It’s amazing how often I feel like starting a post with “OMG Trip is adorable!”  Over the weekend, I got to weigh him (Trip gets weighed weekly, this week he gained 3 lbs). It involved just a little bit of frantic scrabbling to catch him. I ended up standing in front of him and just letting him crash into my arms at full speed. Then I had an armful of soft, cuddly alpaca baby.

Trip and I on the scale. He weighs 30 lbs. My weight shall remain unrecorded.

He calmed right down, once I had him. Although he did make his little siren call of distress AFTER I put him back in the corral. I suspect it’s because Tulip, his mom, went back to grazing in turnout without evening thinking twice while we carried of her baby! How dare the world not revolve around him.

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
