Three Old Gentleman122 viewsThese three old gentlemen --- Batman, Brad, and McVit --- are all that's left from our small herd of alpacas. We decided, after our visit to Peru, that nobody in their right mind would pay 4,000 or more for an animal that has one cria a year (if you're lucky) and can produce enough fibre for a 45 sweater each season. But they sure are cute.

The Three Alpacas90 viewsOur three alpacas are getting on in years --- they are circa 13 or 14 years old. These three gentlemen were born at Lucies Farm. They remind me of three old bachelors, playing cards and smoking cigars.

Alpaca Shearing at Lucies Farm184 viewsThis is the third alpaca to be sheared. He watched the shearers tie up the other alpacas' legs, so he's a bit more crafty.

Three Sheared Alpacas468 viewsThey look a bit skinny and sad, but it was hot today (July 3 2005) and I bet they were pleased to be out of their thick alpaca wool "sweaters."

Westbrook Sharing His Trough818 viewsWestbrook, our Berkshire pig, is sharing his food with the three alpacas. Certainly a strange combination, but they seem to get along just fine.

Alpacas, Chickens, and Pigs236 viewsA bit of summer sunshine at Lucies Farm. The three male alpacas are always together, and don't seem all that bothered by the presence of pigs and chickens. I love when the pigs lie down for a rest, and the chickens peck at (I suppose) tiny insects in the pigs' ears.2 comments
