Most of what we do around our alpacas creates some noise. Some sounds are more comforting than others.
I am curious, how do your alpacas respond to you singing to them? Or is it just me who often sounds foolish and gets funny looks from the alpacas?
Humming to them can be problematic unless you are clear about what you are saying in the moment – reassuring or stress-inducing. Learning to speak alpaca is a good thing to aim for. Read the field, read the animal in front of you and read the sound or silence they are making.
Finding new ways to communicate with your alpacas is great fun. Give it a try and let me know which songs they prefer where you are.
Quick shout out to a place in the UK I often use for supplies – from syringes to coats and lots of valuable things in between. This is where I got the adult alpaca coats to keep my older girls warm and dry. Homestead Farm Supplies.
