wings and things


on January 30, 2012

I am still gobsmacked by our ‘changelings’. You see, we weren’t home yesterday when the Alpacas, Okami and Uluru, were shorn. So, because we weren’t there to see it happen, it was even more of a ‘before-and-after’ shock.

Many of our birds also seem amazed. Angelina’s hair stood on end when Okami and Uluru approached the food bin to munch out on wheat – and, previous to the shearing, I thought they were a bit fat! I’m about to go and buy some more food for them!

The following photo was taken on the day we purchased the little fellows so how was I supposed to know what was underneath all of that wool???

Oh yeah, we now have several bags of Alpaca wool if anyone is interested! There is enough here to carpet an entire continent – ha!

    Well at least the poor alpacas will be cooler when the next wave of intense heat arrives. They must have been sooooooooo hot last week.

    Oh, Julie, you make me laugh. I wonder if we can somehow mix it with Jack Russell fur into some exotic twill. I, too, have enough to smother a small Asian country.
    The production of fur on these small dogs must have a greater purpose than just to annoy my wife…maybe not.

    You should sell it; isn’t it quite expensive?

    Oh my goodness…they’re so thin without their coats! It’s cute!
