    We Like Snow!!!

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     bwells shared a photo his wife, Pamela, captured of a herd of alpacas running through the snow. 'It took several tries to get the photo because the alpacas were racing by so quickly,' he said. They photographed the alpacas while visiting Pamela's sister's farm, Northern Solstice Alpaca farm, in Unity, Maine, in late December. He says alpacas are quite comfortable being in the snow. 'They have a great deal of warm fleece, so the cold doesn't bother them. Their fleece is actually much warmer than wool,' he said. 'They get quite excited in new snow and are willing to race as a herd about the pasture.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    Yearling alpacas in Unity, Maine love the snow!. They joyfully race through the pasture, encouraged by my friend Neil. Only a few alpaca feet connect with the ground in this photo. A fun and invigorating sprint for all. Photo taken by my wife Pamela Wells.
