Another early alpaca baby, born yesterday. There were no signs when Hannah came up to feed this morning only when I was hoovering up the paddock I saw Hannah laying on her side, which was not unusual with the warm sunny weather all the girls have been taking turns at reclining taking the rays, and I could just make out a nose peeping out, 10.22am, then by 10.30am baby was on the ground taking her first breath. What a lovely first day she had, text book birth although baby came early there were no signs of prematurity. I know there were no mix ups with the dates as Hannah only needed to sit for the male, Smokey Joe, once. Just going back down to the paddocks for afternoon feeding for the two new mums and the expectant mums.
