Alpacas are fluffier than ever!
I don’t know if you remember, but there was a mini heat wave a few weeks back. My alpacas are in full fleece and were looking uncomfortable in the heat. Their water buckets were always muddy because the water had been paddled in and so I decided to get them a paddling pool. Knowing flimsy plastic wouldn’t last long, I had the idea of creating one where there is a natural dip in the land. I built up the walls (using alpaca poo), lined it with a tarpaulin and put bricks round the edge. It started to rain, just as I was finishing, hasn’t stopped for long ever since and my lovely paddling pool hasn’t been used!
Happy and Lima are looking so fluffy and lovely at the moment! Here they are sharing a little love!
L’Automne is the smallest alpaca of the herd and her fleece is looking spectacular. It is as if it could blow away in the wind at any moment!
Lorelle has the cutest face with a super heavy fringe! Sometimes we wonder how she can see, but then we see her happily bouncing across the fields and we are certain that she has no problems knowing where to place her little legs!
Here’s Happy and Havana enjoying their dinner. Havana is a great mum!
So all is looking good in the field at the moment, the annual haircut is on the 12th June and the lovely fluffies are definitely lovely and very fluffy.
Love from Tracy and the Alpacas xx
