Better Hay

J found some "alpaca hay" in the paper that was for sale in a nearby town. He snatched it up quick as we have been looking for some good hay (not only were we running low on hay, but the hay we had was not very good, it was geared for horses, much too brown and full of stalks, not ideal for alpacas). This hay is much better (orchard grass). I could tell when he opened the trailer that it even smelled different. It is more green, and was grown for alpacas (a nearby alpaca farm, Moon Stone, had asked this farmer to grow hay for them, they had some additional hay that they advertised for sale, we just happened to stumble across it).

It's hard to see in the picture, but this hay is much more green than what we had:

Here are the alpacas eager to get a taste of the new hay (you can see some of the brown/yellow older hay on the ground):

The alpacas swarming the new hay (Kateri was the smart one, she went to the other bucket while the others all gathered around the same one):
