A few years ago I was enamored by a LLama named Bolt whom I met at a farm in Goshen, CT in 2019.
I didn’t know much about llamas and somehow thought they only lived in some far off land – many of us who grew up in NYC feel that way.
Researching the quiet corner of CT I stumbled upon an alpaca farm and wondered what’s the difference between a llama and an alpaca?
They both spit. The difference is primarily in their size and the coarseness of their hair – alpaca hair being softer and finer. I bought a winter headband as a momento.
They were super friendly- especially baby Harold. So friendly we had to be taught how to put up our hand to move them back! They very much enjoyed selfies I found. As you can see they were hamming it up and photo bombing my shots!
It was a happy day with the Alpacas. There were also other animals at the farm and the tour was an hour for $15 with the owner who was a great guide. His wife was running the store. Sweet couple!
