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.

"He was a big man; his features and even his ample moustache gave a disconcerting impression of rugged integrity,and I remember him chiefly in an alpaca or seersucker coat. Though much less formal, more democratic -- in a word -- than my father, I stood in awe of him for a different reason, and this I know now was because he possessed the penetration to discern the flaws in my youthful character..."
