It finally happened, after almost a year...Windsor, our stand-offish alpaca finally came up and nibbled a few pellets from my hand! Of course, there were no witnesses and no camera....and of course, the next time I went to the barn with Andy, Windsor refused to do it again. In fact, he pretty much acted like I was dreaming and it had never happened.
Well Mr. King of JADA Farms....I now have proof!!!
Actually, this has gone from being a one time thing to a habit. Windsor now waits patiently while the feeding dishes are filled for his 5 barn mates, standing right behind me waiting for me to turn around with his portion.
And where he used to spit and push the others out of the way, being a greedy alpaca, he know has even learned to share....once in a while...
Windsor has officially become Mom's Boy and I for one am loving every minute of it!
