LGD: Mud Puppies

Every week or so, we wash out the alpacas' water troughs.  We have it set up where most of the water drains away from the corrals, but there's a little bit of water that needs to be dumped out.  I usually dump it into the corrals so the alpacas have a small puddle to splash around in.  They especially like to splash in water on warm days.

Over the last week or two we have been leaving the puppies in the girls' corral while we are doing chores.  This gives them the opportunity to be alone with the alpacas without actually being unsupervised.

The puppies have been wrestling nearly non-stop and we discovered last week that they love water.  So yesterday was the day that everything converged.

In addition to their first mud wrestling match, the puppies also had their first bath.  They were not pleased.

Of course they did forgive us.  :-)

How completely adorable, I love the snapshot where one of the alpaca looks ready to join the scuffle.
