Dad has had a project recently, trying to teach the alpacas to eat their crumbles (a pellet treat) from his hands. Alpacas as a general rule don’t really approve of interactions with people, so it’s actually quite a difficult endeavor. But delicious crumbles and near-constant contact with Dad seem to have worked magic.
Tuscany was the first of the boys to really trust dad enough to give it a try. Morocco wanted to, but just wasn’t quite sure…until now. And Merlin, well, once Merlin can be bothered to try something, there’s little doubt he’s actually going to do it.
Look at the wizened face on Merlin. He’s very much the funny old man of our herd.
