Rosie: The last few weeks have been quite busy here. All the alpacas are looking a lot smaller since their visit from Colin the shearer. That is always a very exciting event for Misty and I, although we are only allowed to watch from a distance whilst being held firmly on our leads! Poor Alfie looks like a baby again, just as he was beginning to grow up!
On Tuesday, the first baby of the year was born. Poppy always has her cria quite early and she managed to pick the only hot, sunny day we have had in the last two weeks. He is very black and has a fleece like crushed velvet, so my owners say. He has already learnt to tease us by charging up to the fence, making us bark and then running away. We are now waiting for Holly and Lucina to give birth so that he has playmate. Alfie, in the next paddock, is very intrigued by him and perhaps a little bit jealous, as he has started play fighting and neck wrestling Lolly whenever anyone is watching the new arrival!
