Located in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, I discovered an Alpaca Farm called White Horse Farm. Of course I had to pull over and start shooting these strange looking Alpacas! They look like little wierd llamas, which fascinated me. As it turns out He is a full Peruvian stud. His cria (baby) is due sometime during the first week of October by his girl Lilly! White Horse Farm is a small alpaca farming business producing un-dyed alpaca fiber for sale. The fiber is sold either raw by the pound or in a processed state. Fiber which is ready for spinning, is first cleaned, picked and washed before being carded in to slivers or rolags (a roll of fiber generally used to spin woolen yarn.). White Horse Farm also sends their fiber out to processing mills for spinning. This Alpaca was as curious about me, as I was about him, as my shutter started clicking! I wonder who will end up wearing his sweater!
