Yes Charlotte...keep an eye on them

Early on Thanksgiving morning Pleasant Journey Alpacas welcomed our first cria of this season. We woke to our maremma Charlotte doing a lot of barking. She barks a lot, as a good guard dog should, so we did not pay a lot of attention to what she was actually trying to tell us. We learned a valuable lesson when Glenn went out about 7:15 AM and saw our girl Bijou with her very first cria by her side. She presented us with a very nice dark fawn male that we named Gunssmoke (yes, it is Gunssmoke) sired by Aussie's Guns-n-Roses. So much for alpacas reading the book that crias should be born between 10AM and 2PM. This little one popped on the scene at about 6:00 in the morning.

Bijou is a wonderful and very attentive mom who always has one eye on little Gunssmoke. And he is always keeping an eye on her too as he LOVES that milk!

1 down, 7 more to arrive between now and May of 2012. Cinnamon Stix is due with another Altitude cria for us any day now. Yes, we are excited!

Stay tuned................
