I mentioned in an earlier post that I am writing the newsletter for my local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), George Hall Farm. I showed up with the kids yesterday morning to speak with George's nephew about the newsletter and was greeted by the site of 4 beautiful Alpacas recently shorn and looking so totally adorable. Sadly, my camera was charging at home so I didn't get any shots of them (one of them is named Flanders, I just love it), but I promise to do that soon. The farm is awesome, chickens running everywhere with guinea hens, their little chicks all over the place. I even spotted two Angora rabbits though that is one fiber I am not currently coveting. Interesting that at least so far, the Alpacas only have bottom teeth, but they have an apparently wicked kick with their cloven hooves. I'm going to see if at some point, the woman planning to spin it will either let me watch or purchase some of the final product. I'm becoming an Alpaca stalker.
