Spring Storm


Happy Monday everybody, Dad here. If you’ve ever wondered what the Alpacas think of snow and wind, Saturday’s spring storm will give you an idea of what it’s like. Where the girls like to “kush” (a position where the alpaca folds its legs under its body to rest or keep warm), the boys tend to stand and complain to one another. The snow itself, doesn’t seem to bother them at all, but the wind drives them into the barn.

Sunday morning dawned bright and clear. The sunshine means the snow will start melting pretty quickly, so I got out early to run the snow blower. If I don’t get going early, it’s twice as much work for me because the wet snow will clog the chute. After I get the snow blown, it’s on to the animals, and that’s another story.

    Sounds like really hard work for you (she says as she sits in a warm, comfy room spinning alpaca/silk!)
