The Tiny Joys of Raising Alapcas

My most favorite part of raising alpacas is sharing them with others. This week has been filled with that joy!
We had a tiny visitor yesterday. A two year old named Hayden that had no fear of the alpacas or our other farm critters. To me that is unusual. Most of our tiny visitors are afraid of these big fuzzy creatures.
What is great is that my alpacas are so curious about the little kids. I think they can sense that they are something special!
Hayden insisted on calling them llamas even though his grandma and I kept telling him they were alpacas. But he also tried to tell them to stay and to sit so that he could walk up to them and pet them. So adorable!

After meeting the cria we introduced Hayden to our yearling boys that love people and like to share kisses.
Max of course was at the gate ready to greet Hayden. Maverik was not too far behind. Hayden kept trying to feed them hay but that just confused the boys. So I got some dandelions and we fed the big girls over the fence. Rosie was the only taker when Hayden tried. The others were too shy. They were just trying to figure out this little guy!

Hayden ended his visit with a look at the pigs and then checked out our antique plow.

Thank you Hayden for visiting our farm!
