Melting Moments......

Mmm..... what can you say !

Tonight I decided to have a moment with the girls and babies, after tea I had a sit in the shelter and guess who decided to join me for company. Yes you guessed girl, Minstrel she sat down right next to me and we had a cuddle, she puts her head on your lap and will stay there for as long as you like having a head stroke ! Zienna and Zullulah joined us and we had quite a gathering at one point.....this was a special alpaca moment, something which is really quite bizarre. How nice is that, completely unrequested and by consent.

After a little while I noticed that Zullulah was having a feed from her mother Marquette. It was really very strange, she was lying down having her strange is that, she has taken to sitting whilst feeding, apparently this is normal to her, its really quite strange how different personalities develop and how some have their own habits likes and dislikes.

These alpacas are quite bizarre and really do enchant you with their behaviour. I felt like Mrs Doolittle at one point....maybe I am reincarnated, sometimes its just what you need to lift your spirits...I think that all animals pick up on your mood, I do believe that they also feel and sense emotions on an animal level, but never the less, definitely respond to your behaviour and body language. Us humans just need to take the time to appreciate it, I think that it gets lost in an all too busy world. However its a bit like stopping to smell the roses, or taking the time to gaze at a beautiful view.......sometimes its there right under your nose, but we don't manage to see it !!!!

Anyway....... On a lighter note....we are starting to thaw......more melting moments are on the way no doubt !!

These silly animals that we love do some wonderfully unexpected things occasionally.

They get to depend on you, and they won't let you down. They.ll even give you a laugh at times.

Absolutely Jayne....they just seem to know when we need that special of the many things that make them so special that they take over our lives!

They certainly do know how to read us don't they. We were melting but I have woken to more snow this morning unfortunately.

It can't last for ever so I'm thinking it's got to thaw real soon, hasn't it!
