Posts Tagged ‘Carnation’

After leaving the scarecrow-riddled Remlinger Farms property in Carnation, you may turn south and see a sign that announces an alpaca farm. If you follow the signs and happen to turn down the correct driveway, you find Cascade Rose Alpacas.

Alpacas are naturals in front of the camera. They seem instinctively curious, and while not huge fans of being petted, they do trot right up to the camera and pose.

The tiny store onsite sells food for $3 a bag so if you lean over the fence these llama cousins are hoping you have treats. A man on a golf cart thought I had treats and barked at me to put my hand through the fence to feed them. It was my camera that the alpacas wanted. Evidently the alpacas will poke their heads through the fence to reach snacks and get stuck.

I failed to get pictures of the big, brave dogs who live in the pastures with the alpacas. Some were mixed breed, some were white, and three enjoyed some dog cookies that I keep in my car for canine friends and relatives.

Look at that grin!

Each alpaca has a unique personality and look.

They have such fabulous hair! I began to walk towards the tiny gift shop intending to see what treasures it held, but the man on the golf cart told me not to go inside because there was a tour group in there.

Someone said the mini-paca was just a few weeks old.

Alpacas are wonderful creatures. This was a fun diversion on an autumn day. Their teeth, I’m told, are designed so they don’t pull up grass by the roots. Their glorious chompers, extreme fluffiness, and big hair are endearing traits that complement their inquisitive, welcoming nature.

Always make time for alpacas.
