Cria Update ..

Dusty with baby Zeto . Minstrel with her little girl and Trienza is fascinated by the new arrival...

I can't believe that baby Zeto is one week old today !...he is a chunky little fella....and is very forward, typical boy !

On the other hand my second cria, little girl is very delicate and very sweet....she is much more quiet that baby Zeto. I am hoping to name her very soon if she continues to progress, just if you are wondering !!....I have a few names up my sleeve !!

Both babies are doing well, the little girl is feeding all by herself, she has got the hang of it, thankfully.... I have decided to supplement her feeds, if required....so at the moment she has had a extra feed from the bottle twice today. Minstrel is feeding the little one mostly, so we are just giving a helping hand.... only when required. If the little one takes it, she can have it.

We have had a very tiring week, little sleep, late night and being very concerned for our little new arrival.... I must mention however, I feel very sad at the latest blog from Coire Alpacas, who are just experiencing a really trying time..... these animals really tug your heart-strings..and when there are sad times, it's really hard to keep positive..... I know... I have been there....my thoughts are with you all.....try and stay strong.

We are still waiting for Marquette to have her baby, she is at day 349 !..

So glad to see they are doing well. They look lovely. I am particularly pleased that your little girl has recovered from her difficult start. Well done!
