Hot days

Hot days are really hard on alpacas. They do not handle the heat well. We usually will hose them off (spray cold water on their bellies) to help them cool down. Though only some of them like this. Max and Snowstorm are the biggest fans of this. Victoria and Kateri will let us spray them too, though they cush in it (sit down on the ground when wet). Mattie and Sommer won't have anything to do with it. Sancha usually won't stand there to have her belly sprayed, but if the pool is out, she will step in and wet down her belly.

I snatched some pictures of Sancha in the pool. She sat and got up so fast I missed her sitting it in but I got pictures of her getting in. The others like to watch her, but so far none of them have taken a turn.
