On Saturday, I went to visit my Alpaca...
They aren't really mine, but when I walk around the farm, I pretend they are mine.
I love them...but what I love more is the feeling I have when I am on this farm.
Every member of the family greets you with a huge smile,
they are genuinely happy to see you.
Us girls talk about girl stuff, yarn and knitting...
Don takes everyone who visits for a tour.
He tells them all about the Alpaca and offers you carrots so you can feed them.
Dee shows everyone how to "spin yarn".
Sister Liz knows how much I love birds,
she helps me find this blue bird so I can capture a picture.
Leanne is here, she is the patient soul who taught me how to knit.
I love her!
They all call me "Purple Debbie" can you handle how cute that is?
So "any who"...I took a few pictures, really I did...
* hehehehe *
They are playful...
and roll around in the dirt!
I wanted to see them on Saturday, because they were getting their haircut on Sunday,
and they look kinda' different.
It is best for them - so they can tolerate the summer heat!
These five Alpaca had been sheared at a show the week before...
this is how they look after a haircut.
"Laying in wait"
