can you please help me understand why an alpaca as apposed to a goat or cow? I get that they are kinda cute but what purpose do they serve? There are some people that you can just look into their eyes and see the lights are on but no bodies home. I see that same blank look in the alpacas. hercsmama there is an alpaca in the second picture that you posted I don't know if it's honey or elmo but the lighter colored one has this same look. Please don't be mad at me.
