My lovely boys

We have been caring for alpacas for nearly two years now.  At the moment we have 5 boys but, with the Small Farm Field Day coming up at the weekend, I suspect that some of them will be sold.  They are easy for me to look after - clean water and a handful of food each day is all I need to do.
They all have their own bucket - it minimizes spitting incidents
Of course, if they were actually mine I'd have to do a lot more for them: drenching, shearing, toenail clipping.  As it is, I can enjoy them without the stress of being fully responsible.

The lovely Lurtz - he's my favourite
