Costume Parades and Alpacas

Look what I found at the Harvest Ho Down - some Alpacas ....from a new Alpaca farm right here in my town.
These are two of their alpacas, Salt and Pepper. The first thing I wanted to know was what they do with their fleece! They haven't done anything with it yet, but plan to have it processed and spun as soon as they can find a place to do it. They are such gentle animals.
This is my grandson talking to and petting them.
My DH wants to know if I want to get some - he thinks he's being funny, but I do think it would cut down on the grass mowing. Maybe when I retire?
And here is poor Casper dressed as King Casper for the pet parade - he wasn't very happy, but did win a dog biscuit.

And the costume parade - the mermaid with the purple hair is Tori.

That's a great costume, was it home made or store bought?

Dave wanted us to get some alpaca about 15 years ago and I wouldn't do it . . . silly me!

There are about three or four farms not far from my house.
