This has been going around the interwebs for a couple of days, but I really needed to post this. Because apparently, there are people who aren’t me who have too much time on their hands.
EXTREME SHEPHERDING! (embedding doesn’t work. meh.)
Even though I’m pretty sure this is fake (let’s face it, how could something this cool actually be real), I’m ridiculously entranced by it. Sheep!
Speaking of knittable animals. When I get back to Leipzig, I’ll have to go see Horst, the Zoo’s alpaca, and find out what they do with the hair he sheds. Cause alpacas shed, right? Right? Or at least they have to shear him once a year or so, or he’d be known Horst the Pompom, not Horst the alpaca. I doubt they collect it and/or give it away, but how cool would that be?! It’s shedding time, anyway, for camels too. Hm. It’s worth a try, plus I’ve not yet managed to visit the apparently spectacular zoo.
Alpacas are my new favorite animal, anyway. Not only are they fuzzy, soft and spinnable, they also hum and, get this, ‘orgle’. Whatever the hell that is, I’m just in love with the word. (Apparently it’s some sort of mating song, but I’m having a hard time imagining a singing alpaca)
