What Do You Do With an Alpaca?

Today, I met some Alpaca...
and being such the farm girl that I am (hahaha),
I had never met one before.

Enroute to a photo shoot, 
I received a call that my client was running late 
so I had an hour to kill. 

I decided to explore the area a little 
since I love exploring places I don't know. 

Exploring led me to the Graceful Glen Alpaca Farm 
and they were having an open house. 

 I think these animals are adorable.
And coming from me that means something. 
I don't find farm animals cute. 
Smelly - yes.  Cute - no.

Just look at this face. 
How adorable is that? 

They remind me of something you might see 
in a Dr. Seuss book. 
I'm guessing Seuss must have met some Alpaca too.   

So what do you do with an Alpaca?
 I have no idea, 
but I know where you can buy one.

I knowwwwwwwww! I had never met one before moving to Oregon, and there are quite a few around here. Those eyes! They're so funny and sweet.

They look cuddly but I bet they're not. :)) Their hair makes beautiful, soft handspun yarns, so I've heard.

Love it, tend it, feed it, love it, comb its hair, clip its hooves, love it, water it, grow it, love it, laugh at it, love it, shear its wool and sell it, love it, love it, love it!

Oh Becca, what a great detour!! I am a lover of all critters, even those smelly farm animals but you've taken the cake with these shots.

The images make me want to reach right in and tousle their fluffy heads!! So cute. Great angles. Love 'em!

They are cuties, but like you confirmed, I'd suspect that long fluffy coat would harbor some nasty smells. I like their hairdo.

They are cute. And gentle. I had the great privilege to meet Alpaca up in the high mountains of Peru. What an amazing experience that was. LOL about your reference to Seuss. You are so right. Some of his critters do look a lot like alpaca. :-)

I love them, a friend raises them and weaves the wool

I love them! Our Alpaca farm here advertises them as being great 'lawn mowers'.
