This is a story of Love at first site...The Alpaca Love Story

Ken and Matilda

Ken and Matilda

Sometimes alpacas set me back and remind me of just how special they really are... so loving and so trusting of their own feelings. This stands true for all animals who live with people.

We had a friend bring to our ranch, her 92 year old Uncle Ken. He had just gotten over having a stroke when this photo was taken.

Ken wanted so much to go see the alpacas that lived on the corner of two main roadways. We wheeled Ken into our catch pen and then let some of our young alpaca girls in to see him.

To our surprise one of our girls named Matilda fell in Love in an instant with Ken. She layed down beside his chair and put her head under his hand. Ken fell in Love with Matilda too, as you can see.

Matilda would not let any of the other alpaca girls near Ken. This was her Ken, and Matilda was staking her ground!!

Needless to say...we all had tears in our eyes when Matilda and Ken became good friends.

We went into the house to get our camera and take this special photo of Ken and Matilda. Later Ken and his Neice Patti bought Matilda and her Mother thus starting their own little alpaca herd.

I hope that you all enjoyed this little Love Story as much as we did that day when this Love first began.

Alpaca Blessings to All!!
