Mom Rests

Mom rests after a long day at the job. All legs, the new cria has a full belly and is ready to explore.

Mother Alpaca Rests

1:30 PM - Mom gets a well deserved rest, but baby wants to go exploring. At this point Rainsong has expelled the placenta and the baby has successfully nursed a couple of times. Note how alert this baby appears, with its head and ears up.
