First, we have our third cria born on our farm. She was actually born yesterday, but my camera was temporarily out of commission (leaving it out in a torrential downpour had nothing to do with this). Please welcome Summer Stormborn!
Here is Summer getting a kiss from her auntie Leia. Princess Leia loves babies!
We were also very excited to welcome a new boy from Georgia to our future stud row. This little guy is a son of Aussie .38 Special (who is a pretty big deal if you are a grey alpaca breeder), and out of a daughter of Rincon Cloud (who is also a pretty big deal if you are a grey alpaca breeder). With a pedigree like that, it is pretty hard to imagine how he could have exceeded my expectations, but he did. This guy is seriously hot stuff.
His name is Harmony, and he is still totally secure in his macho-hood. This guy knows he's gonna grow up to be a stud. This guy is seven months old, and he looks like this:
... Oh, yeah, and his fleece is utterly mind-boggling, too. Forgot to mention that little detail.
The tuxedo grey arm of our breeding program just got a lot more interesting.
K writes this stuff, for some reason that has yet to become apparent.
