Four friendly lads have moved in, to be our new neighbours. They are friendly, but don’t say much. Reserved, a little shy at first, but now talk over the fence every day. No loud parties, no alcohol, not even a speeding car to be seen. Into bed early at night, and up at sunrise.
How lucky could we be, to have friends like this.
Biggles and Gatsby arrived a few weeks earlier, checked out the accommodation, and told the other two lads to hurry up and come.
Their names will be posted when I remember them???
Alpacas are highly socialised, and need other alpacas for company, and these four show that so well. The wethers that arrived a few weeks after the two boys, have made up this wonderful group.In the hot afternoons, they all lie in a shady spot, not far from each other, and are so tame, you can feed them by hand . In a photo below, Orlando had just finished his meal, not Tip Top Ice-cream, but at a guess , alpaca nuts. They are allowed 1/2 cup each day.
See, I am just as pretty from behind!!!
If you hover the mouse arrow on each photo, a title will show. The boys all hum, and hummm and hummmmm when I go and talk to them, Maybe a video one day when they are vocal.
