Hanging with the herd
Right up the road from Spy Garden, friends of ours have a whole adorable herd of llamas and alpacas! We enjoyed our first (of hopefully many!) visits recently…

Baby had SO MUCH fun feeding them carrots!
You can see here where some of the fur has been shaved off…
The owner of these llamas/alpacas uses the fur and spins thread and wool with it! I look forward to talking with her to learn more about this process (and see some of the things she makes with it!) For now, all I really know about llamas and alpacas is that they are a combination of a cuddly stuffed animal, a camel, and a pony and are SO much fun to play with (and photograph!)
This one really reminded me of a camel.

Llama; this one looking very horse-like

What’re you looking at?!
Hello! What’s your name? (that’s how Baby was greeting all of them) haha
Come on Alpaca!
Hello, blue eyed friend!
This one reminded me of a pony.
