Today we trimmed the alpacas’ hooves.
Today for the first time since we got the alpacas (maybe 5 or so years ago), I actually trimmed their hooves. Normally I help hold the alpacas and our friend Andrew trims the hooves.
This is because, despite being OK with sheep and goat hooves, up until today I have basically been terrified of the alpacas – they are big, hard to wrestle and can kick.
But today I did it.
I didn’t do Peanut’s hooves though – my bravery has limits!
Inky Dinky Doo isn’t speaking to us any more. she is also spectacularly good at sitting on her feet – tryig to get a foot out frmo under an alpaca is way harder than you might imagine.
