He was a fair age, and we were told when he arrived in Australia, most likely older than his birth date given from Peru, as he was aged by teeth over 7 when we got him in 1995.
It has been a very sad day, he came up as if to say his last goodbyes the night before.
You have to understand Stefano was more human than an alpaca, and his paddock was in front to the left of the house, and so if ever he wanted anything or as in last winter when he did feel the cold, he would come to us, to let us know.
Elyse fed him yesterday Rob said he was looking really good, but at about lunch time, Elyse went over- he was kushing, and just looked old, so she sat with him and was talking to him, and he put his head on her shoulder and he died, she is devastated, and we are all very sad, we had a burial for him in our garden last night.,
We are still saddened.
