Magical Farms

...is the US's largest alpaca farm. We went on a field trip with Shannon. There was a room full of fleeces (and we bravely resisted the urge to dump them all on the floor and roll in them), fields and fields of alpacas, and the birthing barn. That was the best. Mamas and crias (baby 'pacas) all over the place. Sometimes the several-day-old ones would get frisky and start running and kicking like calves. There was also a teeny tiny just-born one.
 


She was adorabibble once she got rubbed on with a towel (although, they still look a little alien). It took her about 20 minutes of kicking cutely, but she finally managed to stand:

 


Altogether a lovely field trip. :)
