From one extreme to the other

It has been stifling hot today, so much so that I've been filling water troughs on and off all day, not all the water was being drunk though..........

In between filling up the bowser and having my lunch Divinity popped out a cria almost a month early!  She obviously let Freyja have some of her gestation, as Divinity only went 324 days!  That two months less than Freyja!

Despite his much shortest gestation he actually weighs more than Attila (Freyja's little man) does tonight, weighing in at 5.11kg.
He is from Bozedown Reagan do it will be interesting to see how his fleece develops. 
Luckily for the new little man, he soon found his feet as Divinity felt the need to take him as far away from everyone else as was possible, which meant a long trek back down at tea time!

I hope the alpacas took it in turns to sit and cool off in the water troughs!
