Early addition


When we bought our three new alpaca girls we knew thy were pregnant, but we thought the first one was due at the end of April, however when I was wandering back from the Acorn this morning I noticed a white thing near Vienna, I thought it might be a bag or something that had blown into the paddock so I went to move it. As I was walking across the white thing got up and started walking around!!!! A baby alpaca! Already! I don't think I've ever seen anything quite so cute in my life.
I ran and put some food in their troughs so that they would come up close then I ran in to get Lloyd. We spent the next age outside just looking at her (?) and taking lots of pics.
We have no idea if its a girl or a boy, we're going with girl just now, and my friend, Bella, came up with a lovely name.
Stella. Because of the wee star on her head. It suits her.

Here she is posing

A bit like the three bears! ( except Truffle isn't really 'daddy bear')



And finally you get to meet Truffle, she arrived a wee bit later than Vienna and Cocoa because Steve at Naturally Alpacas wanted to make sure she was pregnant.
I can't tell you how excited we are!


Edited to add
She is a HE. We've been down playing with him and cuddling him loads! His amazing mum let us and even nuzzled my head almost like she was telling us it was ok.  So while all this was going on we checked to see what sex he was and it's a boy. We've named him Herbert - Herbie for short.
