Chrysler and Spinsanity-The Alpaca Nurses
Besides having donuts at the farm by 8am, Chrysler and Spinsanity got the vaccinations ready for the alpaca. Not sure, but I'm thinking it was dewormer stuff. (very scientific, I know)
After an alpaca is caught, it must then be tipped. Ok, not like cow tipping. This is a controlled process that went something like this
Jim: "You got the head?"
Jim: "Ok, GO!"
Leg sweep, leg sweep, steady weird alien head, and she's down.
The she being referred to is me. Ass over tea cart. Or ass over alpaca depending how you look at it.
How many ZPDKs does it take to take a boot off? 3 and one to take photos!
How many to put up a shade shelter? ALL, even the photographer.
We learned pretty quickly though. We had too! 18 animals, 2 llamas, and the cats.
Chin, lower legs=Texas rug
Beware of their cuteness! Aliens...ATTACK!
Now when you wonder why the alpaca roving, yarn or sweater costs more than other fibers...you've got a bit of an idea what goes into it. Fun, friendship,hard work, sweat, and snot.
