Country star Luke Bryan and his wife Caroline have added a pair of alpacas to their growing menagerie at Brett’s Barn, according to Taste of Country on Feb. 2. Caroline posted pictures of the curious creatures in an Instagram gallery of the farm.
The wide-eyed alpacas looked at the camera for their portrait. Caroline posted it on Instagram and wrote, "Pekka and Mister! Arrived to Brett’s Barn this past December. Mister likes hugs and Pekka wants to be in everyone’s conversation. Right up in your face!”
Brett’s Barn was created in memory of Bryan’s niece Sadie Brett, who died at the age of just seven months old due to health complications. The Bryans converted one of their old barns into a shelter for rescue animals in honor of their niece.
Caroline also highlighted some of the other adorable residents of Brett’s Barn, including a pair of donkeys, horses, goats, and more. She posted a picture of the cute donkeys on Instagram, stating, "Two feet move our body. Four feet move our soul. Brett’s Barn. We love this place and all our animals."
The country star surprised his wife with a pair of baby kangaroos named Margo and Todd for Christmas. The sweet gesture drew criticism from the animal rights organization PETA, according to Billboard.
Bryan will play 15 stadium dates on the What Makes You Country XL Tour in 2018. The star will be joined on the tour by Sam Hunt, Carly Pearce, Morgan Wallen, and Jon Pardi. He will be the first country star to play at Dodger Stadium, home of the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to Taste of Country. The stadium tour will also include Fenway Park in Boston, Wrigley Field in Chicago, Ford Field in Detroit, Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Target Field in Minneapolis, and MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, among others.
