Moms don’t want to play

The wildflowers have finished blooming, and the pastures have gone from green to gold. Which, apparently, makes them much less tasty. Mikayla and Tulip don’t waste their time on not-tasty grasses, so when Mom turned them out the other day they wandered back into the barn fairly soon. Marsy did not approve. 

Marsy does not approve.

She wanted to be outside playing! The babies don’t really eat grass yet, so they don’t see any reason not to be in the pasture. Marsy’s solution to this problem was to annoy Mikayla into leaving the barn. By chewing on her tail.

Marseille and Tripoli try to talk their moms into leaving the barn.

Trip picked up on her technique pretty much immediately, and soon they were both pulling on their moms’ tails. Every now and then, Mikayla and Tulip would flick their tails, as if swatting away a fly, but otherwise completely ignored Frick and Frack’s antics.

Marseille eventually gave up on her mom and went out without the adults. Trip, displaying his remarkable ability to copy Marsy, followed suit. What brave, big boys and girls our babes have become!

About cliffhousealpacas

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.
