A llama will also defend the herd it is living in, whether it is a herd of llamas, goats, or sheep. An alpaca isn't as brave. If danger arrives they all scatter and it is every alpaca for himself. We don't eat llamas or alpacas but use their fur to make fabric just like a sheeps wool but it is much more expensive. They really don't make great pets, they are ornery and like to spit a thick green mucus on you. (YUCK!) Luckily none of us got spit on and the kids each got a chance to pet the animals if they wanted to. Some students were very brave while a few preferred to just watch.
Farmer Sean also brought back the baby pigs from the week before. They have grown so much. Miss Meghan loved holding the baby pig while the kids got to pet him. This week Farmer Sean brought in chickens, ducks, a turkey, and baby chicks. And the black baby pig came back to tag along as well. He was wandering the halls at TotSpot having lots of fun. Next time Farmer Sean comes we will be bring ponies with him! There are so many other fun things during the week for our students to do.
