Since this blog is Jack and the Alpacas and it's mostly about the pacas, I want to start with a cute, cute picture of the boys and Jack! Love that they touch noses through the fence. Jack got into the pasture once and they didn't even run! They looked at him, he looked at them and I grabbed him up and took him out of pasture! Most of the time they are fascinated with him and he just ignores them!
2014 was really uneventful for the boys. Now that's me speaking, I'm not sure what they would say. They went for a ride in April and received their annual "haircut" shearing. And I guess uneventful wasn't really even correct for me - as I took them by myself! I drove the truck and trailer to the farm where the shearing took place and the boys that are supposed to cush down - that's lay down for us decided to stand and look out the trailer most of the way there. I pulled off the road twice to make sure they were ok! Yes, I can be a nervous Nellie! And, of course, it took me and Bill to get them in the trailer in the first place - I didn't want to make it sound like I just walked them in and drove off! Nope!!!

We got chickens! The boys loved watching the chickens over the fence at our neighbors and then the neighbors moved! But, not such a bad deal for the boys as we got the chickens! Now they watch over the fence at their own chickens. They do seem to be so fascinated with these fluffy little Silkie chickens and we're loving the eggs.
And so the summer passed safely with our crazy heat and you see that they still love the water hose in the summer months.
|Pancho loves to lay on the hose or sprinkler!|
|Lefty still prefers to just drink from the end of the hose and no picture of Sam because I'm too close to him - he loves it on his stomach!|
Hope you enjoyed my recap of 2014!
