Like Mother, Like Daughter


Dad really thinks he knows his alpacas, but Mom can be ornery. On Tuesday, Mom was taking tons of pictures, hoping to get some good blog images, when she came up with this idea. Since Marseille and her mom Mikayla are identical, except for some markings on their faces and slightly different color, she decided to quiz Dad. When he came home for lunch, Mom showed him the photos and asked him who was who. Let’s see if you can tell, which alpaca is Mikayla and which is Marseille?

Give up? Here’s a hint: Marseille has a “Groucho Marx” mustache and is a slightly darker grey color.

Marsy is on the left and Mikayla is on the right.

Mom knew for sure who was who, after all, she took the pictures, but Dad was tricked. I can’t tell them apart without Marseille’s mustache, but Dad says he depends on more than just their good looks. When he’s out with the ‘pacas, he knows who is who by how they relate to him. Awwwww….

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.

    Yep – I could tell them apart because of the “mustache” too. Both SO cute!!

    Well that moustache is a dead giveaway isn’t it, but they are both very, very pretty.
