In this episode, you will hear about the arrival of our first two cria this year and the names we chose for them.
Angharad daughter of Betsi weighed in at 8 kg and is strong and doing well. Her mother, Betsi still grumbles and calls the cria away whenever she sees me (normal for her) but is starting to settle more quickly than previous occasions.
Amelia broke her streak of boys by giving birth to her first daughter. Beautifully white and 6.5 kg for which I am sure Amelia as a smaller, more compact alpaca was very grateful.
The preparation pays off and even though you are waiting, the alpacas are not in a hurry and the cria will arrive when they are ready.
I hope your birthing season goes well and I will let you know more news next time.
Thanks for being here and please do share the podcast with someone you know who you think will enjoy it too.
Angharad – first cria of the season to Betsi
A collection of clips made “in the field” so not the best cinematography – it conveys something of being there though.
