Lamb standing on alpaca
« on: May 01, 2013, 08:30:20 pm »

I was a bit worried our alpacas wouldn't get on with the new lambs but there seemed to be a lot of mutual sniffing and curiosity so I thought all must be reasonably okay. Hadn't seen any play though, but thought they just might not.

Went out into garden to bring hens in for night and saw the orphan lambs happily playing with one of the alpacas. By the time I went back to get my camera they'd stopped, buit I did get this picture on my phone of one of the lambs actually standing on the alpacas back!

I am *very* pleased!

I'm sure there should be a caption that goes with that picture.
