Sitting about with the alpacas

Cria, like most babies, seem to turn up when they are ready. More waiting means more sitting around with the alpacas – which is quite a treat actually.

We name the cria by taking the next letter in the alphabet and since we have the herd name of Welsh Valley Alpacas, we have a book of Welsh baby names to help us. Some letters are limited (or don’t exist) and some are plentiful for male/female but not the other way around.

So far we have:

  • Lena
  • Meurig
  • Nidian
  • Olwena
  • Perl
  • Rebeca
  • Steffan
  • Tabitha

Still waiting on a few…
