Unlike Rose, who is still tiny, with a thing about closed gates, gotta get through first at any cost.

Harley is much sweeter and cares about others.

Harley: Mith, are you dead?

Mith:  Piss off Harley.

LOL...how wide is Rose ????!! she can certainly Sqeeeze LOL


these pups are weird ...they are different from others we've had . I just keep laughing!!!  :rofl:

They hardly eat .... they will deign to have 2 meals a day(fresh) ..but at their own pace .....and don't complain if they sometimes just get one!!  (yes they have self serv puppy kibble  all night ..never touched) They will flop down and nibble away at a ball of pet mince or some chicken wing bits ...mostly sharing ....and think it's heaven if they score a piece of big dog kibble  for sitting & not getting in my way when I feed the adults 

they LOOVE Bruce the sheep ..he's their mobile  lolly/snack dispenser ..... 
They also got the message in one lesson , that when cars start , and make that VROOOM noise ...it's time to retreat away from where the cars are parked . They will never get run over  now :) 
one of their favourite play surfaces is on top of some fencing panels .laying flat .. steel panels covered in fine chicken wire! ... they have their toys on there ..and just love it 



weird, I say ....

What is it about alpacas lying around like they are dead... Cadbury, the one at my work does it all the time too... lol! When he's not humping Cardigan the sheep anyways... errr!

 

I bet the Boss is really chuffed with these 2 boys perse... hopefully they'll turn into really productive workers for his team.

Alpacas in Australia are vitamins A&D deficient.  They need supplement injections twice a year, and a lot of owners won't or don't because it's all too difficult (and that shot, Hideject is the best, should always be accompanied by a CophosB or similar vB shot to enable uptake etc).  The lying flat is to expose the greatest surface area to the sun for vitamin exchange in their system, it's a survival thing, hardwired to do it.  (For those not supplement injecting, Anitone is the best oral supplement, it was formulated for camelids and is a good second-best treatment).

 

The humping is another issue though: a lot of sheep are killed by alpacas doing this, it's just a management thing as in never run an entire male with ewes, and watch the castrated ones: especially singletons - that's like keeping a chimpanzee alone and not expecting aberrant behaviours with other species, generally with some aggression.  Sheep anatomy can't cope with alpacas humping, both the weight and biological equipment, so they can have their back broken or internal rupture or both.

I'll bring the vitamin thing up with our vet next week when he visits... he's actually an Alpaca specialist, so he will be able to give Cadbury a good going over.

 

Cardigan tends to just lie down and makes the exchange take as little time as possible... but I've noticed that Cadbury is actually humping him less lately.

 

Cadbury is a single desexed male.
