It’s a true pleasure staring out over the fields, gazing at our animals as they go about their business. Every now and again however I get a bit of a shock as I look out over the animals One of these was the first time I saw Algy lying down. Mostly the Alpacas sit down like the sheep, and seem to sleep in that position. So when I saw Algy lying like this:
I panicked. Given the totally supine position I assumed there must be a problem, and so I ran towards him to see if I could help. As absolutely nothing was wrong and he was just having a bit of a kip this rather freaked him out. He leapt to his feet and ran off, making sure to keep me in sight at all times. It took him a little while to trust me again after this.
