Hitch out with the big boys

Today was a big day for one of our new alpacas, Hitch. After being with us for a while now and had some training being haltered and done 10 minutes of leading around the woods with Isaac it was time for Hitch’s first On Farm Trek.

Considering he has never done this 1 hour walk before he was very calm and inquisitive. He didn’t pull or flag behind and even had a 10 minute go at leading the trek. Halfway round he did start to “hum” a bit, this means he is a little unsure. Probably because he was the furthest away from the rest of the male herd that he has ever been and was a little unsure, as soon as he realised we were heading back to the other boys he soonย got his confidence back and did brilliantly for his first ever trek. Next time he goes out he will be much more confident and calm. Well done Hitch!
