Meet Angelo, Lily and little Rowena!
Last week we bought three more Alpacas – Angelo (the guy with the very hairy legs and long fringe) and Lily are Suris, and little Rowena, who is still on the bottle, is a Huacaya, like Don Carlos. Three-and-a-half-month-old Rowena’s mother died and she was adopted by Lily. When she is all grown-up, we hope that she and Don Carlos would fall in love and start their own family! This new family are all settling in nicely on Landmeterskop, getting used to their new environment and meeting some of the other inhabitants of the farm. This weekend before all our guests arrived, Valerie still had to trim their fringes so that they could at least look our guests in the eye! To learn more about Alpacas and the difference between the Huacaya and Suri Alpacas, read here: https://landmeterskop.com/2013/10/07/meet-don-carlos-a-chilean-noble-now-guarding-sheep-in-the-overberg/

In a truly tranquil surrounding far out of The Village. Excellent stay for city slicking families so the kids can experience that milk, eggs and other agricultural products are not produced in the supermarket …. 😀 😀 😀
Such beautiful pictures!! It is the first time I see this animal 🙂
