PA snap judgment

Stand Closer
Ae Freisligh

Brushing skittish alpaca
Stand closer others told me
It hurts less when they’ll kick ya
As they attempt to bolt free

Though I had this truth in-head
As their back legs came rushing
I’d leap like a youth instead
Then I’d continue brushing

I love alpacas!

Has one really kicked you?

Some of them don't like to be brushed out on shearing day and they do kick and spit.
