AN ALPACA NAMED INDEPENDENCE


During the Farm Tour we attended last weekend we met the cutest little guy named Independence.
This Alpaca was so soft and quite friendly. He loved having his neck petted and eating a special treat of apple bits.
I really wanted to take him home with me.

He is a beautiful animal and one who most people put to work carrying a load of something. Or is that the other kind? ANyway, it is a nice portrait close-up.

lavenderlady said...

he is a cutie...the fur looks so soft. I guess that is why they use it for sweaters. Thanks for all your visits and wonderful comments. You are a dear.

He does look cute and his fur looks like soft warm carpeting. I wonder how big alpaca's get. I can't blame you for wanting one.

I'd have to try very hard to not hug him. What a sweetie!

I'll go hug the dog instead. He looks like he needs a little extra love on this very cold morning.

Alpacas are popular animals farmed here too. It appears that they are very easy to manage, they give a good quality wool and are very affectionate animals. - Dave

Does look like a stuffed animal.. was he/she soft?

annulla said...

Oh, so cute! It reminds me of the little bear that advertises fabric softener. Now I want an alpaca of my very own ... but I don't know how well he'd do in this tiny apartment on the 19th floor.
