Legends last cria of the year

It has been a really miserable day here, dull this morning then the rain arrived. It has been torrential most of the afternoon and the alpacas are all resembling drowned rats.

It's obviously not cold because they have been happy to sit out although I would have liked the mums with the youngest cria to take them off to get a little shelter.

Freyja who is a week old today and Minimus still have their the pajamas on at night (cria coats to most people), however I left on all day today because the forecast wasn't good. They have both had dry pj's on this evening, I could see some of the others wishing they'd been as lucky.

As the weather was bad I've been doing paper work and updates to the website. It's a never ending job and that was before I got an email from Carol saying she's knitted a couple more bits for me!
Finally I thought you might like to see Legend's last cria of the year, a white boy named Wheelhouse Ivory Star, born to Angelus, who we sold a little while ago to Pauline & Robert Cameron of Wheelhouse Alpacas. With the combined pedigree of Angelus who is from Jolimont Gianmarco and Legend of Spartacus who is from Peruvian Spartacus and Jolimont Commisario this chap should go far, Pauline informs me that his fleece is bright white with a lot of crimp already.
Many thanks for the photo and kind permission to share it with the world Pauline. We're looking forward to coming to see him!

Hope those P.J's are 'Gortexed' or hopefully you may have missed the rain on the east coast.

Congratulations Wheelhouse Alpacas

Nice one Debbie.
You seem to have an 'interesting' follower from Indonesia!
