Luxury 5 star Alpaca Treatment

The two boys have had an upgrade to there living quarters, they have now had a carpet laid in there shelter, they are not pets and we are not pampering them, honest, there is a good reason for this
 We are coming up to shearing time and we need there fleeces as clean as possible, I was reading a few Alpaca sites and this was recommended, take away any straw and lay down a bit of old carpet for them to lay on to keep rubbish out of there fleeces. There is a flooring supply place next to hubby's unit and they were happy to oblige hubby asked for some off cuts and was given a roll of carpet, enough to keep them going for a couple of years. 
And what do the boys think
 Oddjob is trying it out having a lay down while Nick Nak is still unsure
OK we approve of the carpet but were is breakfast 

 And while your at it I need some attention
I have a new hair decoration I am not sure of it what do you think

My hair is fine thank you don't even think of giving me a trim
Thanks that a lot better it didn't really suit me not my colour, and the new fringe I can see again.

Oddjob must have been really grateful for me rescuing his hair, he followed me all the way to the gate humming.


  1. What a great idea. And it looks like they will have gorgeous fleeces! I have some alpaca fleece buried in a box somewhere. I long for the day when I can get back to my fiber arts.

    1. I am looking forward to having there fleece to spin and knit up, I am planning a lovely warm jacket.

  2. I love your Alpaca stories......... I think they're saying where's the red carpet? x

    1. They are comical to watch and you cant help but smile at them :-)

  3. I have a hankering to keep some Alpacas at our next house. It will be such a treat and a help to see how you look after your two. Hope your face is not so sore now.

    1. Alpacas are so stress free and the way they hum at you its very relaxing being around them.
      My face is a lot better today thank you.
