Alpacas and the Circus Part 1

~Destiny Alpacas~

So, this part will be about our fun, cold, and LATE trip to the Destiny Alpaca farm on Friday!  Here we go!

We left around 4 o’clock and it took about two and a half hours to get there (that including stops that we had to make).  We arrived JUST when the sun was setting, and since they lived on a hill, you could see every, single, inch of the sunset!  It was BEAUTIFUL!

   

I went sky crazy and took more pictures of the clouds then the cute, fluffy, adorable creatures surrounding me! 🙂  Seriously…if I could live inside of the sunset, I would be so happy.

Anyway…

We did go for a reason, not just for the heck of it!  In April, we will be getting two alpacas.  A male and a female.  The male is reddish brown color, and the girl is a yellow-cream like color.  They are both adorable and beautiful!

   

They already had names, of course, and we weren’t too impressed…Danger Zone is the boy and Sahara is the girl. 😐  Ha ha.  We just might change that!  Aren’t they CUTE!?!  (Note: Danger Zone is the little brown one in the picture on the left.  The big one is his mom.)

Now for some BIG alpacas!  The owners live on twelve acres, and they own thirty alpacas–what?!!  They said that ten alpacas can live happily on one acre!  They are very smart animals for the most part, and pretty easy to care for.

This big guy is Sahara’s dad I believe…I honestly don’t remember?!  (I’ll post whatever I said wrong at the end)  He was HUGE as you might be able to tell from the photo.  The man holding his neck is one of the owners, and he was pretty tall, so that’s one big alpaca.

This guy is Crockett, Danger Zones dad if I’m not mistaken…of course, this could be Sahara’s dad and the white guy could be D.Zone’s dad, but I DON’T REMEMBER!?!  He was really gorgeous and soft though.

The sunset fading away…

Now onto the barn where all the females reside!

Real quick!  Before we go “inside”, these two little guys above were adorable!  I believe the white one’s name is Nicholas, but I didn’t catch the brown one’s name…but doesn’t he look angry?

Goodbye Sun!!!!  *sniff*  Ha ha

We were all very happy to go inside, especially Cael. 🙂  It was FREEZING outside, and very windy, and somehow no one heard mom before we left when she told us all to get on warm clothes!  Oh well.

All over the place they had alpacas!  Real, fluffy dolls, signs, etc…it was cute (of course you would think that an alpaca breeding farm would have alpacas everywhere)!

   

It was very warm and fuzzy inside.  The little building we first walked into was the front of their barn which was their little store!  They make gloves, hats, scarves, socks, little pouches, and other things–they were all SO soft!

   

Cute stuff, huh?!  The baby hat above and the teddy bear were my favorites.  I also liked the scarves!  The bear was so soft, it didn’t even feel like you were touching it.

Here is the first batch.  The brown one in the front is Sahara’s mom.

The lady to the left is the other owner!  They were both as sweet as could be, and she loved all the little kids! 🙂

Peek-A-Boo!

They were showing us how to balance the alpacas necks and they showed us the soft hooves, and Sahara was playing games.

   

Batch Two!

These four alpacas, female, were very sweet, especially the one on the left; her name is Carty (I don’t know how they spell that?!).

   

The brown alpaca above was very pretty.  Pictures are great, but there is nothing like seeing it in person!

   

Carty really liked Sylvie.  She even gave her a kiss! 😉

So yeah!  There’s the alpaca farm! 😀

Now, we were going to stay for half an hour maybe, but (of course) we were there until a little after 8 o’clock…and we got there a little after 6 o’clock! 😛  When we did leave, finally, we headed down to an IHop, but we did not arrive at one until 9:30-ish because there wasn’t one up in the mountains–only Waffle House!  THEN, when we got there, we stayed there for a l-o-n-g time…got home at 12 o’clock AM…but it was a fun trip and Sarah, Adam, and Bessie got to come with us. 🙂

<><><>

Here are a couple other things that have been going on…nothing much, but I just wanted to share that almost all of my seeds have sprouted!!!  I am so happy that they are all doing well so far!

And, I finished my cross-stitching!  I really like how it turned out.

 

I hope this week is a wonderful one for everybody.  God Bless, and I will be writing about the circus tomorrow and there will be pictures! 😀  Yay!
