Two and half feet of snow really make it hard to get some exercise, if you are a horse or an alpaca, unless you have very clever parents. All the animals were going a bit stir crazy (which can get downright dangerous), so Mom and Dad innovated!
Dad went in a circle around the arena, snowblowing a wide path. Then Mom sprinkled hay all around it and viola! We have a race track.
That solved one problem, now what about the alpacas? Dad just made a wide path right up the center of the “exercise paddock”, and let ’em loose.
Not surprisingly, Mikayla and Marsy just are not into the fluffy white stuff. It might mess up their hair. But our most playful and sweet alpaca, Tulip, loves it nearly as much as she loves the sprinkler!
