Alpaca Photos-a.m., Blog p.m.

Fox Run's Martello by Torbio peeks into the barn

Marti’s been out “rolling in the hay.” He is pure white with one spot–on his blanket, of course. But he also has Grade 1 fleece. That spot means no shows for Marti, but that fleece is so soft and nice.

Demelza and Fantine share the same famous grandfather, McGyver, and the same father, Fox Run Suri Alpacas’ up-and-coming Nomar. Their fleeces will look cleaner once we are in Oklahoma, I hope–lots and lots of dust here in Utah.

Our first show, first ribbon

The question here is, who was more terrified, Demelza or me–or Tom holding the camera? And another thing to note if you ever take a true-black to a show: when we had the prize-winning photo taken I had to change pants. A true-black alpaca who stands about that tall makes for a pretty funny-looking photo when she stands in front of someone wearing black jeans even when a professional photographer takes the picture.

I’ll be back later with more pictures of alpacas.
