A nice morning with our alpacas
by Jim Hobart on May 26th, 2009

Amid the morning bustle of getting ready for work, feeding 50 animals and making sure the baby alpacas are bottle fed we sometimes miss out on the "Magic of the moment" that so often occurs in the pasture. Today we let our new mom and cria out to be with the rest of the herd. Mom was proudly showing off her new little boy and all the other moms were sniffing him and socializing.It's important to incorporate the crias into the herd so they learn from the other alpacas.Daphne is a new mom so she was likely getting tips from the other moms while the new cria was getting pushed around by Trigger - our 5 week old cria we've been bottle feeding. Anyhow, I just took a pause for a few minutes...stopped and watched the Alpacas and headed back to the house with a big smile on my face. What a great way to start the day!
