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.
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.
