My "Rural" "Heart"!

In my heart I am a farmer!

So today, in honor of Rural Thursday,
I got down & dirty on the farm!

invited me to spend time with her, at her parents Alpaca Farm,
Arrow Acres Farm

I was only a tad excited,
it's about 95 degrees here in the shade,
I thought about cancelling but I just couldn't do it.

Are you ready for a picture overload??

Here's what's happening in my neck of the woods...

How cute is that face??
He's a male, the boys and girls don't "play" together.

A little tooth action.

Spicy

Water play!!

They mostly do this!!

This is Reno, one of the new babies.

He is soft, sweet and full of personality.

Andee and her mom introduced me to all the Alpaca's.

They made sure I knew every one's name.
I can only remember Spicy and Reno (sigh), it was hot!

Do you see Spicy's heart??

Here's a closer look!

This is Geneva.
She is ready to give birth, any second.
I was hoping she would do it while I was there, no luck.

This was my favorite image of the day.

And this one too...Andee and I.
Her personality is about as sweet as that pink shirt she's wearing.

Thanks Andee for your friendship, I had a blast.

I'm sharing today with
Please visit Nancy at A Rural Journal
and Lisa at Two Bears Farm

she has a wonderful blog!!

  8. Debbie!
    Alpacas are lovely animals.
    The first time I see such large quantities.
    Your pictures and post are great.
    In Poland it is also very hot. Temperature of 35 degrees Celsjusza.
    Best regards.

  13. Awe, I am so glad you decided to go visit the darlings despite the heat! Cuteness overload! Especially with the precious heart!!!

    It looks like the alpacas have recently been sheared. I would think that would help them stay cooler?

  16. HI Debbie, I enjoyed this alpaca farm visit. They have to be one of the cutest farm animals I have ever seen. I am surprised you did not buy a farm, you could have your own alpacas. Wonderful photos. Have a great day and stay cool.
