The Final Push

The alpaca birthing sequence reaches an important transition as the cria is fully expelled. This is the beginning of a new life!

The Final Push

11:00 AM - With a final push Rainsong completely expells the cria. In this picture we can see how the cria is hanging close to the ground as it is finally expelled. There is little chance of injury to the baby in its fall to the ground. We can also see another herdmate looking to make sure everything is as it should be.

Alpaca Sales

"A little further along we saw a reverend man named Pendergast, who had come to Soledad to build a church, standing under a cocoanut palm with his little black alpaca coat and green umbrella..."
