We’re Loki and Freya. Our human Mom named us after Norse Gods and Goddesses, because she came from a place called Norway. We’re pretty sure that is far away.
Loki is the God of Mischief. Freya is the very feminine Goddess of Love. We’re pretty special.
Loki: I love to play and am always making my people laugh. Not so much my Alpaca Mom though. One day recently, I ran toward the fence at full speed and turned just at the last moment. This scares everyone. I know I’m really fast, and can even run faster than Freya. Sometimes I let her beat me though, because I really adore her. She needs me to protect her because she is smaller and more delicate than I am.
Freya: Loki is my best friend, but sometimes he thinks he’s the boss of me. I really am faster than he is. REALLY. Why, the other day, I waited until he wasn’t looking and ran past him so fast it made his fleece blow back from his face. He tried, but he couldn’t catch me. I noticed that the humans were doubled over and shaking, so I walked up slowly because I didn’t want to frighten them. I was concerned they might be hurt. It turned out that they were laughing at us! It was fun to be so entertaining to them, so we took off at a gallop again. That Loki sure gets silly when the humans laugh.
Loki: We hear the older Alpacas talking about being ‘adopted’, and how much fun it is to have a family with kids. Some came to look at us a few days ago. They had two Cria – the little girl was a toddler and her brother was a little older. Kind of like Freya and me! I hope they’ll come back for us. They seemed kind and said they really thought we were beautiful. The Mom wants to ‘knit’, whatever that is. She talked about it a lot while she felt our fleece, so maybe ‘knitting’ has something to do with petting us.
Dinnertime! There’s lots of competition for those yummy pellets, so we better go.
