Nosy new neighbours


Alpacas.

Just up the road, watching us with interest.

What will the dogs make of them?

Tosca is too vision-impaired with cataracts to spot them, and Flossie is too ball-obsessed to see anything other than the occasional squirrel. And even then, the ball usually wins....

Marcheline said...

Oh, they are lovely! I'd be down there introducing myself to the owner and asking to pet them!

They are so beautiful. I really need a bigger yard. I wonder what they neighbors would think.

So cute, I love them !!! My dog would chase them, for sure, he is a bit like "Benton" (youtube).

Time to get out your spinning wheel?

Desiree said...

Or Fenton the dog.

What cuties, even although their bravery may be called into question.

I definitely want one of those . I'd even sacrifice my charming neighbour for an alpaca or two ...

the veg artist said...

No. Your house is too small!! You can't have one!!

Isabelle said...

No, Rachel. Put it out of your mind. The gang would not be pleased if you acquired a couple of those.

I have some lovely soft Alpaca Merino mix wool that I use occasionally to felt up little bears.... it is sooooo soft.....

oh.. and one other thing... Alpacas love to spit at people when they get close..at least the ones we met.. but their fleece is heavenly .. reminds me of what angel hair would be like.

I saw loads of alpacas when I went to Peru last year. I bought some wool (as cheap as chips out there) and knitted some incredibly soft baby items. I'd keep in with the owners, you might get the odd bargain!
