Last summer we saw an advert in the local paper about an open day at ‘Lightfoot Alpacas‘ in Hawkhurst. Having never seen an Alpaca, other than yonks ago on badly shot and scratched ‘b’ movie travelogues at the cinema , we decided a drive was essential.
I’m glad we went because they are just sooooo cute and cuddly. I wandered around giggling and working out how they’d get on with the cats.Of course they wouldn’t. They’re social beasts and you have to keep them in a herd or they pine (and not for the fiords).
Later, after coming to my senses, I sadly realised the futilty of bedroom farming and was welcomed back by my trusty teddy bear.
