2012 was an interesting year at our farm. We had just moved in and had yet to even acquire our first alpaca. However, the critters we did have were already jockeying for position in the political hierarchy.
Being a civilized democracy, we decided to have our first ever farm election.
Sue vs. Charlie. Chicken vs. Dog. BOK vs. BARK!
The hens rallied behind Sue and embarked on an aggressive social media campaign against Charlie.
Then the campaign started getting ugly.
Not to be outdone, Charlie also lead a strong campaign via Facebook.
However, as was the case with his opposition, Charlie’s campaign started getting dirty.
It was coming down to the wire, with each candidate trying desperately to distance themselves from his/her opponent.
They each made their final appeal to the voting Facebook public.
In the end, after all of the Facebook votes were counted, we had our first Farm President!
President Charlie soon realized just how challenging the job can be as we started introducing a new species shortly after the election.
