    Haha!

    As for the Alpacas being friendly, they are still warming up to us. WE just got them tuedday so they are still adjusting. Dante is the friendliest then william, then Coca. Thankfully they are all halter trained and we csn take them on walks.

    I just got mine too. Dorothy will eat out of my hand, but Rose is more shy. I am looking forward to learning more on this site.
