Missouri + Alpaca = MOPACA! Did you hear (you probably did)? I went to an Alpaca show over the weekend! I planned to stay an hour or so. Pet some alpacas, but some yarn….4.5 hours later I walked out of there with a sketchbook full of goodies.
Alpacas are such a funny looking animal, but they are also sweet (albeit smelly).
Most had no problem with visitors stopping by for a pet (or a hug!).
The judging process did seem to be a little stressful for them. But it was sweet to see their handlers comfort them, hold them, and try to get them to settle down.
