I posted these pictures on Facebook….

So, the least I can do is to share them here! I must do better at posting!

It’s been a cold March, but some grass is sprouting. Strong and Nugget have been eating every blade in their pasture, so I have started letting them out into the backyard to graze so their pasture grass has a chance to grow.

IMG_4537When I want them to come back in to their pasture, I get a pan of alpaca pellets, which they love. Here they come running for pellets.

IMG_4548We had a sunny day about a week ago and the dogs loved that! Soon it will start to warm up!

  1. Happy Chocolate Bunny Day to you! It looks like spring has finally arrived where you are, or are you just lacking snow? A couple of Midwestern friends have complained that the snow is gone, but it’s still a little too cold for spring. Waiting for tulips!

      We are lacking snow, except for a few piles from plowing. It’s been really pretty and sunny but still so cold! The spring bulb flowers are pushing up leaves, but last night it got down to 27 and it’s still only barely 30. Brrrrrrr!!!

      I was just at the grocery store and someone didn’t cover the flats of pansies well. Many of them are now black goo. Sad. 😦

      • Gah, I hate that when a retail place doesn’t take care of its plants, especially flowers! The 24-hour market I used to shop at in Minneapolis would sometimes forget to bring in the pansies at night, and in the morning they’d be dead mush. I was never sure whether to be mad at the store, or at the weather. 😦

    Wow, the ‘pacas really show how cold the winter was.

    • Lauri says:

      Yes, the paca boys really floofed up! They will be getting sheared (shorn?) soon and it will be funny to see the tiny long-legged, long necked Dr. Suess characters hiding under that floof!

  4. They’re so cute and fuzzeh!

    They are so nice and insulated and fuzzy now, seems a shame to sheer them.
    Though, hard to believe as it is, it will get warm, eventually.
    So, what do you do with the wool?

    • Lauri says:

      So far Ashlee still has 20 bags of fleece saved from last spring’s shearing. I will give her the fleece we get from the boys and someday she will get all of it taken to a co-op which will card it and process it however she wants. Spun into yarn or just processed into roving for felting…..I learned a few new words in all this!

      I am hoping for some warmth today…the 50s maybe. We are going on our first bike ride of the summer…..20 miles….and I don’t want to die. 😉

    OMG! They’re so ploufy! And so BIG! I don’t think I realized exactly how much they’ve grown until I saw them standing next to the picnic table. (Unless that’s a special prop picnic table designed to make them look enormous.)

    • Lauri says:

      You guys will crack up when you see them without their floof. They are 80% fuzz! They have grown….and being around 1 1/2 years old, they are nearly full grown. But, oh, the skinny necks when they get shorn. Sheared.

  7. Jaypo says:

    Fuzzy wuzzy wuz a ‘paca! Are they huggable? Are they good when they get sheared or do they get wacka?
