Chance’s inner alarm needs to be reset. He had to go out at 6:30 AM. It was raining. It rained on and off all day, the high was about 55 degrees. Several people we talked to said “At least it isn’t the white stuff.” We may have had one very light frost, but have escaped a hard freeze.
Some of the trees have colored to a golden light orange, even in the rain they were striking.
Have you ever been to an Alpaca farm? Me neither. This little guy in the purple coat was just four hours old. We had a wonderful tour of an Alpaca Farm by a fellow named Scott.
This weekend was National Alpaca Farm Tour Days. I bet I could raise Alpacas if I had a barn and if I were younger, and had hay land and two guard dogs. I am super impressed with their fleece and their personalities. They all poop in a communal spot..easy keepers for sure…one area to clean up instead of the whole barn and barn yard.
If you are ever in the Backus area you might want to check out their farm. After the farm tour we headed over to the Chain Saw Carving Event in Hackensack… more about that some other day. It was a fun day..we came home and had a nap:)
