Show Of Your Alpaca's

Hey,

Well we've got Alpaca's -- to many to count. We actually have a property, people come and visit and they get a talk on aplaca's. So here are some of my Aplacas.

Main Man -- Roy.

Hey Paula,

Our normal Alpaca's are basically on a grass diet. But if someone’s ill or heading off to show we chuck something extra in. Basically same as horses in fencing, no barb wire. They are known to get themselves caught up in it. They need to be shorn every year and need basic care. They do involve quite a lot of work if you show them like we do. But otherwise they can be just like dogs or horses; you just need to get into the routine of doing things. Alpaca's are herd animals, so you shouldn't get one alone.

I don't personally own any, but I went to a Llama show!

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
