Mixed emotions

Today I sold my first alpaca to somebody else!
I sold one of my suri girls - Bozedown Riva - and I'm not quite sure how I feel about the sale . On one hand I'm glad to have some cash coming in , on the other I love all my alpacas ( except Kirtsy at the moment) and it was a bit of a wrench to see her go . I'm sure that she will be loved and cared for , just not by me and that feels a bit odd . What will it be like when the children leave home ?

I feel your pain, I had two mums and their babies go yesterday and I cried!!

I'm sure it was tough to sell your alpaca, but believe me, it's different with kids. I've always taken the attitude that my parenting job is complete enough for the kids to move on when they are potty trained, educated, and employed. Of course, that doesn't mean they are out of our lives, they are just independent. That's when they become colleagues and friends.

Hi Suzanne,

I just dropped in to tell you I left something for you on my blog today. ;)
