This is Princess Penelope...she's such a love. Got lots of alpaca kisses from her...she loves to have the backs of her ears rubbed. Such a sweet girl! When they go down like this it is called "cush." She stayed like this for a long time and let me love on her!
From the left is Primos Etta, Princess Penelope, Millie Truffle Star, and Snowmass Sallie.
He likes to lay in the sun on his back, which is not a common thing for alpacas.
He is also the cry baby on shearing day too....they said he cries like a girl and makes a big racket!

First visited these guys on April 8 and again yesterday. They are so sweet! The owners have answered so many of our questions and are just fabulous. It's amazing the stuff we have learned about them. How they give birth in the mornings between 9-11 so the baby which is called a cria will be able to run from predators by evening. The females have a gestation of 11.5 months. They can live from 15-20 years of age. So fun to learn new things!
