Zanzibah Zeto...!


I know that regular followers will know that here at Zanzibah Alpacas we are on a bit of a 'Z' theme....well it had to be official.

So, I have decided to call the latest arrival, Zanzibah Zeto....I just thought of his name this afternoon.. I think it suits him.

I have lots of weird and wonderful 'Z' names on my list, so it will be a little while before I run out of suggestions.

Mother and baby seem to be doing well. He appears to be very strong, he was up on his feet within minutes of being born. We are all tucked up safe and sound for tonight. Although my crias are late this year, it shouldn't be too much of a problem as some would know, I bring my alpacas in every night for bed-time !... I have even put a coat on him, to keep him warm. Just for good measure. So Dusty and Zeto are separated from the main herd at the moment, although they are still in the same building...in the maternity suite !! next to the other expectant girls.

I hope that the others will soon have their babies, now we have started....the girls are at 342 days at the moment...so hopefully the others will be well on their way.

I shall be keeping an eye on them. Its lovely to have one here, safe and sound....now we just have to give him the best start we can..... he has a big world to grow up in !!

Love the name! Did you weigh him?

I stopped putting Kealani's bbed time coat on (affectionately known as her pj's)the night before last because it was getting too tight. She is growing very fast and didn't really need it anymore.

The greys always draw attention to themselves, and Zeto looks good :-)
