Good morning, and welcome to my baby alpaca blog. Today I will be showing you a picture of the alpaca family, father Mike (at left), mother Little Spring (center white), and the tentatively titled baby Pip Squeak.
Where do these alpacas live? Can I visit?
They live in Sacramento. Yes you can.
How many alpacas does your brother have?
Four plus this baby. He used to have five adults, but Lucille died tragically on Sunday!
How many motorcycles does he have?
I don’t know.
What are the other alpacas’ names?
I think the other ones are named Doris and Big Spring.
You are acting like this is the best thing that ever happened to you.
I was really caught off guard by my overwhelming enthusiasm.
Does this make you want to have a third baby?
It is the first thing to have piqued my interest in babies in a very long time. But no.
Can you use alpaca fur to make scarfs only, or can it be used for other things?
Yes, it can be used for other things like sweaters and hats.
You can get a lot of money for alpaca fur, can’t you?
My understanding is that there was sort of an alpaca fleece bubble. Lots of people bought alpacas thinking they could get rich quick and then the market became over saturated.
How would alpacas fare in Texas?
They would be fine.
I want one!
There could literally be another baby being born as we speak. We have no idea if the other alpaca ladies are pregnant.
I’ve heard that llamas are mean.
That could be. Alpacas are really nice, though.
Do you have any actual experience with alpacas yourself?
No, not directly.
