On May 25th, 2012 our first cria of the year arrived. The cria presented as breech but with a bit of help from the vet Gabriella delivered her first cria - a baby girl. The cria is the first for both the dam, Gabriella, and sire, Soul Seeker. The cria weighed in at 14 lbs and was up and walking within the first half hour. All is going well with mom and cria.

 We have wrapped up shearing for another year. It took 3 days and 7 people but we got all 29 alpacas sheared. In addition to shearing the animal we also cut toe nails, and give each animal 3 needles while they are on the shearing table. We are all happy that shearing is over with for another year – including the alpacas!
