It’s A Girl! – New Alpaca Cria

Peaceful Heart's Lady Clare

Our lovely Pirate’s Treasure gave birth this afternoon.  We walked out and found our sweet surprise in the grass.  Lady Clare was soon on her feet and nursing, and surprised us again with how quick she was running around the pasture.  All the girls came over to greet her.  Gryffyndor didn’t know quite what to make of her, so took off running and hid behind his mama.  I’m sure they’ll be playing together soon.

Peaceful Heart's Lord Tennyson

Lady Clare’s sire is our impressive Lord Tennyson.  She is our first girl out of Tennyson, and we are thrilled to see how beautiful she is.  Lady Clare’s dam is Pirate’s Treasure, a lovely daughter of two of our previous alpacas, Snow Crystal and Tropical Pirate.

Heading back from the barn

The weather has been a bit windy and unpredictable, so we took Lady Clare and Treasure into the barn briefly to weigh Clare (she is a small girl at 13.4 pounds, but within the normal birth weight for an alpaca).  We’ve put a cria coat on her for her first day, but tomorrow should be warm.

Come on by the farm to visit with Lady Clare and Gryffyndor.  We have a couple more crias due soon.
