That time of year to repair posts and gates. Always a lot to do and mostly we do the work on weekends. We do a little each weekend and eventually it adds up. The fun thing is that while we are repairing fences the alpacas and dogs like to visit us. They are very curious as to what we are doing.
Fiona has a white spot on her top knot and it is kind of funny what people interpret that spot to be. Several people thought that it looked like a heart and one girl thought that it was a butterfly. A little boy told me that it was a bat. Some psychologists use an inkblot test to examine a person's emotional characteristics. I wonder if they could use alpaca white spots as a testing tool? Maybe not, but it sure would make the psychological examination more fun!
Grass is greener on the other side. Sometimes that is true when you have alpacas grazing in those fields. We have been very careful about letting the alpacas out in the fields lately. First of all we don't want the alpacas to get colic from the spring grasses but mostly we are trying to get the grasses in the fields to grow. The other day I had a laugh when I saw an alpaca and her three daughters and grand daughter had gone through the fence opening where the Great Pyrenees dogs go through to get to the different pastures. The panel that hangs in the opening to keep the alpacas out had broken. The ladies did indeed feel that the grass was greener on that side and took advantage of this rare opportunity to get through the fence that was blocking them from greener grass.
