2010 cria update

Sue and I had a few little husbandry tasks to carry out yesterday and somehow, for some reason, all eleven of last years cria seperated from the adults and wandered into the little paddock which is right in front of the house. All the adults stayed out in the main field apart from Lily, who being the most wonderful alpaca in the world was probably just making sure they were alright. Anyway, so as not to spoil a photo opportunity I asked her to leave and we closed the gate. I thought you might like to see how 'our mob' are getting on.

What a lovely row of fluffy bottoms! From the left, Rory, Edwina, Flora, Fernando and Runa.

The others, sensing there was something interesting over that wall, went for a look.

There was nothing there except some fat bloke with a camera!

Ok, testing me as some are only presenting distant buttocks, but from left to right - Runa, Fernando, Edwina, Rory, Roger Resilient, Ruby-May, Flora, Reeya, Rosa, Rafiki and Rico.

After all that they had some hay. Runa, Rafiki, Edwina, Ruby-May and Rosa.

Right, now get back to your work you lot, you don't get paid to look at pictures of alpacas!

What beautiful the fawn fluffy bottoms one. They look uniformly high quality babes, with lovely standy-uppy fleeces. No tired huacaya fleeces looking like suris at Patou Land!

Great colours, and great names too. Everyone one looks very happy. Glad your feeling better.
