Bursting into Song

We acquired a new alpaca, Dodge City Miss Kitty. Being that one of my main theme songs has been Toby Keith's "Should've Been a Cowboy" (video here), I can't help but sing to Miss Kitty.

I bet you've never heard ole Marshall Dylan say
Miss Kitty have you ever thought of running away
Settling down would you marry me
If I ask you twice and beg you pretty please
She'd of said Yes in a New York minute
They never tied the knot
His heart wasn't in it
He just stole a kiss as he road away
He never hung his hat up, at Kitty's place

I shoulda been a cowboy
I shoulda learned to rope and ride
Wearing my six-shooter, riding my pony, on a cattle drive
Stealing young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh, I should've been a cowboy

I might of had a side kick with a funny name
Running wild through the hills chasing Jesse James
Ending up on the brink of danger
Riding shotgun for the Texas Rangers
Go west young man, haven't you been told
California's full of whiskey, women and gold
Sleeping out all night beneath the desert stars
With a dream in my eye, and a prayer in my heart

I shoulda been a Cowboy
I shoulda learned to rope and ride
Wearing my six-shooter, riding my pony on a cattle drive
Stealing young girl's hearts
Just like Gene and Roy
Singing those campfire songs
Oh, I should've been a cowboy [x4]


Miss Kitty is a bit overweight, so she has come to our farm for a slimming diet. We hope to get her weight down. She is being fed a small amount of grain, while locked in a pen with Victoria and Lucy, our resident piggy girls. We will see how this works to help her lose weight. We have other ideas of how to get weight off her if this doesn't work.

The exciting part about Miss Kitty is that she has genetics from Snowmass, her pedigree is loaded with incredible names.


Adding:
I need to get some good recent pictures of Miss Kitty. The only one I've taken so far is a snow one:
