Fairwell to Annie
Today was the day we said goodbye to Anticipation Annie.
Annie was the first cria born on our farm and as such, held a special place in our hearts.
She was such a special girl, from her beautiful markings to her personality, Annie stood out in the crowd.
Many little kids mistook her for a cow with her black and white pattern resembling a Holstein.
She was the boss of the girls pasture and all newcomers had to endure her indoctrinating them into the herd.
"This is my farm and I may let you live here, but know that I'm in charge!"
I'm often asked "How long do alpacas live?" I think from now on my answer will be "Not long enough."
Things just won't be the same around here without our Annie, but I know that she lived a good life here and was well cared for.
Run free again Annie, we will never forget you.
