Birthing pool maybe?

It has been glorious today, all the alpacas have been sunbathing.  The tables have certainly turned, last week Meketaten & Cassiphia, who are still in full fleece were sniggering at the rest of the shorn herd, today they were looking mighty hot and the rest of the girls were looking rather smug.

After yesterdays brief lapse of concentration Sienna hasn't let Kirkley out of her sight, he is a real little sweetie!
Little Miss Irraquoy has been paddling today, she is always one of the first to have a good paddle, although I'd rather it wasn't in the water trough!  She is now 10 days overdue, so all being well she should be next Rosemary.
 As you can see from this photo she is looking rather round.
Mind you so is Star who isn't actually due for over 2 weeks, but last year as a maiden she produced a huge baby, over 10kg. 
It should be Ursula after LMI but I think my money is on Willow, despite not being due until next month she already has a lot of milk.
