So, that year I spent in TX (when I left DC but then ultimately came back)...John and I kinda stumbled into the world of alpacas. I can't quite recall how it happened...I think John came across alpacas online as "an investment". Their fleece is quite valuable (it's hypoallergenic) and if you show them, breeding can be profitable, too. Plus, they're just so darn CUTE!
We currently have 3...Jerret is the white and burgundy one, Rose is the light brown one, and her baby, the dark brown one, is called Hojoro.
And they LOVE when it snows!!!
