Well, it has been a rather exciting week here in Tennessee. There are currently about 6 inches of snow on the ground with negative temperatures off and on all week. Not that we didn't learn to deal with that in Wisconsin, it just makes things interesting on the farm.
We made it through all the A's ...So the first of the B's is Barbosa. He is almost 2 1/2 years old. Barbosa was born at Mesa Trail Alpacas and I think he hit the ground running. Full of energy and attitude, I remember him climbing the guard llama like a little goat. He has always been up for shenanigans. Starting with his color.. Barbosa had a brother that was classic grey. We anticipated that the same pairing would give us grey again, but Barbosa does his own thing. The lovely black accents on his face and legs are deceptive since his fiber really is a dark espresso brown.
Since the weather has been so cold and snowy, we decided to go with another hat, this time from Barbosa's fiber. It will be available in the store along with what's left of his yarn (not much- we are still processing fiber from 2020 shearing).
Thank you Barbosa for the silly attitude and all the laughter it brings us!
