Spending time with, and painting, sheep
has been a fondness of mine for many years.
Sheep and alpaca bond nicely together and
farmers are utilizing alpaca to protect
their flocks of sheep and lambs.

More recently I've had a great opportunity to
learn about, get close to, and enjoy alpacas.

Different from the Huacaya alpaca fleece,
the Suri alpaca have long flowing locks.

Alpacas seem to be far more skittish than
the docile farmyard sheep that I'm accustomed to.
With its beach waves hair style
this alpaca and I got along 'nosey-nosey' fine.
