Meet Louie. I don’t know if that’s his/her real name, I just found this picture at https://nationalzoo.si.edu/animals/alpaca and liked the name. Seems friendly. Forehead scratches for our friend.

Baby Alpacas. Does he like her?

What in the world is an Alpaca?

Is it a llama? Part camel?

If you answered kinda of sorta both, you’re right! Their fibers (I don’t know if I should call it ‘wool’ or not) are sought after and expensive.

There’s a farm of them up north of town just off of Dobbins Pike; Long Hollow Suri Alpacas, which is owned by Karl and Jan Heinrich.

The couple will be here to educate us on these normally docile beings who originate from South America.
