Guess What???

Need I say more? How cute is she?? She was born on my dad's farm on Tuesday and we went out there today to see the new arrival. My dad and his wife didn't even know that the mom was pregnant!! They bought her last November and apparently she was. My dad's wife went out to the pasture to feed on Tuesday morning and there she was! She said that she could be heard screaming in 3 counties - she was sure of it. No name yet - any suggestions?

So that makes #5. Five alpacas. My husband definitely needs to learn how to spin!! I picked up some shearings from the white one today. Now I just need to figure out what to do with it! I have 2 bags. One full of "good stuff" and then one full of "secondary stuff" from the legs and neck. I really have no idea what to do with it but there is a bunch of it so I need to learn. It's hard to turn down free alpaca yarn - even if I do have to work for it.

Here's a couple more entertaining pictures from today:

Before you ask, yes, that's my husband and he IS petting turkeys!

Yep, we have baby goats too.

If you don't want to learn to spin, you could always ebay or etsy the alpaca fleece. I'm sure lots of people would love to buy it.

It is so nice to see you blogging again. For awhile, I wondered if you were kidnapped and DH forgot to pay the ransom? LOL Take it easy and actually it is "The Borrowers" who do things in the middle of the night. That's my story! :)

Oh heck no! I want the yarn from our family alpacas! But thanks for the suggestion Carolyn!

And to Cindy - No, not captured....I know I had a hiatus for a while when we were thinking about moving to SC and were kinda crazy. But, we aren't moving so I'm alive and well in blogger world!!
