Amazing Graze

Categories: Out and About.

On a wonderful weekend, the last one in September, we went to visit the Amazing Graze alpaca farm in Stirling.  They have farm days and an open house 3 or 4 times a year.  If you have never had the chance to visit alpacas you should see if there is a farm near you or if you are in my area stop by and visit the farm in Stirling.  If you can’t visit in person, be sure to check out the website where you can see photos and lots of info on these animals.

They look so adorable in their photo don’t they?  But they are even more adorable to see in person.  They look so soft you just want to reach out and touch them.

I’m sharing this with Signs, Signs.

The trees are beginning to look lovely in their fall colours.  I really should be out collecting some nice blemish free ones to press.  I think  daycation a bit further north next week will yield some nice ones.

The alpacas are very inquisitive and all come over to the fence when we went to see the crias (young ones).  The grandkids had fun feeding them some grass through the fence.

On the way up in the van our grandson was discussing what they eat, and was pleased to see them munching on some grass when we got there.

This one was greeting everyone as they arrived.

In the barn there was alpaca yarn, so soft and colourful, some knitted items and lots of ribbons that the alpacas have won at different fairs and contests.  I couldn’t resist buying some of the yarn for a new project.  The yarn is labelled with the names of the alpacas that it came from.

The alpacas were certainly making the most of this wonderful weather as well.

The baby cria (bottom right) was so adorable in two different colours.  We all learned a lot about alpacas and will certainly be going back on another open day.

Thanks Amazing Graze Alpacas.

It’s time to share where we live with Our World Tuesday
