Alpaca ♪♫On the Road Again♫♪

Beth and John picked Slammie (Orion) up last Friday to take him to a 4-H work session. At 165 pounds, he really fills up Beth's van now. ▲ They have been practicing walking up and down steps, side passing over a ground pole (I'm really impressed with this 'cause I remember how hard it was to teach my horse), going over jumps, backing, and turning inside a circle. The picture below show John at practice going over a tippy ramp.
Nancy Rogers and her mom Pat Slagell have started this Alpaca 4-H club and alpacas will be shown at the Alma Fair for the first time this year. I think they have about 15 kids in the group. If you would like to visit their alpacas and farm go here - Alpaca Family Farm.

I'm rather disgusted with Etsy right now. I can get into my shop, but can't see images anywhere. They are boxes with descriptions in them. Right now my link on the right here in my blog is showing the no image boxes.

I love that they have enough alpacas so show them at the Fair. That is wonderful. And the pics are great. Slammie is adorable.

The Etsy pics are working for me. I hope they are working for you.

Though that black yarn is making me want some black fiber to spin for myself! It looks lovely.

I joined the Tour de Fleece for this year, so the fleece I bought from you is waiting until that starts!

Maple, love love love the hats! On the road reminds me of the episode of Dirty Jobs where they bred and de-fleeced alpaca. It didn't look like a dirty job to me and only made me want one of my own. We need and adopt-an-alpaca program!
