I got kissed today....

By an alpaca!! My god they were soft and cute and this one liked me enough to kiss

Can you see Toby the baby? he's only 3 days old. All the alpacas were just shaved about 3 weeks ago so they don't have much hair. They are curious animals...almost like dogs or cats. I just thought they were the cutest things ever.

My boss owns this farm. It's a little something him and his wife do on the side. I on the other hand take the fleece and clean it, spin it and make yarn to knit with! However...this is the first time i've ever been around the actual animal. I think i'm alergic. My eyes burned and watered like i was crying buckets. But yet when I have just the dirty fleece I get nothing, no reaction. Odd.

Aren't they adorable!?

They look very cute! Maybe you're allergic to the grass out there, or something in the air. Some pollen that comes off nearby trees?
