Around 8:00 PM last night, I glanced out the window and saw the alpacas grazing in the back field. Rosie and CeCe looked a little on edge but the alpha female, Alaurea, seemed pretty calm. I saw an alpaca walking along the edge of the woods and it was then I realized that animal was too dark in color to be one of our females. It was, in fact, a deer. CeCe and Rosie approached cautiously and the deer ran in the opposite direction. I’m not sure how the deer got into the enclosure but she probably ambled through the deep woods. She got a little spooked when she tried to run out toward the house and was trapped by fences. Eventually she ran back into the woods. The girls went back to grazing and will most likely welcome new friends again this summer.
