An Addition to our Herd
On Monday, June 30, 2014, a cria was born!
We had been expecting Nadia to give birth and had separated her in preparation. I checked the herd that morning around 7:15 and everything was fine. However, around 10:00 I received a call at work from someone who had come to work on our house. He said a baby alpaca was running around outside of the barn and pasture. He said he would keep an eye on things until Dave could get home. When Dave arrived, he found a newborn cria outside of the pens. He took it into the pen and quickly realized it was not Nadia's but Peyton's cria! Peyton is a great mom and immediately began caring for the newborn. A little later, she was nursing her baby. Now, two days later, momma and cria are doing great!
