CHOCOLATE, VANILLA & CARAMEL


I have been fascinated by alpacas for a really long time. I remembered seeing a photo of one for the first time, it looked to me like a child's drawing gone wrong, a child who somehow got his sheep and goats and camels all mixed up in one.


So I was excited to visit the Honeyfields alpacas.


This is the newest baby to the farm, it was still rather weak and Babara, the owner wasn't too sure at first if it was going to make it. I'm glad it did.


Nice and shorn for summer, with a little tuft on top for style.


It wasn't that I was particularly hungry, but their colours really looked like chocolate, vanilla and caramel to me.


I wasn't quite sure how I would find the 'child's drawing' in real life, but now it makes perfect sense :)

    1. I'm really fond of animals that look a bit 'wrong', like giraffes (neck too long) and whales (erm, too big?)

    2. i was looking at pictures of zebras recently and felt the same way. they honestly look so weird! as if they're naturally striped like that!

    3. Oh yes the zebras, they also looked 'wrong' to me for the longest time. I've just solved their mystery recently, apparently they're white on black even though some have full white bellies, which means that their black bellies were 'painted over' with white, isn't that funny?

  2. I love alpacas, they always look so funny. Nice collection of pictures. You are right, their fur has the color of vanilla, chocolate and caramel.

  6. Lucky you. They look so cute. I'd been meaning to visit the alpaca farm in Nasu for a very long time, but I don't think we'll be visiting there anymore for a while...shame.

    1. Hello Ai san, yeap we were lucky to find it, there aren't that many alpaca farms in NZ as compared to if you want to see sheep or cattle. I have been waiting to visit the one in Nasu too since I heard about it sometime back. Is it not safe now?
