In the previous episode, I mentioned I was giving up on the last three potentially pregnant alpacas. Just to prove me wrong, Olwyn gave birth the following day! A month late and late afternoon.
Wenna, a beautiful brown female is now happily running around in the field.
It was a late afternoon birth – never a good start and we are still having some feeding issues to work through with her and her mum. A coat overnight and top-up bottles are keeping me busy, together with lots of watching with a measure of anxiety and concern. It is sometimes like that.
We do what we can – and keep going.
