I took the girls down in the valley today. We went to my parents and then we all went to a local Alpaca farm. Hailey, who's deathly afraid of all four legged animals, was amazingly brazen and brave. She ran up to a few feet behind her sister as the oldest tried to feed the yearling male alpacas some rabbit food. The yearlings weren't sure what to make of it, but they were curious about the small humans and spent a lot of time investigating the diminutive humans from a distance.
Overall, it was a wild success. The humans came out unscathed and the alpacas continued wearing their amusing haircut, which left their legs and heads with full hair, but their bodies shorn.
We had lunch with my parents where the girls ate fairly well and my father all but killed himself trying to pay the bill.
Apart from Cora being so far away, it was a good, good day.
