    Alpacas are cute, fuzzy animals that have been part of agriculture for the longest time. These beautiful creatures have unique personalities, sensitive to their environments and are docile in nature. That’s why there’s a holiday dedicated to these lovely animals and it’s called Alpaca Day.

    We were at a wildlife park on Sunday and we showed my granddaughter the Alpacas. She refused to believe that they were Alpacas and spent the next ten minutes saying 'I want to see the Pacas'.

    I go to a farm that keeps them. Not sure why, but something tells me she said for wool?

    One of the local alpaca farmers breeds them for meat as well as wool.
    Very tasty they are too.
    Anyone for an alpaca burger?
