Random alpaca word of the day: “kush”


“Kushing” or “Cushing” is the alpaca word for laying down on your belly, with all four legs tucked under you. No one on the internet seems to know which spelling is preferred, and it’s also apparently potent strain of marijuana and a mountain range. Our babes kush when they are relaxed or tired, and also when they don’t want to be led where you are trying to take them. They also kush during transport, which is great because they can’t hurt themselves falling all over :P.

It's an old picture, and dark, but this is how the 'pacas tend to end the day, kushing and watching the sun set.

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.
