... If you're going to alliterate, you might as well mis-spell!
I have found that the 'blog lags behind the Facebook page just a tad, but I'm trying to keep up with both.
I plan to use some of these photos on the main site eventually, but for now, here they are on the 'blog!
First off is a portrait of Kubota, our newest up-and-coming young stud. 'Bota was the first alpaca that we ever had hauled in -- he came to us all the way from New Mexico!
This, of course, is Gus -- AKA Lord Gustafson -- our silver dun bull calf.
"Hey! Who you callin' cute?"
Logan, our harlequin grey cria. He looks as though he almost wants to become that rarest of the rare -- a brindle patterned alpaca! I will be MORE THAN happy if he shears out solid grey, though. This photo is one of the ones that I'd like to put on the main site.
This one is kind of cheating. It wasn't taken in the fall. I never did upload it, though, so here it is. These gals represent two different genotypes of grey alpaca. The one in the back -- Silverado -- is a tuxedo (classic) silver grey. The one in the front -- Western Sunrise -- is a harlequin grey. Both are alpha females, by the way. That's why they're hanging out together in the barn.
Cochin gals, hangin' in the yard ... The chicken yard. From left to right, we have a blue cochin, a splash, a laced, and another splash.
Aaaaand, one more of Logan. This guy is so photogenic. The camera is always there for HIM.
I wanted to get more while the fall leaves were on the trees, but I only got in a couple of photography sessions before several days of wind and hard rain dumped all them all down, leaving the trees barren. Ohhhh wellll .... There's always next year. (Next year, we'll have our very own farm-born cria!!)
K writes this stuff, for some reason that has yet to become apparent.
