Alpaca Tribe by Steve Heatherington – be more alpaca

You have heard of “Be More Pirate” but have you heard of Be More Alpaca? An antidote to election non-news – it starts by considering some characteristics of alpacas and examples from my herd that demonstrate them.

After all, alpacas are:

  • Calm–they rarely rush around, and their gentle disposition soothes those in their vicinity
  • Graceful–they are such beautiful creatures you can’t help but smile when you see them
  • Distinctive–don’t be fooled by their cute appearance, they have colourful individual personalities
  • Shrewd–they weigh up the situation and carefully consider the options
  • Hardy–they’re adaptable and cope well with the cold, though Welsh damp sometimes goes too far
  • Inquisitive–they’re curious and interested in what’s going on around them, nothing gets past them
  • Inclusive–how they look out for each other, especially for the youngsters, is heartwarming
