A model alpaca...


Who would think you'd find a model alpaca in Ocala, the "Horse Capitol of the World"?

Awwww...I love alpacas. I have only seen a couple here in Montreal, in a nature park.

Very progressive cut for an Alpaca, ha ha. So what golf courses did that magazine mention. Black Mesa? Marty Sanchez?

Oh, that is perfect! He is goofy and gorgeous at the same time. I really love this one. It looks like you caught him in a moment of quiet contemplation, dreaming of some sort of gourmet hay, no doubt.

Ha! Great photo, what a poser!

i wonder if my hairdresser can give me the same look.

SRQ said...

Oh, he's a wreck...in an adorable way. That messy fur...hay strewn about his head...discolored buck teeth -- he's perfect! Nice find, Lowell.

Sharon said...

Not me! Love that hair-do!

Birdman said...

Get ready to pucker!

Amber said...

Amber said...

Cant get enough of this cute guy! Love this!

Judy said...

Oh my gosh!1 This is so cute. That hairdo is the best. That would be a strange looking horse.

They make the funniest faces. There are a lot of Alpaca farms out this way. And Llamas too. Alpaca's are grown mostly for fiber and it is supposedly the best. MB

And a red-head even!

Even though we live in a conifer forest we don't have the large bushy tail, what I call city squirrels, here. We see an occasional Douglas Squirrel which is a real cute small black and tan cutie. Also called a Chickaree or Pine Squirrel and not the big Eastern
gray. And never around the feeders. So I guess we are lucky.

Cute....and he seems to have a bit of an overbite.

EG CameraGirl said...

An alpaca with attitude, methinks.

Kay said...

Get thee an orthodontist! (And find a new groomer, too.) Oh, but you are really cute just the way you are. . .

Re. your comment yesterday: horse is still eaten here though it has become much rarer. It used to be very popular until about 50-60 years ago. My grandparents ate it so I'm sure I must have too, though I don't remember it...

Danielle said...

We have one of these farms just up the road from us...but I can NEVER get this close!!! This one is a cutie!!

Halcyon said...

Fantastic capture, Lowell! Alpacas are so cute.
