Busy Weekend and Workshop
Had a busy weekend catching up, checking the records to organise the next group of alpacas ready for their birthing dates. We have one young alpaca who was put with the stud 19th July, she already has her udder bagged up and showing signs of impending readiness now, she is one to watch and will be moved up the list accordingly. Some longed for rain is the order of the day, newest mum and her baby are spending today in the barn, to keep them warm and especially to keep the cria (alpaca baby) dry. Young cria do not cope well with wet conditions. Work has almost finished on our newest addition, our workshop, studio and alpaca facility, The Sanctuary. More on this later.
