Criation at last!

Well, after a very long wait, the first of our three alpacas that are late term pregnant had her cria today! Joy, a first time mom, gave birth while I was down at the barn doing chores. She had a beautiful little girl. It looks to be medium fawn in color (but its hard to tell for sure until completely dry).

She is strong and was up and standing within 15 minutes of birth and was nuzzled in nursing at about 30 minutes.

Joy is being a very attentive mom for her first time. I couldn't be happier!

Awwwwww, I'm really starting to get hooked on alpacas. They seem so sweet.
