The Cria Presents

The alpaca birth sequence usually moves quickly once active labor begins. We expect to see a cria on the ground within an hour of when we have confirmed active labor, and will be looking to see if there are any problems if there isn't

Alpaca Cria Presents

10:40 AM - We have a head showing! In this case, Rainsong's water broke before the cria presented itself. It is not unusual for the water to break well after the cria has begun its entry into the world.

 
Alpaca Sales

"Yet kindness sat upon her aspect bland,
The tame alpaca stood and licked her hand;
She brought him gathered moss, and loved to deck
With flowery twine his tall and stately neck,
Whilst he with silent gratitude replies,
And bends to her caress his large blue eyes..."
