Yesterday was all set to be our first two-cria-in-one-day day, when it decided to become our first three-cria-in-one-day day, instead.
... And it started off right, with this guy. This guy, in case you can't tell, is an extreme leopard appaloosa. He is also -- in case you can't tell -- absolutely awesome. He looked like a week-old baby at only an hour old. This dude is going to grow up to be a serious alpaca, to the point where the leopard appy coloring is almost just icing on the cake. (Almost ... Given that this is only our second-ever appaloosa cria, and our first male leopard appaloosa, period, the coloring is pretty darned exciting.)
So, without further ado, here's ... Okay, he doesn't quite have a name yet.
The other two crias will probably be featured in a subsequent 'blog post. This guy just totally deserved a post all his own. Besides, it wouldn't be fair to the other two to have to follow up this guy. This boy is gonna be pretty hard to top.
K writes this stuff, for some reason that has yet to become apparent.
