We have had two new cria hit the ground since our last blog. It is always exciting to see new cria! still waiting one one more (as of June 3 mom is at day 352).

Lady Felina graced us with her presence on April 18th. While all appeared fine the first day, Felina started losing weight in the first 3 days. Her dam Mary was suffering from a mild case of mastitis. Once we got that taken care of, Felina started on a steady daily weight gain and is now a beautiful and proud little alpaca. Her adorable face will steal your heart! We believe her to be a light rose grey and sports the classic white face. Once again her sire, Adonnis' Altitude NS had done an incredible job! We are looking forward to showing this little girl starting in the fall of '12!

Durango Willy arrived one week later on Aril 24th. Knowing his dam's history and the sire that she was bred to (a Poseidon son) we predicted a 20 lb white male. We were wrong.........it was a 21.4 lb white male! This young male is loaded with long crimpy fiber. Crimp runs from tail to topknot. If you are going to have a white male, it had better be a good white male and we think Willy is just that!

As always, it is fun to watch cria play and we get such a kick out of seeing little Felina bulldog her way with Willy. At about 1/2 of his weight at 6 weeks of age, she has to throw her whole body into him. The little lady shows who is boss!
