These days we find frequently find ourselves taking the alpacas on days out to visit schools and other community centres.
Of course, this is all good karma but, and here’s the big secret (don’t tell other breeders or they’ll all be doing it) it’s also great fun!
Alpacas are such natural crowd pleasers, you’re always guaranteed of getting an appreciative audience.
This week saw the roadshow at Narracoorte Primary School.
Sarah took three of the boys, a suri and two huacayas, all very wet, down to introduce them to the youngsters.
We usually follow the same format, a quick talk followed by an opportunity to get up close to the animals. It always goes down well and we leave the school with some handouts and fleece samples to use in project work. A good time is had by all.
