It no longer surprises me but continues to amaze me, the way alpacas look at things. They really don’t miss much.
They love seeing themselves in reflections. I so enjoy Julie Taylor-Brown’s story of the milking parlour from episode 15 – here it is again.
As well as good daytime vision and noticing cows moving on the horizon, they have brilliant night time vision and a tendency to chase foxes. Sometimes cats, rabbits, our dogs and even hats, also attract their attention.
I sometimes sand and watch them grazing or chewing the cud – only to suddenly become aware, again, that they are also watching me.
Go watch and alpaca.
