Cria # 5

Well, surprise, surprise, Fawndew wasn't acting right this morning. Sure enough she was in labor. She was due either Aug. 4th or perhaps Aug. I guess Aug. 13 is right in the middle & must be perfect. A pretty little boy, brown with a white spot. Looks a lot like Sadie's boy. One leg back, so intervention needed............................She is/was a maiden, so we'll see how she does.

Pictures to follow.

This is all so exciting!
What does it mean is alpaca speak to be a "maiden"?

Well, a maiden is an alpaca who has never had a baby before (I presume never been pregnant also). It is such a lovely "old fashioned" sounding name, isn't it?
