She's done it!!!

Firstly may I just make it clear that I did not let the alpacas into the house.

Anyway to more fantastic news! Lily has produced a cria!! She's done it!! We are ecstatic!

I was on my way to work for a 1 O'clock start when the lovely Mrs S phoned to say that a nose had appeared. Cue handbrake turn and a bit of gunning of an old landrover engine back to Patou HQ. Nothing was going to make me miss this one.

As I arrived I was able to see Lily push out a whole head and then some feet. Ten minutes later and it was all done and dusted. A beautiful, healthy, strong female weighing in at a very respectable 9 kilos.

She was up on her feet within 5 minutes and quickly suckling within half an hour. What a star Lily was, she was great and instantly took to being a new Mum.

Sadly I really did have to go to work then and reluctantly dragged myself off leaving the lovely Mrs S and Angus in charge.

I am still at work but am compiling the blog in my 'refreshment break'. I can't wait to have a good look at her in the morning. Photos will no doubt appear here tomorrow.
