standoff

| | 0 comments
Oakley poses for the group of boys across the way

After a long summer of being separated by nearly a quarter of a mile, the large group of boys moved up to their winter paddock this weekend, which means that Oakley in the girls' paddock can now see the other boys.

Boo stares at Oakley, wishing for a closer view

This has made for some very interesting non-verbal interactions between the two groups.

Lots of raised-tail stances, even some hippity-hoppity moves.

{Did you know that intact male alpacas fight for dominance by trying to bite each others cajones?}

Luckily {unluckily?} for Boo, his have already been removed.

The boys stare at Oakely

For now we'll leave the groups as they are, since Oakley gets along well with the girls and having him removed from the boys group means less fighting.

Oakley

Sorry chum, you're staying put.

Cheers -
