He's adorable, but I'm not really in the market for a camel right now. :) I hope the perfect home comes a long for him. :thumbsup
ps. I did run this by my DH just this second, just on the offchance that he might consent, he said nope! :lol:
Job doesn't mind if I put a lead on his halter, but he doesn't like his face or ears touched.
I can pat his neck while he's eating his food, but that's about it. I might be able to get a back scratch in, but that's only if he's feeling generous. :lol: I'm happy to just stand close and talk to...
:ep PEOPLE EAT ALPACAS!!!!!! :hit Oh mi gosh, I can't imagine anyone eating my sweet Job! Not at all!! This just makes me tear up thinking someone could eat him!!
He's doing so well, too. He's got his own special feed, and he now comes to me when he sees me bringing his feed he runs to me. :D...
I hope you don't mind, but I pm'ed you.
I knew Alpacas used a communal pile, but didn't think to tell my friend that. I called and left her a message to call me as soon as she can. I think she thought the goats would help keep her Alpaca from being lonely.
What does Alpaca poop look like? I...
Yes, I am in Ohio. :) I'm happy to learn anything I possibly can about Alpacas!
I did tell my friend that hers (she named him Simon) will need a companion, too. She put hers in with her goats, is that Ok?
I'm in Jewett, Ohio. Not sure how far that is from you.
I've named him Job. He and one other Alpaca came through our local Auction barn... and I bought him for almost nothing. I couldn't believe no one was bidding on them.
I would have taken both Alpacas, as I wanted a companion for Job, but my friend was with me and she wanted the second Alpaca...
I have two late in the year broodies! One broody is on 13 eggs....7 Welsummer and 6 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes. The other broody is on 11 eggs...5 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes and 6 mixed bred eggs from my bantams.
Well, I guess I don't make it over here much anymore, but I'm thrilled to see this thread!
We took in a pony, named Emmy, a couple months back. Her coat was dull and she wasn't friendly at all. She's on 100% pasture. That's it. We don't supplement her feed, and we've not medicated her at all...
