Black and White – Always Right

Momma here, wishing everyone a Happy New Year. Our Colorado New Year started out cold and snowy, but thankfully we missed the big snow storm currently covering most of the nation. Dad and I took some excellent photos of our little herd’s snow antics on Sunday morning, and I thought you might enjoy seeing them.

Brittany is our true black alpaca, but on a cold and snowy day she is anything but true black. The density of her “blanket” or fleece keeps her insulated from the cold; just look at all of the snow still sitting on her back.


CiCi and Brittany trudging through the new snow. Notice how CiCi has no snow on her fleece. She sleeps in the barn, no toughing it out in the elements for her.

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.

    Great photos of the snow “frosted” alpacas! They don’t seem to mind at all with that warm hair and sunshine.
