Home / Living with Alpacas

Winter 2016

January 28, 2011

This winter has had snow on the ground since December 2015, like it was in 2011.  We're all used to the cold and snowy vista.  My favorite thing is that I get to spend more time inside the barn with the alpacas.  As long as I walk nice and slow, I go through them and they just step aside.  No one is hassled by my presence, we've all agreed to make it through these tought days together.
This photo is when Goldie Fawn was four months old and I could rub and touch her everywhere. She's always been curious, she comes right up to visitors and sniffs them from head to toe.  It's very charming, everyone who meets her falls in love.

Wonder why I love suris?
We have matching hair!

And my new best find is YakTrax.  Did you know they make chains for your boots?  They're so fantastic, the traction they provide is amazing. I don't worry about the ice any more, I've got permanent 4 wheel drive on my feet!
Snow, wind, cold weather, none of it matters.  When you love what you do, it's just another glorious day.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old

She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit
crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
