October Surprise!

Can you believe the weather this week!  And to top it all off for about 1/2 an hour this afternoon, the snow came down in flakes as big as small birds and as fast if it was a light rain shower.  Fortunately, the ground is still warm and the snow didn't add up except for car windows.  Quite unseasonable for sure.

Yesterday, October 23, 2013, my 10 year old black alpaca, Jeanne, had her first cria -- a chocolate colored little girl!  I had pretty much given up hope of her ever having a cria as she was bred numerous times, confirmed each time, yet never a live birth.  This chocolate colored little girl is sure worth the wait though.  I have been thoroughly blessed this season with 4 cria babies and three of them girls.
