I love visiting farms because I dream about farming vegetables and animals in a bigger scale in the future (or after retirement 🙂 ). I found one of the best friendly farms among vegetables and animal farms is actually Alpaca farms. Watching alpacas is very relaxing and holding alpaca infants is very interesting experience. Even if they are only three days old, they can stand up and look already about 1 foot tall.
As you can imagine, alpacas are very soft and light weighted. Interestingly, even though they have nice fibers, they are not good at being outside during winter.
I heard that male alpacas tend to spit at a human, so stay away from male alpacas.
They live about 20 years. We can even pet them at home…
It is always a nice break to visit alpaca farms if you live in a big city or if you just get tired of busy life. Alpacas can certainly relax and entertain you for sure 🙂
