As some of you may already be aware from the little snipets in our newsletters, I have a strong interest and passion for animals big and small and can't help but share with our readers their wonderful nature and the work I do with them.
I have focused over the last few months on training my alpacas. These camelids originally from South America have a strong wild instinct which makes it really hard for us, Humans, to care for them without using restraint. After years of frustration, trials and mostly errors, i can finally say that i have made progress in gaining the trust of my little herd.
