I woke up this morning to the sound of a big trailer pulling up to the gate. Who could this be, I wondered? Louie said he didn’t know who it was and I am sure if was for our herd, he would have known in advance since he is management! When the trailer opened, our human took out a very pretty little brown girl alpaca. I thought she was very cute. She was taken to my mom’s herd and we eventually found out her name was Coco, and she was joining my mom’s herd. I watched as mom, Anica, Penelope, and the llamas showed Coco the “ropes.” I was very happy to see my mom’s herd grow, just like our herd grew with Maserati and Tali. I love watching my mom because she is the boss of the girl’s herd. Soon Coco was “shadowing” her as she did her rounds around the pasture. The other boys teased me because they could tell I liked Coco. I blushed a little and tried to change the subject by rolling on the ground and doing a “dirt bath.”. Thankfully, they joined me and all was forgotten for now! When I got up from the dirt, I actually saw Coco look over at me and smiling. Hopefully, my herd mates didn’t notice that too! Now that would be embarrassing! It's fun to sit in my pasture and watch my mom and the girl herd go through their routines. Sometimes I just watch and see how they do things and try to learn something new each time. I think Coco sees my watching and stops doing her job. My mom usually looks over at me and I look away. I don't want to interrupt the girls work, but it is fun to watch them anyway. Hopefully someday I can be a herd leader like my mom and maybe get to say hello to Coco. Yea, I think I would like that. Well time to quite writing and get back to grazing! I have to keep up with the other boys or they will pick on me, or even worse Louie will spit at me! Trust me, that isn't fun at all! Later, B!
