More pictures from the Alpaca Farm!!

Rain man loved giving everyone kisses. Because he's "too friendly", he had to become a gelding--if he hadn't, he would have died of loneliness. Because he was a male, when he became mature, he was too aggressive. Now that he's a gelding, he can hang out with another male and not be aggressive! yay for that! :o)

Here's all of us (except mom) getting kisses.

We LOVE Alpacas!!!

The Humming Pines Alpaca Ranch was WONDERFUL today!! We learned so much about alpacas, bought beautiful yarn, and made a new friend in Michelle! Her animals were friendly and gorgeous! And the yarn is softer than anything I've had so far!

Check them out at www.hummingpinesalpacas.com

The pictures are:
Rain Man (black) and his awesome bottom teeth--alpacas don't have upper teeth and they are vulnerable to predators, so Michelle and her husband have a special dog and double fences to keep them safe!
Rain Man and Sirroco: they hang out together--alpacas can actually DIE from loneliness, so you always need two! Who knew???

We had a wonderful weekend adventure!! Can't wait till the next!
