Savvy has 5 fat wiggly babies...I was right to be a bit concerned though. Much I as suspected, there was one very large baby holding things up. That baby , well, um....um.....well, was very large and not all parts were there when I found it this morning. I think Mom had to work really hard at getting this one out. Not what you hope to find before your first cup of Java in the morning....eeww! Happy to report that Mom and babies are all doing well now.
More New Arrivals
Ken and I headed back off for the rolling hills of Vermont, early Sunday morning to pick up the rest of the bunny cages. It was another perfect day. The sun was shining and the temps were mild with no humidity to speak of.
Terry and Ron had new additions of their own for us to see. In the 3 days since I had been there last, 2 new baby alpaca's had made their entrance into the world. This little one in the picture had ears that were turning out the wrong way, so Terry taped them up in the right direction
to help strengthen the ear muscle. Oh my......what cute little babies they are! We had an enjoyable time chatting with both Ron and Terry about alpacas. They are great people to get to know and have a lovely piece of heaven that they can call home. We look forward to having them visit this side of the mountain after the last of their alpaca babies makes it's entrance.
Even though I have been fervently working on Birch and waiting on babies, I have managed to squeeze in a few other things. Spinning consistent singles that are not over~twisted has been something that I have been really trying to work on. I have a little project that I have been working on with another friend and I am hoping to be able to use my angora blends on. There is no way under the sun that I will probably ever be able to spin laceweight doubles<grin>.......but I am am getting there with my singles.......at least I think I am.
Again.........feel free to send some good white wine names this way.......I know I am sipping on some after this long week of waiting!
