oops! I don't think this one was ready for a photo shoot yet! LOL She looked so surprised. :) I just love this one, I need to have it blown up & framed, how funny would that be, to come in the house & see this silly girl every day?!! ha ha!
Take a look at these cuties, this is a mom & yearling. I still can't get over how small they really are. The little one's head only came up to a little over my waist, and I'm short at only 5'2"...... Don't you just love their hair styles?
This sweet girl is getting ready to be a new mommy. Look how fat her belly is, Lisa said it could be any day now. I'm hoping she will let me know when the baby is born so I can go by and see a real tiny baby alpaca.
And all silliness aside, this pretty girl lost her 1 month old baby just 2 weeks ago, she has been sad & moping around. Lisa is hoping that she will perk up soon. The other lady alpaca have been spending time with her trying to cheer her up she said. How sweet!
Here is another Mommy & yearling, they have 21 Alpaca with one due any moment on the farm now. I left this one and the next photo whole without cropping so you could see just how clean this farm is. I was amazed! I grew up on a cow/goat/tobacco farm, wasn't nearly this spotless. The hubby said that when you raise animals for their fur/fleece/whatever it has to be kept clean so the fiber is clean & you can get top dollar for it. And the alpaca weren't stinky either. Now I didn't stick my nose on one but I did pet a couple of them & my hands didn't smell funny after. :P
I also got this new spindle while at the Alpaca farm... it's purple, pink & silver with glitter! :) It spins great, much better than my other one. I get what they are saying about balance with a spindle now..... so now I'm working on some cream fiber that Lisa gave me to ply with my pink.....
