They're here! The girls are finally here!

The transporters, two women from Alpacatown Express, got here around 9pm after running into traffic and traveling all sorts of unfamiliar roads. I was in contact with them yesterday, giving them far more direct directions than Mapquest can handle. They did a terrific job, especially in getting their huge rig in and out of our driveway. One of them (I believe it was Autumn) even brought me a thimble from Arizona, which she had picked up on an earlier leg of this trip. What a sweetheart! Thank you so much, Autumn!

Here's a picture of the new thimble:

And here are the girls!

This is a picture of the four of them together. The big black one is "Got Milk"; her little black baby is Annika; the big beige one is Castanet and her little white baby is Angel.

Here's a close-up of Got Milk and Annika:

And here's a close-up of Castanet and Angel:

They are so pretty, and have such incredible fleece! They are not very approachable yet, though. I suppose I wouldn't be, either, if I'd just been loaded onto a van, traveled half a day, and left in some strange place. The boys come running to eat grain out of my hand; I'm sure the girls will eventually get to that point, too.
