Once Upon a Time there was a man who worked hard at his small business and was under a lot of stress. The man had a wife who liked to write stories for their grandchildren. One day she wrote a story about an alpaca and, along the way, discovered a lot about the quizzical critters. So the man and his wife went to visit an alpaca farm. The man said Ahhhhhhh! And his wife said Ooooooo! And the man and his wife were hooked!

And, Once Upon a Time, there was an old dilapidated horse barn with a little bit of land near where the man and his wife lived. It was very dreary looking. But then Sunshine and Annie came to the barn and brought their pals Coco Moco and Little Ricky. They brightened the barn and warmed the hearts of everyone who came to visit. Soon Carmeltina and her cria (baby) came to join the others. They all played and ran around the pasture together and delighted everyone who came to see them.

Every day the man and his wife came home from work and went up to the barn to visit the alpacas. They gave them some fresh water, some hay and a little feed. Then they watched the alpacas jump and run and play. And the man said Ahhhhhhh! And his wife said Oooooooo! The outside world melted away and their happily ever after began.
